György Túry

György Túry, Associate Professor, holds a Ph.D. in Literary and Cultural Studies and is a two-time Fulbright grant recipient (Columbia University and Ohio State University). His interests range from literary/cultural studies to media studies, and has published papers on gonzo and new journalism, literary journalism in Hungary and Poland, Marshall McLuhan, Susan Sontag, Hans Magnus Enzensberger and the 1960s New Left’s visions of the media futures, and the cultural politics and practices of illiberalism, among other topics. Apart from literary and cultural studies he has worked in international higher education management. In recent years his interests have also included the artistic use of inter-, multi- and transmedia in installations, especially in the works of British artist Isaac Julian and Greek artist George Drivas. Following Mark Deuze, he thinks that we no longer live with, but in media.
