andrew hoskins

Professor Andrew Hoskins  is an Interdisciplinary Research Professor of Global Security at the University of Glasgow. He currently holds an AHRC Research Fellowship on   ‘Technologies of Memory’, which investigates the cultural and organizational memory of warfare through war diaries before and after the connective turn. ( see )

Andrew’s research connects multiple aspects of emergent digital society: media, memory, conflict, security, and privacy to explore holistically the interplay and impact of contemporary media and memory ecologies.

His latest major book is a collaboration with Professor John Tulloch: Risk and Hyperconnectivity: Media and Memories of Neoliberalism (Oxford University Press, 2015). Hoskins and Tulloch argue for an interdisciplinary dialogue between the three major intellectual paradigms that have dealt separately with risk events: risk theory, neoliberalization theory and connectivity theory.

Andrew is founding Editor-in-Chief of the Sage journal of Memory Studies, founding Co-Editor of the Palgrave Macmillan book series Memory Studies and founding Co-Editor of the Routledge book series Media, War & Security.

He also leads the Economic and Social Research Council Google Data Analytics Project: ‘The Role of Internet Search in Elections in Established and Challenged Democracies’ (
