Max Kortlander is involved in a number of our European projects. His role at the Waag is primarily as a writer and researcher.
Within the realm of society and technology, his main interest is citizen-to-citizen diplomacy, and how digital tools might be created to foster peaceful dialogue between people who otherwise don’t have the opportunity to speak with one another.
Max has bachelors degrees in International Relations and Spanish from Bucknell University, and a masters degree in Media Studies from the University of Amsterdam. As a researcher, writer and editor, he had the opportunity to work with interesting folks from all over the world—novelists, nutritionists, filmmakers, NGOs, and others who have brought him on board to help to tell their stories.
