Mathias Klang


I am an Associate Professor in Political Communication and Social Media at University of Massachusetts in Boston.

My research explores the ways in which we attempt to control technology and the ways in which our
technology regulates us. In particular, I am fascinated how technology impacts on civil rights.

My work looks at the ways in which our desire for convenient technology have led us to a slow but steady deterioration of many of our fundamental rights.

The point of this work is not to avoid technology, but to imagine the legal protections and social norms needed in a technological society.

On this site you will find, a list of my Publications, a selection of my Public Speaking, and some information about my Teaching.

For my contact details, and more information, look at the About Me page. There is also an occasional
Blog and an eclectic collection of Quotes.

I also maintain a list of Books licensed under Creative Commons.
