Rianne Riemens is a PhD candidate at the Radboud Institute for Culture & History. She is working on a dissertation about the role of digital platforms in the climate crisis. The research focuses on the texts and images through which tech companies create a narrative about the role of technology in the climate crisis. It aims to understand the green imaginary tech companies create and its ideological underpinnings. The PhD research is part of the ERC project ‘Platform Discourses’, led by dr. Niels Niessen.

Rianne has completed a BA in Language and Culture Studies at Utrecht University and a RMA in Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam. Her research focuses on digital platforms and platform discourses, including topics such as platform urbanism, platform capitalism and the climate crisis. Before her current position, she has worked as a junior researcher at Utrecht University and as writer at the Dutch cultural institutions Waag and SETUP.
