Before joining NYU’s doctoral program in the fall of 2018, Arne studied German Literature and Musicology at Humboldt University Berlin and Cornell University.
Arne’s work revolves around text, thought, and audio-visual culture from the late 19th century to the present. His research interests include epistemology, semiotics, affect– and media theory.
Arne presented his research at conferences of the American Comparative Literature Association, the International Autumn School of HU Berlin, University of Vienna and the University of Warsaw, and within the thematic graduate research network Literature–Knowledge–Media. In the academic year 2017/18, he was awarded Cornell University’s Schurman Assistantship.
Arne co-organized the Graduate conference Glitch: Poetics of error (NYU, 2021) and the public lecture Asynchronicities: towards a speculative ontology (NYU, 2019, co-organized by Armen Avanessian).
