Bjorn Beijnon works as of 2021 as a researcher for the lector Access to Justice and as a lecturer at Creative Business. Currently he investigates the accessibility and inclusivity of online jurisdictional services in The Netherlands.
Bjorn is also a PhD candidate at the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA), University of Amsterdam. His PhD research focuses on digital subjectification by big tech companies through attentional capturing. Through cultural analyses and media ethnographies, he analyses how digital platforms subjectify their users in contemporary surveillance cultures.
In the Digital Divide project, Bjorn investigates how the interfaces of Dutch jurisdictional websites steer (potential) litigants in searching, finding, understanding and using information. Concurrently, he analyses what levels of internet skills are expected of litigants on these websites, based on their design and information.
