Egle Rindzevičiūtė received her PhD in Culture Studies from Linköping University in Sweden (2008). Her dissertation title was Constructing Soviet Cultural Policy: Cybernetics and Governance in Lithuania after World War II. In 2009 she was awarded a three-year Browaldh postdoctoral scholarship by Handelsbanken Stiftelse and was affiliated with the Gothenburg Research Institute, the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. In addition, Rindzevičiūtė worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Department for Studies of Culture & Social Change, Linköping University (2008-2011). Her previous positions included visiting posts at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) in Oslo, Humboldt University in Berlin, and the ESRC Centre for Studies of Socio-Cultural Change (CRESC) at The Open University in Milton Keynes. Since January 2012 she has been a member of the project FUTUREPOL, a study of the political history of future at Sciences Po, Paris.

Her current research explores the history and sociology of technoscientific governance, particularly the transfer of models from natural sciences to the policy making. Her work is much inspired by the sociology of translation and Michel Foucault’s writings about governmentality.
