Distinguished Chair, Digital Humanities and Social Engagement
Associate Professor, Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
I specialize in long histories of digital media, histories of quantification, and technologies of commemoration. I am an active part of the FemTechNet collective.
I am part of several collaborative projects, each of which is in my projects section. My book, Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media (MIT Press, 2018) traces long histories (21st century to 16th century) of particular technologies like wearable devices, body measurements, and body counts.
I took a Ph.D. and M.A. in English Literature from Brown University and a B.A. in English from the University of Iowa, where I also studied Molecular Biology. I cut my digital humanities teeth at the Brown University Women Writers Project, where I began as an encoder and later worked as the project manager and textbase editor. Prior to Dartmouth, I taught at Harvey Mudd College, Scripps College, and Arizona State University.
