I’m a historian of science, technology, and media, a digital humanist, and a doctoral candidate in the Department of History and Sociology of Science at the University of Pennsylvania.
My dissertation, “The Revolution Will Be Videotaped: Making a Technology of Consciousness in the Long 1960s,” is about how video became a political and psychological technology as it left the television studio. I follow portable video recorders and the feedback discourse that accompanied them through American institutions of art, psychiatry, radical politics, and television broadcasting, bringing the histories of cybernetics and the human sciences together with those of media and the New Left.
My other research interests include the histories of theistic evolutionism, anthropological race concepts, personal computing, and experiential education.
