In late April, I'll be presenting research that I've been collaborating on with Elizabeth Wissinger, on the possible futures of wearable technology, and the ways that tech-industry ideology intersects with and shapes the body, especially femme/gendered bodies. We'll be presenting in the morning on the first day of Theorizing the Web 2018, at the Museum of … Continue reading Theorizing the Web 2018

The No Place Like Home project, for which I am the web project designer and developer, has been in the news a bunch lately, leading up to our launch of the second phase of the project on October 19. This year's event will highlight the results of a five-site survey of over 1,700 renters in … Continue reading No Place Like Home in the News
A lot of the "coincidences" Julie Beck imagines as meaningful in her recent Atlantic article about her quest to meet the "wildly different" other women with her name, just seem part of being a middle-class, college-educated white person in the US with a common moniker.

The other papers cover … Continue reading Utopia After the Human

As the interplay between visions of the future and cities as we live in and build them is one of my very favorite subjects, I'm thrilled to have been invited to participate on a panel on LA's central role in visions of California and the future.
