Society for Utopian Studies

Looking forward to presenting at the upcoming annual conference for the Society for Utopian Studies at UC Berkeley. This year's theme is "Disruption, Displacement, and Disorder" in the Bay Area, and I'll be presenting on my research into the Google Buses, the history of BART, and the push for self-driving cars.

Utopia After the Human

On April 11–12, I'll be participating in Utopia After the Human, the fifth symposium organized by the research network Imaginaries of the Future: Historicizing the Present. I'll be presenting work from my ongoing research on the ways that ideas of the Anthropocene circulate in visual media, focusing on dystopian imagery and environmental documentary.
