Catalyst for digital research in the arts and humanities

My commitment to Digital Humanities is grounded in my belief that the humanities of the future need to critically engage digital technology. In particular, I am invested in practices of experimental and experiential learning through which scholars and students gain practical and historical insight into software and systems they use every day. My dissertation examined how US-American photographers in the 1970s used the process of creating photographs to challenge dominant conceptions of the technology of their time—analog photography—as transparent, automatic, and neutral. As Research Specialist in Digital Art History at the Getty Research Institute, I have designed and collaborated on research projects that similarly interrogate assumptions and claims about contemporary technology, focusing in particular on collections as data and computer vision.
