CANCELLED – Numbered Lives: Quantum Mediations of Life in Early Anglo-America

April 8, 2020 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm  |  Humanities 1, Room 210


Jacqueline Wernimont is an antiracist, feminist scholar working toward greater justice in digital cultures. She writes about long histories of media and technology—particularly those that count and commemorate—and entanglements with archives and historiographic ways of knowing. Her book, Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media, is out with MIT Press. She is a network weaver across humanities, arts, and sciences. This work includes codirecting HASTAC (Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory) and serving as the Inaugural Chair of Digital Humanities and Social Engagement at Dartmouth College.


Additional Events: Jacqueline Wernimont will be at UC Santa Cruz from April 8th-10th, 2020 as THI’s Scholar-in-Residence. On April 8th, she will present “Quantified Education: Unpacking What We’re Tracking” at CITL’s Annual Convocation. On April 10th, she will lead a workshop on “Feminist in the Academy” for THI’s PhD+ series.


The Center for Cultural Studies hosts a weekly Wednesday colloquium featuring work by faculty and visitors. The sessions consist of a 40-45 minute presentation followed by discussion. We gather at noon, with presentations beginning at 12:15 PM. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunches; the Center provides coffee, tea, and cookies.

All Center for Cultural Studies events are free and open to the public. Staff assistance is provided by the Humanities Institute.
