I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be joining the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London this September, as a Lecturer in Global Digital Cultures. The department has gathered a wide array of faculty, building connections across the humanities, the social sciences, and information technologies – a familiar environment for someone coming from an I School.
I’m excited to be joining my new colleagues to make sense of how these things we variously term “digital”, “information”, or “data” interact with the thing we term “society” – and I’m looking forward to hearing from old friends and new interested in these issues.
In my new position, I’ll be continuing my work on technical cultures, studying how sociotechnical relations of practice circulate within and across territorial and organizational boundaries to build and maintain the global infrastructure we call the Internet.
Or in short, studying the people who make the Internet go!
