Hello! I'm Caroline Jack, a media historian and media theorist working at the intersection of media studies, history of technology, business history, and internet research. I am a Postdoctoral Scholar the Data + Society Research Institute, a non-profit research institute in NYC that focuses on the social and cultural issues arising from data-centric technological development.
I'm trained as a media scholar (Ph.D. 2016, Cornell University), so you'll see a particular attention to media artifats, processes, and imaginings in my work. I'm especially interested in media technologies and cultural sensemaking around the twin concepts of publicity and propaganda. You can learn more about my research interests, academic training, intellectual approach, and general background at the "About Me" tab.
My publications and other projects are summarized under the "Projects" tab.
I like to geek out with other people who love history, technology, culture and critique. Check out the "Events" tab for places we can connect, or drop me a line via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or twitter (@cjack).
