MemberTaylor R. Genovese

Taylor R. Genovese draws on his background in sociocultural anthropology and political theory as a doctoral student in the Human and Social Dimensions of Science and Technology (HSD) program at Arizona State University, where he is pursuing his interest in the social imaginaries of human futures on Earth and in outer space. He is doing so by pulling from the intellectual and applied traditions of abolition democracy, new materialisms, critical secular studies, relational ethics, performance studies, multimodality, Marxism, and anarchism. His dissertation work focuses on producing a genealogy of futurist discourse surrounding human immortality and space travel. He is tracing the legacy of these ideas from the Proletkult movement as well as from the Russian Cosmists, a loose-knit esoteric political-spiritual-artistic group operating in the decades surrounding the Russian Revolution. He is interested in the ways in which utopian ideas rooted in human solidarity get transmuted into the egocentric dreams of the wealthy through declensionist narratives.

MemberAlison Pope

I spend most of my time thinking about and working on digital technology and its power to inform, educate and entertain.   Like any tool, digital technology is progressive and creative, advancing and improving our lives in many ways; but it can also be disruptive and even dangerous depending on how it is used.  These effects can be intentional or unintended.  My aim is to understand how to best use technology to engage and empower as many people as possible whilst preventing or mitigating the auto-information disorders that degrade digital environments. My scholarship spans history, cultural and media studies, information science, social science and computing. My research interests centre on the evolution of documentary and communication media, the adoption of technology and associated socio-cultural shifts. My  research has explored different advances in digital media: the web and digital publishing, digital television and narrowcasting, and the growing use of data sensors to quantify and analyse environments and behaviours. Working as a business analyst I’ve applied a wide range of methods and techniques from both my research training and professional certifications to design and develop various systems and services.  I have a growing interest in behaviour driven design, data ethics and accessibility.
