Jacqueline Wernimont, Inaugural Chair of Digital Humanities and Social Engagement and Associate Prof. of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Dartmouth College

4:00 pm – BC-120
Faculty Workshop: “Performing Archives: Digital, Sonic, and Haptic Representations”
Wernimont has drawn on a number of different media, from textiles to text analysis, in order to “perform archives.” In this workshop, she will lead participants in some hands-on work with haptic and sonification tools, as well as looking at several examples of digital performing archives.

7:00 pm – LC-28
Talk: “Early Data Bodies and Anglo-American Empire”
Drawing from her recent book, Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media, Wernimont will discuss the imperial logics of “quantum media,” particularly the earliest self-tracking technologies from 16th-century “waywisers” to colonial pedometers and the gendered use of self-tracking in elite dance and athletic cultures in Anglo-America. The discussion will include ideological connections between 21st devices and those of the pre- or early modern era.
