AAG Annual Meeting 2017

Though my current academic home is in an anthropology department, my research into landscapes as palimpset of memory, technology, and statecraft cuts across disciplinary boundaries. This spring I will be presenting at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Geographers (AAG) in Boston. My paper "Actually-Existing Economic Ideologies in Conservation Data Infrastructure" explores some of the political and ethical implications of the adoption of Big Data analytics in conservation biology and in land management. It is part of an exciting, two-part panel on Data Infrastructures, Nature and Politics. I'm looking forward to sharing ideas with scholars from Geography and beyond!
