The Site

Becoming Other explores the evolving relationship between humans and technology, especially around reproductive and children’s everyday health and wellness. 



I write about science and technology in terms of how it alters the way we experience our everyday lives.  As an anthropologist and historian, I view technology as coded within our cultural fabric and love thinking about how cultural structures dynamically define and are defined by the development and adoption of technology.  

I received my BA in cultural anthropology from Columbia University and my MA in East Asian Culture, with an emphasis on Japan, from New York University. At the New School for Social Research I worked with Orit Halpern around time, memory and representation related to the history of science and technology. Orit’s class, Becoming Other, was one of the inspirations for this site.
