Chris Hesselbein
DIG 
Chris Hesselbein received his PhD in Science and Technology Studies at Cornell University. He is an ethnographer who studies how knowledge and technology, both digital and more mundane, are co-constructed with conceptions of social order and self-identity. Chris is particularly interested in exploring how the production and consumption of technoscience inform, and often naturalize/normalize, our understandings of embodiment, materiality, and aesthetics. Other research projects examine how (expert) knowledge is established as (un)authoritative, and how ‘alternative arti/facts’ are enacted on digital platforms through algorithmic processes.
