Network Experiments and the Administration of Control in the US Military, from the Cold War to the War on Terror
My research situates issues around computational decision-making, automation and accountability in contemporary warfare in the context of Cold War technological advancement. Of prime concern is how concepts of the individual, the interface, and the institution impact on notions of agency and autonomy in war. My methodology, comprised of analytical reading and annotating of grey media collected from archival research, seeks opportunities for creative intervention and presentation of these materials.
Cold War, technopolitics, software studies, histories of computing, military theory
