Post-Doctoral Research Associate

Suzanne van Geuns plans to create a methodological toolkit to help graduate students and faculty apply their expertise to social debates about internet culture and infrastructure. This toolkit emerges from her research on the rightwing internet, from conservative Evangelical mommy bloggers to discussion boards dedicated to racist science. Suzanne's scholarship broadly examines the intellectual exchange between computational projects and the gendered or sexual imagination, with her most recent project focusing on artificial intelligence research as it appears in heterosexual seduction advice. She received her PhD from the University of Toronto, where she was a fellow at the Schwartz-Reisman Institute for Technology and Society.
