about

Hi, I’m Emma, welcome to my website.

I’m an instructor and PhD student at Virginia Tech, where my research exists at the intersection of media theory, STS and continental philosophy. In my dissertation, I theorize datafication as a political force, examining contemporary research on psychedelic drugs as a challenge to a certain “data ideology.” A web-based version of my curriculum vitae is at this link, and this one gives you a downloadable PDF.

I am also a creative writer and musician — sometimes I post non-academic writing and original music here. The earliest content is from 2014.

Other stuff:

Behind this link I’ve indexed a lot of recent writing, some published.
My academia.edu homepage has strictly academic content, including teaching materials.
Music: http://stamm.bandcamp.com
Twitter: @turing_tests
I dig it when people reveal themselves here
New for 2018, this site has a blogroll! Yes, like it’s 2003. Check it
And you can contact me via email: stamm@vt.edu.

Thanks for visiting!
