The CDHI warmly welcomes Khanh V.N. Vo as the 2022-23 JHI-CDHI Digital Humanities Postdoctoral Fellow. Dr. Vo (Ph.D. College of William and Mary, 2021) completed her doctorate in American Studies and has consistently worked toward a career that spans academic teaching, public history, and the digital humanities, which she approaches through the lens of digital culture, game studies, and scientific and technological discourse.
Her research examines how the labor of marginalized groups can be understood through the discourse of robotics and automation, and more broadly, how discourses on robotics within the humanities and within science and technology communities have diverged.
Dr. Vo will join the JHI for the Labour theme year to work on the project “‘All the Work Without the Workers’: Robotic Labor in the America Imaginary.”
