Hi, my name is Maria Job. I am pursuing my graduate studies with the Department of English at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I am interested in the biopolitical and technopolitical conditions of contemporary global society and culture as represented by everyday artifacts (imagined and real) that exist all around us: robots, prosthetics, board games, and clothes for example, are some of the objects I have begun pondering about. I am also interested in the intersections between the ‘biological’ and the ‘technological’ as seen in everyday life and culture. I am a novice in thinking about these ideas, but feel free to reach out to me on any of the topics mentioned or collaborations! 🙂
I intend to use this digital space to share some lines of thought, some photographs, and some potential ideas for future projects.
