Biography

Jacqueline Wernimont is a founding co-director of the HS Collab and an assistant professor of English at Arizona State University, where she specializes in literary history, feminist digital media, histories of quantification, and technologies of commemoration. She directs the new Graduate Certificate program in Digital Humanities and she is currently a fellow of the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics, where she works on new civil rights in digital cultures with a particular emphasis on the long histories of our technologies and practices. She is also a fellow of ASU's Global Security Initiative. Wernimont is an active part of the FemTechNet collective. Her other affiliations include ASU’s School for the Future of Innovation in Society, Synthesis, the Center for Cybersecurity and Digital Identity, the Nexus Lab for Transdisciplinary Informatics and Digital Humanities, and the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.

Wernimont is also working on a monograph that traces long histories (21st century to 16th century) of particular technologies like archives and body counts. She took a doctorate and master's in English literature from Brown University and a bachelor's in English from the University of Iowa, where she also studied molecular biology. She cut her digital humanities teeth at the Brown University Women Writers Project, where she began as an encoder and later worked as the project manager and textbase editor. Prior to ASU, Wernimont taught at Scripps College as an assistant professor and Harvey Mudd College as a postdoctoral fellow and visiting assistant professor.
