DH Forum: Jo Guldi, Oct 4

Jo Guldi is a scholar of the history of Britain and its empire who is especially involved in questions of state expansion, the contestation of property under capitalism, and the how state and property concepts are recorded in the landscape of the built environment. She uses machine learning, statistics, and other big-data methods to approach the traditional concerns of the humanities. Her work follows the study of dead languages, critical theory, and the human record of the built environment as an archive of everyday experience.
