Natasha Dow Schüll’s current research concerns the rise of digital self-tracking technologies and the new modes of introspection and self-governance they promote. Drawing on ethnographic field research, Dow Schüll will explore the vision of technologically assisted self-regulation that drives the design of wearable tracking devices. She will discuss how such products exemplify and short-circuit cultural ideals for individual responsibility and self-regulation. 

Natasha Dow Schüll is an associate professor with the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University. She is a cultural anthropologist and former Weatherhead Resident Scholar at SAR (2002-2003)
