Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media

Photo of cover of hardback copy of Numbered Lives

Numbered Lives debuted in fall 2018 from MIT Press. Using a two part structure to historicize the counting of life and death in Britain and the United States, Numbered Lives is a much needed history of the role of colonial, corporate, and religious thinking in our modern quantified lives. Two major media, pedometers and mortality tables, are featured in this wide-ranging trans-Atlantic media history.
