Em Nordling

Em Nordling is a PhD candidate in English Literature at Emory University. Their scholarship uses British literature of the long nineteenth century to interrogate the image of the protest crowd as it relates to both the function of collective agency and to the period’s burgeoning biopolitical forces. Using quantitative textual analysis, they examine the impact of quantification itself on the period’s crowd and population control discourse, and how it relates to racist scientific ideologies. In addition to their work with AIAI, they currently work as Research Data Associate at Sounding Spirit Research Lab and reviewer/essayist at Tor.com.
