Lance C. Thurner (PhD Rutgers, 2018) is currently an adjunct professor in the History Department. He is deeply involved in exploring how tools of the digital humanities can be used and repurposed to achieve feminist, decolonial, and anti-racist teaching goals. For examples of his pedagogical projects and his students’ work, see Empire’s Progeny: Race and Imperialism in the Americas and its sister project, States of Belonging: Citizenship, Identity, and Globalization in Modern Latin America.

Professor Thurner’s research and writing address knowledge production, political subjectivities, and racial and national identities in eighteenth and nineteenth-century Mexico. He is host of the podcast New Books in Science, Technology, and Society, for which he interviews authors of new works that speak to the methods and politics of applying a global perspective to the history of science and medicine and the role of the humanities in the age of the Anthropocene.
