Harris Kornstein

Public & Applied Humanities, University of Arizona

Harris Kornstein is a scholar and artist whose research and art practice focuses on digital culture, surveillance, data and algorithms, media art/activism, visual culture, disability, and queer theory. Their current book project, Enchanting Technology: Obfuscation, Play, and Other Queer Strategies for Countering Surveillance Capitalism, documents queer and trans cultural strategies that mobilize techniques of play, misuse, and obfuscation to counter the harms of surveillance capitalism—a process they theorize as “queer enchantment.” Harris’s research has been published in Surveillance & Society, Curriculum Inquiry, Studies in Gender & Sexuality, and the International Encyclopedia of Gender, Media, and Communication; their research has been supported a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship and Charlotte W. Newcombe Dissertation Fellowship from the Institute for Citizens & Scholars; and their writing on digital and queer cultures has appeared in The Guardian, Wired, NBC News, and Salon, among others.
