About Sarah Myers West | CV
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the AI Now Institute working on issues of gender, race and power in AI. Much of my research engages with the culture, politics and practices of technology developers, and incorporates both historical and ethnographic methods. My current projects explore themes of power and resistance in the history of AI.

I received my doctoral degree in 2018 from the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California. My dissertation examined the cultural history and politics of encryption technologies from the 1960s to the present day. I’ve published my work in journals such as New Media & Society, the International Journal of Communication, Policy & Internet and Business and Society.
