This working paper comes from my recently completed dissertation, Inventing the Economy, Or: How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the GDP, which examines the construction of the economy as a socio-technical object. This research was funded by the National Science Foundation (Award #1229894) and the Rackham Graduate School at the University of Michigan.

With Greta Krippner, I am working on a larger project on the history of gender and race discrimination in insurance pricing. The first paper from the project is tentatively titled “Undoing Difference: Risk Classification and Gender Discrimination in Consumer Financial Markets.”

With Emily Bosk, I am working on a comparative analysis of the politics of quantified organizational decision-making with a focus on the treatment of race and racial discrimination. The first paper from this project is tentatively titled “Summary Decisions: Selection Devices and the Quantification of Race.”
