BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Amy Gaeta is a Research Associate at the Leverhulme Center for the Future of Intelligence at the University of Cambridge. She uses feminist theory and critical disability studies to analyze the emotional, aesthetic, and political dimensions of human-tech relations, especially those concerning consumer drones. Gaeta’s research is deeply concerned with how semi-autonomous technologies impact the formation of subjecthood and ideas of humanness. Her work has appeared in First Monday, the Journal of Visual Culture, N+1, Culture, Theory, & Critique, and more.

Gaeta is part of the UKRI funded project Droned Life organized by the Center for Drones and Culture at the CFI. Prior to joining the project, Gaeta was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She earned her PhD in English and Visual Cultures at the University of Wisconsin-Madison as well.

She is strongly committed to the aims of disability justice, many of which inform her work as a researcher, advocate, and a poet. She has contributed to numerous pedagogical, community-based, and artistic projects that aim to promote the strengthening of disability culture and anti-ableism.
