The project BODIES OF EVIDENCE provides new perspectives on the body in the filed of digital forensics. Looking at the case of DNA in specific, the project has three aims: (1) It advances the theory and empirics of bodies and embodiment in digital forensics by studying the way in which DNA draws different forms of embodiment together in the making of forensic evidence. (2) It provides empirical insights beyond Western cultures of measuring bodies in the context of forensics. (3) It studies how digital forensics and data about bodies influence human lives, but also the concepts life, body and evidence more generally.
The project has strong empirical components. In order to contribute to these, the candidate must have training in qualitative methods, as well as an interest in sociological research on technology. Science and Technology Studies, Digital Humanities, perspectives from Feminism and Critical Race Studies will be relevant frameworks for studying these developments.
