Jacob Gaboury

is Assistant Professor of Digital Media and Visual Culture at Stony Brook University, SUNY. His work is concerned with how the history of digital imaging technologies continues to shape their contemporary use and circulation.

His current book, titled Image Objects, offers a material history of early computer graphics and their role in the transformation of computing from a mathematical tool into an interactive medium. His forthcoming project, On Uncomputable Numbers, proposes a queer theory of computing as viewed through a set of foundational figures in the early history of computation and mathematics.

Currently on research leave (2015-2016) at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin.
