Isabella Haid

Isabella Haid (Dallas, Texas) is a third year at Bard College studying Computer Science and American Studies with a concentration in Experimental Humanities. Focused on the intersection of technology and personhood, she is curious about emerging forms of media, from livestreams to virtual reality, and how they embody cybernetic celebrity worship or community building. She is generally curious about how the algorithms and owners of communications technologies inform online interactivity, performance, and belonging. At the heart of this is an interest in how subcultures develop across online platforms and the ways in which these collectivities reify or resist consumerism, capitalist subjectivity, or the attention economy. Alongside this, she hopes to encourage conversation about personal identities being commodified, complicated, or rejected as a result of online interactivity.
