Curriculum Vitae

Eden Medina is Associate Professor of Informatics and Computing, Adjunct Associate Professor of History, and Director of the Rob Kling Center for Social Informatics at Indiana University, Bloomington. Her research bridges the history of technology and the history of Latin America and asks how studies of technology can enrich our understanding of broader historical processes. She is the author of Cybernetic Revolutionaries: Technology and Politics in Allende's Chile. The book uses computer history in Chile to study the connection between political innovation and technological innovation and the ways that political beliefs shape the design of computer systems. Medina received her Ph.D. in 2005 from MIT in the History and Social Study of Science and Technology. She also holds a degree in Electrical Engineering and a Certificate in Women’s Studies from Princeton University and is spending the 2013-2014 academic year at Yale Law School.
