Dr. Bench’s research revolves around encounters between bodies and machine/media technologies. She particularly attends to how human bodies and technological devices are imagined in relation to each other, and how technologies facilitate the the circulation and transmission of movements, gestures, and even bodily schema. Her research asks how people leverage the various technologies at their disposal for cultural expression, political control, and social action.
