Simogne Hudson's research interests concern the affective pulses of technology in the context of the prison. Informed by Science and Technology Studies and attending to the flows of voice and memory in telecommunications policy, her work considers the boundaries and porosity of prison walls and the role of the (telephone) voice in legal and carceral contexts.
Simogne holds a B.A. from Portland State University in Women's Studies. There, her work focused on the co-construction of knowledge and racialized gender performativity in online beauty communities. While at Portland State, Simogne worked with first year students in a course on race and social justice focused on science fiction narratives in popular culture. Prior to her start at USC, she served as program assistant at Oregon Humanities where she facilitated the design, implementation and evaluation of reflective conversation-based programming across Oregon.
