5 minutes with Christina Dunbar-Hester
For much of her academic career, Christina Dunbar-Hester has explored how ideas of diversity and identity manifest themselves in technological fields. Rather than larger firms, she has been particularly drawn to smaller communities and subcultures in tech. Her first book, Low Power to the People: Pirates, Protest and Politics in FM Radio Activism, examines how activists helped convince the federal government to grant more broadcast licenses to small community radio stations.
