Gaymon Bennett is associate professor of religion, science, and technology at Arizona State University and co-leader of ASU’s initiative on humane technology. He is an anthropologist and pioneer in collaborative approaches to the impact of new technologies. Gaymon was a founding co-designer of the first federally funded initiative in embedded ethics for biotechnology, the Human Practices experiment at the Synthetic Biology Engineering Research Center; Human Practices lead at the Stanford-Berkeley BIOFAB; and co-founder of the Center for Biological Futures at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. He is currently working on an ethnography of “soul work” among technologists, a project which explores the growing tech backlash and its meaning for technologists’ sense of where they’ve come from and where they’re going. That work includes a documentary, “Valley of the Shadow,” a film that captures innovators’ stories of regret and hope at a turning point in the history of technology. Gaymon’s books include Technicians of Human Dignity: Bodies, Souls, and the Making of Intrinsic Worth and Designing Human Practices: An Experiment with Synthetic Biology (with P. Rabinow). He holds PhDs in anthropology from UC Berkeley and theology from the Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley.
