James Adams is a PhD candidate in Anthropology at the University of California Irvine. He received his BA in Anthropology from the University of North Texas in 2012. James’ dissertation research examines the ways different thought collectives are producing and mobilizing data to justify and guide a shift away from fossil fuel sources of electricity in Austin, Texas. He is especially interested in drawing out the many kinds of systems and scales of activity involved in “energy transition,” highlighting the importance of data and evidentiary practices in this type of sociotechnical change. James has an emphasis in Law, Society, and Culture and a specialization in Anthropologies of Medicine, Science, and Technology.
