Biography:

 

Sara Grossman specializes in the literary and cultural history of climate crisis and weather data in the United States from the early-nineteenth century to the present. She received her PhD in American Studies from Rutgers University in 2016. She is currently working on a book, Measuring the Face of the Sky, which is a cultural history of weather data in the United States. The book charts the evolution of data collection and visualization practices from the 1847 Smithsonian Institution Meteorological Project to NASA’s 2012 GOES-14 satellite. Measuring the Face of the Sky expands understandings of data within the field of the environmental humanities by positioning data as an everyday concept and cultural practice shaped by the people who interface with it. For an updated list of projects and publications, please visit sarajgrossman.com.
