Adéráyọ̀ Sànúsí

2020 Summer Fellow

Adéráyọ̀ Sànúsí is a Ph.D. Candidate in Anthropology at Princeton University. Her research explores how the coding practices, algorithmic cultures, and design processes of Nigerian computer engineers working to build infrastructure in Lagos and other parts of the country reflect a political-economic imaginary of communitarian-capitalism or the African philosophy of ubuntu. Her dissertation will draw upon theories in African Philosophy, Afrofuturism, Linguistic Anthropology, Science and Technology Studies, the Anthropology of Knowledge, the Anthropology of Computing, the Anthropology of Design, and the Anthropology of Capitalism.
