Hello, and welcome to my website! My name is Jason Young, and I am currently a graduate student in the Department of Geography at the University of Washington. My research focuses on the social and political importance of emerging digital technologies. Given this engagement with digital studies, I have become increasingly interested in attempts to make academia more open and experimental through the use of new digital technologies and practices. This website is the result of that interest! I hope to perform my own digital, scholarly experiments on here, as well as to share my own progress through graduate school and academia more broadly. The menu above will take you to sections describing me, my research, my CV, and my blog. So, I invite you to take a look around, and please get in touch if you find anything of interest! Thanks!
