Scout Calvert was born in Arizona; grew up on a cattle ranch; briefly pursued a career in photography; and earned a master’s degree in Information Resources and Library Science at the University of Arizona. She earned a PhD in History of Consciousness, studying under Donna Haraway, Geoffrey Bowker, and other dedicated faculty across disciplines, and specialized in feminist theory and science and technology studies. Scout studies old and new technologies and media, recreational genomics, the cultures of genealogists and family historians, new family configurations in an age of assisted reproductive technologies, and the pure-breeding of domestic livestock. Her current research focuses on the production of particular kinds of American identities through the use of recreational genomics and genealogical databases, and how databases and pedigrees turn into meat.
