Unseen connections: exhibiting the global stories of cellular technology at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History

What can and should anthropology look like in the 21st century within the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History? Thinking through the issues bundled up in these questions, within this talk I will discuss the decade of interdisciplinary research that informs the exhibit - Cellphone: Unseen Connections - about cellular technology and its cultural, ecological and social intersections that I am curating and which opens in June 2023.
