As a species, we are producing information at a massive rate.

Senior Lecturer, University of Manchester
Jerome de Groot is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester's School of Arts, Languages and Cultures. He has three main areas of interest: literature and culture of the civil war period; contemporary popular history; and the historical novel. He is also currently AHRC Leadership Fellow for the project 'Double-Helix History', which looks at how historical awareness is impacted by genetic science, investigating the complicated intersection of genetics and popular narratives of the self and the past. How is this science represented and understood? How is it visualised? What does this mean for privacy, and the projection of the self online?
