My name is Carrie Andersen and I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Texas at Austin in American Studies. My dissertation will focus on combat drones in the popular imagination, with an emphasis on cultural representation.

My general research interests include the following:

  • war, violence, and anxiety/fear
  • comedy and cultural critique
  • conservative political theory and the history of the Right in America
  • technology and culture
  • game studies
  • post-1945 US culture and history
