Daniel Akselrad


Daniel is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Communication. His research uses historical and ethnographic methods to examine how media affect the sensemaking of individuals inside expansive bureaucratic institutions, information systems, and military infrastructures. Daniel’s work on the fellowship concerns the ethics of eponymy and memorialization in industry and education – the ways our institutions often relate to history by seeing and unseeing, by choosing to remember and forget aspects of their origins and impacts.
