James Wynn is Associate Professor of English and Rhetoric at Carnegie Mellon University. His interest is in the study of rhetoric, science, and mathematics. His first book Evolution by the Numbers (2012) examines how mathematics was argued into the study of variation, evolution, and heredity in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In his most recent scholarship, he has focused on citizen science in the digital age and how it is reshaping the relationships between scientists, lay persons, and governments.
