Jesse Adams Stein is a UTS Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building, UTS. She is a design researcher specialising in the relationship between technology, craft and work, in both historical and contemporary contexts. Stein's current research uses ethnographic and oral history methods to investigate how emerging manufacturing technologies and digital design practices (and the economic structures that drive them) are transforming the social relations of Australian manufacturing. Her oral histories with manufacturing workers are collected in the National Library of Australia, and have been the subject of a 2SER HistoryLab podcast, "Invisible Hands". Stein's 2016 monograph, Hot Metal: Material Culture and Tangible Labour, is published by Manchester University Press.
