Jake Dunagan’s research examines the role of emerging technologies in transforming identity, culture, and governance. His most recent research has focused on the social, legal and political implications of neuroscience, exploring many aspects of life in the neurocentric age. His other specializations include: the future of justice and the courts, alternative energy, and social media. He also has been leading explorations into new methods for public communication of foresight, including experiential futures, digital stories, immersive scenarios and ethical spectacles. Dunagan’s master's thesis, “Alternatives in Anthropological Communication: Ethnographic Surrealism and Fake Documentary,” examined cultural representation and the role of media conventions in the construction of truth.
