Grant Otsuki


My name is Grant Otsuki. I am a lecturer in Cultural Anthropology at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. 

My degrees are in social-cultural anthropology and STS. I conduct anthropological and historical research on Japan. For my dissertation research, I studied university-based labs creating human-machine interfaces in Japan. I also work on the history of cybernetics, technology in popular culture, and postcolonial technoscience.

I dabble in data analysis and visualization using metadata from academic sources. I'm a member of the incoming editorial team for Engaging Science, Technology, and Society. You can find some of my work at

I'll be facilitating the "Wishlist 2070" exercise for the 2020 6S virtual workshop.
