Hannah Star Rogers’ research examines the intersection of science and art and explores the question of how art and science work as categories to circumscribe bodies of knowledge. Rogers holds a PhD from Cornell University in Science and Technology Studies and an MFA from Columbia University. Her monograph, Art, Science, and the Politics of Knowledge, will appear from MIT Press in 2022.

She is the lead editor of the Routledge Handbook of Art, Science, and Technology Studies (2021) which considers the relationship between art and STS, particularly around the emerging field of art-science. Rogers works as a curator for art and science exhibits including  “Emerge: Artists and Scientists Redesign the Future” at Arizona State University, “Shadows and Ashes: The Perils of Nuclear Weapons,” a traveling exhibition from Princeton University at Cornell University, and “Art’s Work in the Age of Biotechnology: Shaping Our Genetic Futures” at North Carolina State University and a subsequent show with all new artists, "Art's Work in the Age of Biotechnology: Critical Methods for Collective Experiments" at the University of Pittsburgh. Her exhibition for the University of Virginia's Fralin Museum of Art co-curated with Worthy Martin (Associate Professor of Computer Science Acting Director, Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities), “Making Science Visible: The Photography of Berenice Abbott,” received an exhibits prize from the British Society for the History of Science and resulted in an invited lecture at the Smithsonian Archives of American Art.

She is the co-founder, with Art Schwarzchild, of the Sense of Place program, a series of January and May term courses which introduce students to STS, writing, and creative practice in the context of biological and environmental field stations. Courses have been held at Mountain Lake Biological Station, UVA's ABCRC at the Eastern Shore, and Highlands Biological Station (in cooperation with Director Jim Costa).
