Sharday Mosurinjohn

Sharday Mosurinjohn is Assistant Professor in the School of Religion at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario. Her research concerns esoteric and occult aesthetics, as well as phenomenological and ontological questions with respect to new media and technology, including artificial intelligence. She is currently embarking on a Tri-Agency-funded study of existential, social, and political concerns involved in an AI diagnostic tool called the “digital cancer twin.” Her forthcoming book with McGill-Queen’s University Press is about boredom, heuristically framed in terms of “spiritual crisis,” in the age of information overload.
