Dr. Wagner’s primary research and teaching interests include critical information studies, queer archives, and LGBTQIA+ advocacy in sociotechnical systems. Their research examines how these communities produce and create identity in opposition to sociotechnical systems that limit and essentialize those identities. Additionally, Wagner works with various community organizations to build and maintain digital collections reflective of complex, often silenced, histories, and to explore archival pedagogy through service-learning classes that have worked with feminist activist organizations, queer media archives, and community arthouse theaters. Multiple projects within classrooms and community work have led to Dr. Wagner exploring and publishing the unique relationships between obsolete archival mediums and queer counter-historical work across archival contexts. Their recent publications include articles in the Journal of Information Science, Artifact & Apparatus, and the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association. They are also the co-creator of the Queer Cola Oral History and Digital Archive.
