James Sumner has broad interests across the history of technology and is Associate Director of the UK National Archive for the History of Computing (NAHC) at the University of Manchester. He has published on the role of the computer as icon in Britain's post-war technological trajectory, and on competing approaches to compatibility in early personal computing. He has supervised PhD research on the social history of the 1980s microcomputer boom and on the labor history of computing in the banking sector, both in British context. He is currently developing a project on how computing concepts were promoted to, and received by, non-expert audiences from the 1940s to 80s.
