In her dissertation, Boenig-Lipstin investigates the formation of the personal computer and the citizen of the information age in the Soviet Union, France, and the United States in the second half of the 20th c. by following early computer literacy programs–the first national efforts to introduce the general public, and especially children, to computers. In her other projects, she explores contemporary ideas of global governance of technology entrepreneurs and how innovation is perceived as a tool for achieving social welfare. Her goal in all of her academic projects is to contribute to understanding of the complex way in which contemporary human identities and sensibilities and social orders are formed together with the technical and scientific.
