[Series] TMI #5 – Dr. Ethan Watrall on the Cultural Heritage Informatics Fieldschool

01/03/2011 § 6 Comments

For this episode of HackLibSchool TMI (Two Minute Insight) I had the pleasure of chatting with Dr. Ethan Watrall from Michigan State University. Dr. Watrall is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology and Associate Director of Matrix:The Center for Humane Arts, Letters & Social Sciences Online at Michigan State University.  In addition, he is Coordinator of the Cultural Heritage Informatics Initiative and co-director of the Scholarly Creativity research cluster of the Michigan State University Creativity Initiative.

Dr. Watrall and I chatted for several minutes over the 2 minute limit, so what you’ll hear here is a trimmed down version of our interview. [If you'd like to hear the whole interview email me].

The CHI Fieldschool is, in my opinion, one of the coolest new initiatives that students interested in cultural heritage can take advantage of to get hands on experience “building as a way of knowing,” a popular mantra in Digital Humanities circles. If you or your classmates have any interest in cultural heritage, tech-based projects with humanities roots, or just want to be part of the inaugural class of a great new project, I highly encourage you to apply.
