Final reminder: project share at 1pm EST today

16 Dec 2014

This is a brief reminder about our next project share, coming up today (Tuesday December 16th), at 1pm EST, with Kate Hennessy

Kate Hennessy, trained as an anthropologist, worked on the Inuvialuit Living History Museum, a participatory virtual museum exhibit, which explored questions around histories of ownership and provenance. She has contributed to a number of other projects relevant to the work of the DPHE, some of which are described in her bio below, followed by the call-in details. We hope you can join us!

We will focus on the social and technical aspects of the different modes of collaboration required by multiple projects. She will discuss:

  1. The Inuvialuit Smithsonian project and how the platform reflected identified needs, especially connecting ethnographic and natural history collections.
  2. A new collaboration with the Scowlitz First Nation in the Fraser Valley to produce a Virtual Museum of Canada project. Working with Kim Christen and Jane Anderson, Kate will be using Traditional Knowledge labels for the site. This project connects nicely to how we have been thinking in the DPHE about metadata and information sharing. Both the Inuvialuit and Scowlitz projects use the Reciprocal Research Network as a collaboration platform and tool for curation of related collections.
  3. The Ethnographic Terminalia project.

Bio: As the director of the Making Culture Lab, my research explores the role of digital technology in the documentation and safeguarding of cultural heritage, and the mediation of culture, history, objects, and subjects in new forms. My video and multimedia works investigate documentary methodologies to address indigenous and settler histories of place and space. As assistant editor of the journal Visual Anthropology Review, I designed its first multimedia volume (2003). My work has been published in journals such as American Indian Quarterly, Museum Anthropology Review, and Visual Anthropology Review. I was a Trudeau Foundation Scholar from 2006-2010, a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Graduate Scholar from 2005-2009, a Canadian Polar Commission Scholar in 2006-2007, and a Commonwealth Scholar in 2001-2002. I am a co-founder of the Ethnographic Terminalia Curatorial Collective, which curates exhibitions at the intersection of ethnography and contemporary art each year in parallel with the annual meetings of the American Anthropological Association.
