Jan 10 - Overview & Intro

We welcome you back to the Research Colloquium, for the Spring semester!

This week's Colloquium will cover the overview of the semester's schedule, make introductions, and provide an opportunity to generate feedback about your thoughts on the Colloquium. We are taking your input, and how we can make the Colloquium as helpful (and inspirational!) for the cohort as possible. 

Associate Professor Kate Hennessy will be leading this semester's Research Colloquium, and Denise Quesnel will be continuing to assist. 

Kate Hennessy

Associate Professor


Kate Hennessy is a cultural anthropologist with a PhD from the University of British Columbia and an MA in the Anthropology of Media from the University of London, School of Oriental and African Studies. As the director of the Making Culture Lab, her 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. Her 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, she designed its first multimedia volume (2003). She serves on boards of directors for the Museum of Vancouver, the American Anthropological Association's Society for Visual Anthropology, and the Access to Media Education Society (AMES). She is a co-founder of the Ethnographic Terminalia curatorial collective, which explores the border-zones between ethnography and artistic practice.
