MA Student, Simon Fraser University
Sarah joined IPinCH as an MA student in the Department of Archaeology at Simon Fraser University in 2014. She has experience in cultural resource management in San Francisco, and worked at the Center for Digital Archaeology at UC Berkeley. Her work in digital media and preservation includes projects for the Presidio of San Francisco, the University of Western Australia, and Mukurtu CMS. Based on this experience she is interested in methods for digital dissemination and discourse that respect traditional knowledge and its usage.
Her MA research is on the use of content management systems by indigenous communities to curate, share, and protect traditional heritage in digital spaces. By working to understand the processes in which heritage can be digitized and managed without compromising cultural context, she aims to promote better practices towards the treatment of heritage on the Internet, and better working spaces for digital collaboration.
