About the event
Please join us for the 2019 CDSC Summer Fellows Showcase
For the fourth year, the CDSC sponsored three fellowship projects at the WSU Pullman campus. The six-week summer fellowships offer faculty and graduate students planning assistance along with technical training for projects that use digital tools, technologies, or platforms to develop research and teaching agendas. The 2019 Summer Fellows were selected from a competitive pool of applicants to pursue projects that develop digital pedagogy and online teaching resources. We will showcase their work with a public presentation of their research. Light refreshments will be served.
Molly Carney is a PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology. Broadly, she is an environmental archaeologist, with research interests in human experiences within both natural and built environments and past human-plant relationships. Her fellowship project created an online digital ethnobotanical database which documents some of the root and bulb foods that were and continue to be used by Columbia Plateau cultural groups. She plans on making this database a career project, and continuing to update and document the website with information on both traditional and contemporary ethnobotanical knowledge.
