Broadly conceived, my research agenda is focused on the complex relationship between information resources and daily manifestations of power. This agenda has expressed itself in several collaborative research projects, professional experiences, individual research projects and my dissertation research. My research is grounded in Archival Studies and theoretically informed by my background in Media Studies, Gender Studies and Information Studies. My research is also guided by the principal that socio-historical-cultural context is paramount to the ways in which people understand, access and use information. With this in mind, I employ qualitative and humanistic research methodologies in my research. I am committed to an interdisciplinary research orientation. Below are some of my current and past research projects.
