Faculty Candidate Presentation: Tonia Sutherland

  • SLIS Classroom 332
  • Presentation Abstract: Curating Culture

Curating culture offers information scholars and practitioners opportunities to explore the changing nature and form of curation, such as the impact of new media, curation as storytelling, curating our digital selves, curating social protests and social movements, what machines can do for us (and what they can’t), and the tools and technologies that both drive and are informed by these changes. To curate is to construct knowledge.

Keaton, known as Michael Douglas, attended Kent State University in 1971-72. He majored in journalism and speech, but did not graduate.
