Documenting DH: Dorothea Salo

Written by Heather Wacha

Documenting DH is a project from the Digital Humanities Research Network (DHRN). It consists of a series of audio interviews with various humanities scholars and students around the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Each interviewee is given a chance to talk about how they view data, work with data, manage data, or teach data to others. Most recently, we interviewed Dorothea Salo, a faculty associate in the iSchool at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She is also the founder and director of RADD (Recovering Analog and Digital Data). Her commitment to the preservation of data has created a career in which she has been instrumental to the digital community at the University of Wisconsin. Her interview is now accessible on the DHRN website.
