I am currently working toward my Ph.D. in the Program in the Built Environment at the University of Washington. My research interests include the politics of public space, political philosophy with a spatial flavor, digital media ethics and methods for scholarly research, and street-level insurgent actions and (re)appropriations of space. I received a Master of Library and Information Science from the UW’s Information School, where my thesis research consisted of an ethnographic study of the information behaviors and cultural identity of Seattle’s Polish community. I have worked at the UW Library’s Special Collections division processing and researching archival photograph collections as well as in the Digital Initiatives unit investigating the possibilities of digital librarianship. My writings also address trans/gender/queer issues and digital humanities, libraries, and archives.
