MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – Kristina Golubiewski-Davis will join Middlebury’s Digital Liberal Arts Initiative (DLA) starting August 22 for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship. Golubiewski-Davis, who replaces outgoing fellow Alicia Peaker, comes to Middlebury from the University of Minnesota, where she recently completed her PhD in anthropology with a focus on archaeology and 3D scanning of ancient artifacts. She earned her bachelor’s degree in anthropology and classics at the University of Rhode Island and a master’s in anthropology from the University of Minnesota.

As the DLA fellow, Golubiewski-Davis will coordinate workshops and training sessions around digital tools and methods, manage outreach and communications for the DLA, and continue her research using 3D scanning. She will be sharing her expertise with various faculty who may be interested in this technology, including people in anthropology, history of art & architecture, classics, and the College museum.

Middlebury’s DLA initiative was established with initial funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support faculty exploration of digital methods in teaching and scholarship and to assist them in discovering new opportunities for collaboration with fellow scholars. Launched in 2014, the program has resulted in 28 projects to date across a wide range of academic disciplines.

Faculty or staff members who are interested in learning more about opportunities to work with Golubiewski-Davis or the Digital Liberal Arts Initiative should contact DLA Faculty Director Jason Mittell.
