Nickoal Eichmann-Kalwara

Assistant Professor, Digital Scholarship Librarian at Center for Research Data & Digital Scholarship and University Libraries University of Colorado Boulder

In terms of librarianship, I’m interested in digital scholarship, especially digital humanities (DH), altmetrics, and open access. As a historian, my background is in early modern European and Atlantic history, but I lean toward intersections of crime, medicine, and religion. My current research projects include 1) a longitudinal analysis of DH conferences with Scott B. Weingart since 2013, 2) a public digital humanities website dedicated to oral histories of the Civil Rights movement in Starkville, Mississippi since 2015, and 3) the role of Death Positivity in DH project sunsetting (2020). My teaching has heavily influences my research since 2018, and I’m increasingly exploring and interrogating critical and empathetic pedagogies that center historical recovery and archival justice as DH fluencies.
