About Diana Daly

Research, Teaching, and Leadership Emphases

 

I am an Assistant Professor in the University of Arizona in the School of Information focused on engagement for students and communities in the past, present, and future mediated through digital technology. In my scholarship and teaching I draw from and build on an interdisciplinary fund of knowledge including archival studies, digital culture, performance studies, and digital humanities.

In my work as an audio producer I present sincere, humanistic stories about science and southwest borderlands culture. In my dissertation work, through qualitative inquiry and community engagement in person and online I focused on community performances in Tucson, Arizona as records of knowledge and memory.

In my teaching work for the eSociety program and as a guest instructor abroad I specialize in online collaboration and digital storytelling tools, social media, negotiations around copyright/Fair Use, virtual ethnography, online interviews, and digital archival research.

As Director of Individual Studies, I supervise undergraduate senior capstone projects and honors theses in our Information Science, Technology, and the Arts program, and I coordinate and build partnerships to support undergraduate and graduate internships.
