Description

We are delighted to announce that Dr. Rachel Hopkin will join the staff at the Center for Folklore Studies and the Humanities Institute as our GAH DT Post Doc for 2021-2022.  Rachel received her PhD in the Fall of 2019 from the English Department at OSU, working under the direction of Dr. Amy Shuman. Rachel brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to the position. Having served as Graduate Archivist at CFS, Rachel knows our collections well.  As PostDoc, she will be assisting grassroots community groups in organizing, digitizing and accessioning their records into the CFS archive. She will also be working to make our existing collections more accessible to the general public. We are hopeful that Rachel will be able to use her considerable radio production experience to showcase the archives and the work of the Center for the Folklore Studies. In addition, Rachel will be working closely with Jared Gardner to reactivate the CHIP program, which has provided opportunities for humanities PhDs, including Rachel herself, to learn about careers outside the university setting. If you would like Rachel to provide a presentation to your class about the folklore archives or consult with you about an archives-related project or assignment, please contact her directly at hopkin.7@osu.edu.
