Cate’s lifelong passion for history has taken her from archaeological field digs in Kastro Kallithea (Greece) and Roccagloriosa (Italy) to the digital realms of online archives. Her doctoral research focuses on the incorporation of digital technology into museums as a tool for anti-colonialism and integrating intersectionality. When she is not studying cultural heritage, digital humanities, or information ethics, Cate can be found swing dancing, making memes, or watching long video essays on YouTube.
