I'm very glad to introduce to our discussion Judith van der Elst, who is making research on the "cultural heritage" tied to the environment and community aspects.
Judith van der Elst holds a MA in Archaeology, University Leiden (NL) and a Ph.D. in Anthropology (Archaeology) from the University of New Mexico (USA) with a specialization in Geographical Information Sciences. Main interests include spatial and emerging technology applications in the social sciences and humanities (E-Culture), with over 15 years of experience in this field. Her theoretical background is in diversity in spatial thinking and spatial reasoning and developing methodologies for understanding this diversity through cross-modal languages and novel pedagogies. She also has extended work experience in heritage management, among others at the National Park Service, Chaco Culture, National Historical Park USA. She has published her work in industry and academic books and journals, and has collaborated on international heritage projects and conducted participatory projects working with traditional communities, crossing art, science, and technology. New initiatives focus on a biosemiotic approach in art/science collaborations.
Thank you and best,
