A few quick updates before a sunny weekend:
iSchoolers in the News
Professor Michelle Martin is quoted in this San Diego Union-Tribune story on Dr. Seuss’s complicated racial history. “Fortunately, some authors grow and figure out that maybe some of the things they wrote early on were harmful and they try to make amends. Seuss did that,” she told the newspaper.
iSchool Lecturer Annie Searle was quoted in this UW Daily column on ways to look out for your privacy online. She offers several suggestions for “designing your own privacy.”
Work by TASCHA researchers Maria Garrido and Lucas Koepke was cited in Nature, in an article on transformations happening across the modern workplace.
Recent Informatics graduate Christy Pham had to deal with conflicting emotions over being a first-generation college student. Pham talked about her experience and how the iSchool helped support her.
