Caitlin Christian-Lamb joins the SLIS faculty as an Assistant Professor of Professional Practice. She is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Maryland. Her dissertation research is on social and reparative justice initiatives in academic archival settings, particularly in terms of gaps between published theory and practice, universities as racialized organizations, and the role of the individual archivist within a larger organization. Ms. Christian-Lamb has held positions as an instructor of record at the University of Maryland's College of Information Studies, as the Digital Archivist of Davidson College, a Project Producer for the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, and as a Research Associate on the Massachusetts Historical Society’s Adams Papers Editorial Project. She holds a MLIS focusing in archival management and a MA in history from Simmons College (now Simmons University), and a BA in history from Purchase College, State University of New York.
Tyler Viso joins the SLIS staff as an academic coordinator. He graduated from LSU in May 2022 with a degree in mass communications. During his program, he worked as a sports director at KLSU where he got the opportunity to talk sports on the radio. Mr. Viso will serve as the primary point of contact for all SLIS students as a student services specialist. Additionally, he will assist the School with communications and marketing, and serve as the School’s representative on the CHSE Communicators Committee.
