Waiting for Seoul: Gabriela Andaur, New Professional 2016-2017

ICA New Professionals | 15 August 2016

Waiting for Seoul, III

This week meet Gabriela Andaur, from Chile :

In 2013 I received a Master degree in Archival Studies from the University of British Columbia.

While I was a student, I worked as a Graduate Research Assistant in the Records in the Cloud and InterPARES Trust Projects, in which I explored the legal implications of the creation and management of digital records on the internet.

Currently, I work at Universidad Alberto Hurtado in Santiago, Chile, where I teach courses on archival theory and practice.

Also, I am a research collaborator of the Latin America Team of InterPARES Trust, were I am studying the legal environment for Open Government in Latin America. Since my return to my home country, I have also been working as a consultant and doing research on community and public archives.

I want to attend the ICA Congress because I think it will be an excellent opportunity to learn about the most recent developments in our field and learn how others are facing the current challenges of our profession.

During this Congress, I expect to connect with our colleagues and explore collaboration opportunities in order to create awareness about archival issues, promote best practices and advance research in our local communities and beyond.
