Louise Romain is the student assistant of the Techno-Anthropology research group. She has been in charge of updating the homepages of the TANT Lab and of TANT, as well as organizing community events, such as the tool lunches. With her skills in photography, filming and video-editing, she has been engaged in disseminating work being done at the lab, the activities of the researchers as well as external guests. She did a serie of mini-interviews and short videos on different data sprints (all video can be watched on our vimeo account).
Louise is in her second year at the MSc in Techno-Anthropology. She aspires to gain knowledge on current global challenges faced by humanity, and on the diversity of human and non-human cultures. She is particularly passionate about how to bridge academic research with socio-political action, through artistic and technological means. She strives to apply my knowledge in settings where interdisciplinarity, ethical values and privileges are reflected upon, engaging in different cultural contexts.
Since 2016, she has been working on Circle of Voices, a research project in digital anthropology centered on the cultural revitalization of young First Nations in Quebec.
