Preserving our Cultural Heritage: Creating Digital Archives through Collection, Collaboration, and Curation


The Digital Humanities Lab, Herter Hall 19G

Kristine Hanna's work focuses on developing collaborative and long lasting relationships with partners to further the mission of the Internet Archive. She works with institutions and foundations to fund and implement existing and/or new projects and programs; including Archive-It, a web archiving service first deployed in 2006 and currently used by over 150 institutions in 44 states.

She is particularly passionate about saving "at risk" collections and content. Kristine has been working on the internet since 1997 when she co-founded GirlGeeks, a career site for women in technology, which was flipped to a non profit in 2002. Before joining the Archive in January of 2006, she held senior level and management positions in online content and business development in media and educational internet companies. Before founding GirlGeeks, Kristine worked extensively in film and television at Lucasfilm, (Colossal) Pictures, and Lorimar/Warner Brothers; and attended USC's School of Cinema and Television. She has earned two team Emmy Awards, as well as two individual Emmy nominations as the Visual Effects Producer on "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles".

If you would like to attend, please RSVP to by March 28th.
