Rolf Straubhaar is an educational anthropologist who primarily works with Latino/a students in the U.S. and with adult educators in Brazil and lusophone Africa. His research focuses on how educational ideas spread internationally and are then adapted locally.
I'm a technoarchaeologist, a type of anthropologist who researches new technologies in other "sectors" that focus on non-destructive/invasive, and non-contact solutions to challenges facing people. I explore resources that increase digital preservation, representation, interpretation, and connection
