Teaching and PhD Supervision


I have taught across stages (first year through PhD) including classes on information and society, organisation and retrieval of information, research methods, digital libraries, and research data management (part of the MSc in Digital Curation).  I’ve begun supervising MLIS students in service learning projects in 2016-2017 with the Digital Repository of Ireland and in Spring 2017 with the All-Ireland Institute for Hospice and Palliative Care.  If your organization is interested in working with the School to offer service learning projects or even internships, please contact me at kalpana.shankar(at)ucd.ie

PhD Supervision

I am currently supervising or co-supervising three students on topics as diverse as health communication in Oman, design and use of e-readers, and sustainability in digital library projects.

I am currently accepting applications from potential PhD students in the following topics.  If you are interested in PhD supervision, please feel free to contact me:

  • Critical data studies, especially social and cultural intersections with digital data
  • Communication with and about data and data management
  • Open Data
