Do you DIY? Come take the survey!

Henriette Roued-Cunliffe

My name is Henriette Roued-Cunliffe and I am a Digital Humanities researcher with a passion for Do-It-Yourself Culture (see Research). I am an active member of DIY culture through my (too) many DIY activities (designing knitting patterns, spinning, gardening and much more – visit Eddie’s Room).

I have a background in the Cultural Heritage sector (LinkedIn) and am particularly interested in the relationship between DIY Culture and Cultural Institutions (Museums, Libraries and Archives).

As an assistant professor at the Royal School of Library and Information Science, University of Copenhagen, I teach students how to work with reuse of heritage data among other things.
