Responding to the Loss of North Idaho’s Mountain Caribou
Jack Kredell, Chris Lamb w/ Devin Becker
Summer 2020 to present
funded by the CDIL Graduate Student Summer Fellowship Program, Summer 2020
The Lab partnered with the University of Idaho Library’s Center for Digital Inquiry and Learning (CDIL) to support “Storying Extinction,” a digital humanities project spearheaded by graduate students Jack Kredell and Chris Lamb, which officially launched by CDIL on February 1, 2022.
Supported by CDIL’s Graduate Student Fellowships, Kredell and Lamb produced a GIS-based “deep map” consisting of oral histories, trail camera footage, nonfiction essays, and historical documents related to mountain caribou and their 2019 Idaho extirpation.
Kredell, Lamb, and CDIL director Devin Becker will co-author an analysis of the project and its methodology for publication later this year.
