Simmons SLIS welcomes new faculty member, Janet Ceja

 

Simmons College School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) (USA) is thrilled to welcome new assistant professor Janet Ceja, joining the faculty this Fall 2015 semester.
Janet Ceja researches in the fields of moving image preservation, archival pedagogy, and cultural archives, specifically Latino and Indigenous cultural communities. Her most recent work examines how amateur videos interplay with community identity, memory, and acts of devotional labor to preserve a religious fiesta in rural Mexico.
She received her Ph.D. in Library and Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh, where she was a member of the American Library Association’s first cohort of Spectrum Doctoral Fellows. She earned a BA in film studies from UC, Santa Barbara and an MA in film and media preservation from the University of Rochester; she is also a graduate of the L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation at the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY. Before joining the faculty at Simmons College, she taught at the University of Arizona’s School of Information.
