Celeste Tường Vy Sharpe
Celeste Tường Vy Sharpe is the Academic Technologist for Instructional Technology at Carleton College, where she works on digital projects with faculty and staff across campus that infuse technology into the curriculum. She received her PhD in History from George Mason University for her born-digital dissertation project titled “They Need You! Disability, Visual Culture, and the Poster Child, 1945-1980.” In it she argues that the NFIP/MOD and MDA’s poster child campaigns increased the visibility and understanding of physical disability in new ways by depicting disabled American children within their families and communities as full, if physically limited, citizens of the nation. She has taught and published on a range of topics including: culturally sensitive digital representations of temporality; design anthropology, critical theory, and inclusive technologies; hybrid asynchronous online learning and iterative web-writing, and public history and education programs.
