Dr. Timothy J. Pasch (Ph.D., Communication, University of Washington 2008) is Associate Professor of Communication at the University of North Dakota. Pasch is a dual US/Canadian citizen and is fluent in French and Japanese, with some Inuktitut language ability. He lived with an Inuit family in Inukjuaq, Nunavik (Arctic Québec) for his dissertation research and recently returned from Arviat, in the Kivalliq Region of Nunavut, where he assisted the community in various digital research initiatives. His research interests focus on issues of cyberculture and humanities informatics especially as they apply to questions of identity in the Circumpolar Arctic and interstitial borderlands. Pasch leverages and integrates digital humanities convergence technologies, crowdsourced media creation, and social network analysis for the purposes of linguistic and cultural preservation built on human-dimension cyberinfrastructure.
