We are excited to welcome Karl-Mary Akre as the new IMATS Assistant! Karl-Mary has been a student worker & post-baccalaureate fellow at IMATS, and graduated from Barnard in 2016. You might recognize her from some of the IMATS videos (including the first ever IMATS home video and the Butler stacks video currently featured on the library homepage). Most recently Karl-Mary was a creative assistant at Viacom. In her spare time, Karl-Mary enjoys reading Zadie Smith, hitting up exhibits at the Schomburg Center or The Whitney Museum, and playing guitar.
She will work closely with Abby and the IMATS student workers to keep our thriving equipment room and video recording services running smoothly, as well as support courses and faculty projects. We'll be orienting her to BLAIS over the coming weeks.
