I created two complimentary WordPress themes for CASTAC: the CASTAC website and Platypus, the CASTAC Blog. I also created the CASTAC brand, including the platypus logomark, that is used across the organization’s web presence. I have also developed custom WordPress plugins for CASTAC, including a roles and permissions manager for the Blog and an upcoming project for a membership profile and directory system. As the CASTAC web producer, I also provide ongoing support and development for CASTAC’s web presence and projects.
CASTAC’s mission is to facilitate communication within the AAA among anthropologists working in areas related to science, technology and computing, and to promote the visibility of anthropological research on technoscience. CASTAC offers a forum in which to organize sessions for meetings, exchange ideas and network with anthropologists who have similar research interests.
