- What is your relationship to anthropological records?
- What kind of data do you use, produce, or oversee? How would you define research data in your field?
- How are research data used and how do you anticipate them reused in the next 50 years? Who are the primary and emergent users of your research data?
- Given your experience and the pre-circulated articles, what is changing (in research data production, use, preservation, ethics)? How do you see the creation of anthropological/ethnographic records and their use shifting in the digital age?
