Jane is a journalist, broadcaster, and recovering archaeologist. She works as a digital media tutor for the Digital Skills Academy in Dublin’s Digital Hub. She is a contributor to RTE Radio 1’s arts show, Arena. She can usually be found doing at least two of the following: TV research and development, making radio documentaries, feature writing, climbing something she shouldn’t, and tricking people into overlong Situationist walks.
Before her current life as someone who clicks “other” on dropdown menus, she spent more than plenty of years in archaeology, specialising in medieval architecture and early mapmaking, and running archaeology workshops in local schools. She likes anything to do with the social meaning of material culture, whether that’s interpreting something centuries old, or collaborating with creative people to produce something new– she’s especially interested in combining the two.
