About Sarah D Calhoun

In Gould Library at Carleton College, I am the liaison to multiple departments, including History, Women & Gender Studies, European Studies, and Philosophy. I also help to supervise the Digital Humanities Associates and work closely with many other groups around campus and at St. Olaf to help support digital scholarship work. The thing that most excites me about digital scholarship is its potential for improving accessibility of scholarship, both in terms of reaching scholars with disabilities but also helping to cross language and writing system barriers.

During my graduate studies I specialized in Theravada Buddhism in Sri Lanka and Thailand, having become interested in it as an undergraduate majoring in Religious Studies at Carleton College. I have studied many languages, including Hindi, Pali, Sanskrit, Sinhala, Thai, French, and Russian.
