Season 2 of The Planchet podcast kicks off with a wide-ranging conversation with Dr. Irene Soto Marín, Assistant Curator of Numismatics at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology and Assistant Professor of Classical Studies at the University of Michigan. We discuss her work at the Kelsey with its rich collections of ancient coins and papyri (and related archaeological documentation), Linked Open Data (LOD), the value of the ANS’s Eric P. Newman Graduate Seminar in Numismatics, and advice to early career researchers (ECRs) on building a professional network and tips for time-management.The Planchet
The episode runs approximately 45 minutes and provides some excellent insights both into her curation work as well as insights into researching.
