Qual Lab

About the Qual Lab

The Qual Lab was founded in Fall 2014 by Dr. Kathryn Graber, assistant professor of Anthropology and Central Eurasian Studies. As a linguistic and sociocultural anthropologist, Dr. Graber conducts multilingual, media-rich fieldwork in Russia and Mongolia, so the Qual Lab reflects the needs of field-based qualitative researchers, with an emphasis on portability and audio quality. The lab has been generously supported by the College of Arts & Sciencesthe Department of Anthropology, the former Department of Communication and Culture, and the Social Science Research Commons (SSRC), and the IU Research  Research Equipment Fund
