Dr. Christen won the 2018 Creative Activity, Research and Scholarship Award from the WSU Office of Research. They noted in their press release that:
Christen has generated more than $4 million in external funding, including WSU’s first ever institutional grant from the Mellon Foundation. She has leveraged this support to create and sustain truly interdisciplinary projects and workspaces, most prominently establishing in conjunction with WSU Libraries the new Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation (CDSC). She directs several digital humanities projects, including the Plateau Peoples’ Web Portal, a collaboratively curated site of Plateau cultural materials; Mukurtu CMS, a free and open source content management system and community digital archive aimed at the unique needs of indigenous communities; and the Sustainable Heritage Network, an online community of people dedicated to making the preservation and digitization of cultural heritage materials sustainable, simple and secure.
