Lisa Rhody is Deputy Director of Digital Initiatives at The Graduate Center, CUNY. She is an administrator, teacher, and researcher whose work has considered the varied and often complicated ways in which emerging digital technologies change the ways we study, present, and teach the humanities and social sciences. Lisa directs the GC Digital Fellowship Programs, which include the GC Digital Fellows, the Program Social Media Fellows, and the Videography Fellows, coordinates the Provost’s Digital Innovation Grants, and holds a faculty appointment in the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies, the M.A. in Digital Humanities, and M.S. in Data Analytics and Data Visualization programs. Her research combines advanced computational methods such as topic modeling and social network analysis with more traditional literary analysis to study 20th and 21st-century American literature, particularly ekphrastic poetry (poems that take the visual arts as their subject) by contemporary women poets.
