Alisa is a second year Ph.D. student in the History department at Fordham University, where she studies medieval manuscript culture and medieval pilgrimage. She holds an M.L.S. from the School of Library and Information Science of Indiana University Bloomington, and is particularly interested in information visualization, pedagogy, and the use of social media for scholarship. She is also concerned about the long-term survival of DH projects and the condition of their metadata.
As a trained librarian and a graduate student, I'm in an almost middle-world when it comes to DH -- I want to help people learn the tools and skills and research digital literacy, and I also want to apply DH methodologies to my own work. I am a co-coordinator of the Fordham Graduate Student Digital Humanities Group (http://fordhamgsdh.wordpress.com/) and love interesting new people in DH themes and theories. I also knit, in my free time.
