Full Bio: 

As the Director of the Center for Digital Liberal Arts at Occidental College, Daniel Chamberlain teaches courses on emergent media and leads efforts to advance digital scholarship across disciplines at the College. In addition to his own teaching and research, Daniel works with faculty to explore new ways of teaching with media technologies in and out of the classroom, to consider how their research and publication strategies might benefit from networked collaboration and open access platforms, and to partner with colleagues and projects at other institutions. Prior to directing the center, Daniel held a Council on Library and Information Resources Postdoctoral Fellowship focused on transformational issues related to the Digital Humanities and Digital Scholarship. These efforts are an extension of work Daniel began as a doctoral student at the University of Southern California, where he participated in the launch of USC’s Center for Transformative Scholarship and served as a HASTAC scholar dedicated to making connections between local and global technology research efforts. Daniel’s research on emergent media technologies and new urban spaces explores the correspondences between these phenomena at the level of their cultural and economic emphases on personalization, mobility, and interactivity. Daniel has contributed chapters to the Flow Anthology from Routledge and the Television as Digital Media collection from Duke, and completed a dissertation entitled Emergent Media Technologies and the Production of New Urban Spaces. Daniel holds a Ph.D. and M.A. in Critical Studies from the University of Southern California and a B.A. in Economics from the University of Michigan
