Hi, I’m Melanie Walsh, and I’m a Postdoctoral Associate in Information Science at Cornell University. I received my PhD in English & American Literature from Washington University in St. Louis. My research interests include digital humanities, cultural analytics, social media, and American literature & culture—preferably all of the above combined.

At Cornell, I’m designing and teaching an undergraduate course that prepares students in the humanities to analyze cultural materials—such as books, movies, historical records, and social media posts—with digital and computational tools. The course includes an introduction to the programming language Python.

You can check out my CV, teaching, digital projects, infrequent blog thoughts, or manuscript-in-progress. If you’d like to reach me, you can email me here: melanie dot walsh at cornell dot edu.
