Hi, I’m Melanie Walsh, and I’m a Postdoctoral Associate in Information Science at Cornell University. I’m designing and teaching an undergraduate course that prepares students in the humanities to analyze cultural materials (books, movies, social media posts, etc.) with digital and computational tools. I received my PhD in English & American Literature from Washington University in St. Louis.

My research interests include digital humanities, cultural analytics, American literature, and social media—preferably all of the above combined. 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 shoot me an email at melanie dot walsh at cornell dot edu.
