Hi, I’m Elizabeth!

I am a Clinical Assistant Professor with the African American Experimental & Digital Humanities Initiative at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities at the University of Maryland, College Park. I am also part of the social media team at Public Narrative and a member of the Immersive Realities Lab.

I was the 2019 Mellon Editorial Fellow at Northwestern University Press. I was also a Season 2 producer with Change Agents the Podcast, profiling Black urban agricultural community organization Grow Greater Englewood. I have written, designed, and built content for print, audio, video, and social media, as well as institutional marketing campaigns, professional e-commerce sites, and all kinds of scholarly projects.

I received my PhD (2021) and MA (2017) in Literatures in English from Cornell University, my BA (2014) in English and Black Studies from Amherst College, and finished a full-stack web development bootcamp at Northwestern University (2020).

I’m currently in the DMV, but deeply rooted in Chicago’s Southside. Definitely drinking herbal tea and playing 90’s R&B at this exact moment.
