I am the Associate University Librarian of Digital Scholarship and Technology Services at Washington University in St. Louis. My research interests include digital pedagogy, use and users of digital humanities resources, humanities data curation, and digital publishing.
I’m the author of The Disappearing Christ: Secularism in the Silent Era (Columbia University Press, 2019), and TV editor at the Los Angeles Review of Books. I previously taught in the Film and Media Arts Program at Louisiana State University, and I now teach in English and American Culture Studies at Washington University in St Louis.
Melanie Walsh is a Postdoctoral Associate in Information Science at Cornell University, where she works with David Mimno’s group.

She designed an undergraduate course and online textbook, Introduction to Cultural Analytics & Python, which prepares students to analyze cultural materials—such as books, movies, historical records, and social media posts—with digital and computational tools.
