Liz Milewicz, Ph.D.
Head, Digital Scholarship Services
I advise and lead initiatives and services that encourage the creation, use, and dissemination of scholarly materials in a range of media. My department, which includes many graduate students, collaborates with researchers in the humanities and interpretive social sciences, at any level of study, to plan and build digital research projects. We encourage learning and experimentation in digital scholarship through exploratory projects, programs of hands-on instruction, graduate student internships, and resources and programming in The Edge / Murthy Digital Studio.
Before coming to Duke, I managed two NEH-funded digital humanities projects at Emory University (The Expanded Online Transatlantic Slave Trade Database, http://slavevoyages.org; and African Origins, http://african-origins.org) and worked with the Emory Libraries on a range of digital library initiatives. I earned my doctorate from Emory, where I studied cultural and linguistic anthropology, organizational sociology, and histories of libraries and reading. My masters degrees came from the University of Alabama, where I earned an MS in Library and Information Science and an MA in English.
