Andrew Lison (Ph.D. Modern Culture & Media, Brown University, 2016) is the Hall Center for the Humanities' inaugural Postdoctoral Researcher in the Digital Humanities. He will be in residence at the Hall Center for two years, where he will work on a substantial research project, assist the faculty co-directors of the Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities with workshops and teaching, and act to increase the profile of digital humanities scholarship at the university.
His work spans the practical and the theoretical, the humanistic and the technological, connecting issues in the fields of critical digital humanities, science and technology studies, film studies, sound studies, cultural studies, and critical theory to focus on the way in which the digital has, over the past seventy years, progressively come to absorb previously distinct forms of media.
