Elizabeth Losh

Director of the Equality Lab, Professor of English and American Studies

As director of the Equality Lab and professor of English and American Studies, Elizabeth Losh’s research focuses on how digital media and mobile technologies transform traditional institutions and public memory. She collaborates with creative innovators on the cutting edge of the digital humanities, including students, scholars, artists and community organizers. According to Elizabeth, the digital humanities allow us to ask new research questions. “At William & Mary, the liberal arts are going high-tech,” she says. “Our digital humanities projects attract extremely diverse groups of students, bringing their backgrounds and expertise to the work. We’re laying the foundation for William & Mary grads to be lifelong learners in fields that don’t yet exist.”
