Marisa Parham (PI) is Professor of English at Amherst College, and also directs the Five College Digital Humanities Initiative, which is a Mellon-funded grant initiative serving Amherst, Hampshire, Mt. Holyoke, and Smith Colleges, and the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Its purpose is to help artists and scholars to integrate technology into humanities scholarship and creative work, and also to bring those disciplines to influence technological growth and spread. Her current teaching and research projects focus on texts that problematize assumptions about virtuality and embodiment, particularly as such terms share a history of increasing complexity in texts produced by African Americans.
