Lauren F. Klein

Winship Distinguished Research Professor and Associate Professor, Departments of English and Quantitative Theory and Methods, Emory University

Director, Digital Humanities Lab

Dr. Klein is the Winship Distinguished Research Professor and Associate Professor in the Departments of English and Quantitative Theory and Methods at Emory University, where I also direct the Digital Humanities Lab. Before arriving at Emory, she taught in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication at Georgia Tech. She received her PhD in English and American Studies from the CUNY Graduate Center, and my AB in Literature (English and French) from Harvard University. In 2017, she was named one of the “rising stars in digital humanities” from Inside Higher Ed.

She is the author of two books. The first, Data Feminism (MIT Press), co-authored with Catherine D’Ignazio, is a trade book that explores the intersection of feminist thinking and data science. The second, An Archive of Taste: Race and Eating in the Early United States (University of Minnesota Press), shows how thinking about eating can help to tell new stories about the range of people, from the nation’s first presidents to their enslaved chefs, who worked to establish a cultural foundation for the United States. With Matthew K. Gold, she edits Debates in the Digital Humanities (University of Minnesota Press), a hybrid print/digital publication stream that explores debates in the field as they emerge. The most recent book in this series is Debates in the Digital Humanities 2019.

Our Mission

The Institute aims to accelerate research in data science, serving as a nucleating effort to catalyze interdisciplinary research collaborations across fields impacting our society.
