Andrea Lieber

Real name: 
Dickinson College
Bio Statement: 
I am a Jewish studies professor, with a disciplinary background in religious studies. I regularly teach a course at my institution called "Religion & the Internet". I am the author of "Domesticity and the Home Page: Blogging and the Blurring of Public and Private among Orthodox Jewish Women" which appeared in Simon Bronner, ed., _Jews at Home: Domestication of Identity_ (Jewish Cultural Studies 2, Littman 2009). I am currently co-editing a volume in the same series called "Connected Jews" which gathers essays that address the many ways throughout history that diasporic Jewish communities have forged connections. I am also contributing an essay to the MacMillan Interdisciplinary Handbook on Gender that explores the way affective and imagined communities take shape through the digital public. Although my training is in the study of late ancient Judaism, my recent teaching interests have led me to to become involved with many projects dealing with new media, including a Mellon funded initiative in Digital Humanities at Dickinson College.
