swampinWelcome to my web site. My name is Elizabeth Swanstrom, but everybody calls me Lisa. For the past six years I have been an Assistant Professor of English at Florida Atlantic University. In July 2016 I will join the English Department at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. My research and teaching interests include science fiction, natural history, media theory, and the digital humanities. Before joining the English Department at FAU, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at Umeå University’s HUMlab in northern Sweden (2010), as well as the Florence Levy Kay Fellow in the Digital Humanities in the English Department at Brandeis University in Massachusetts (2008-2009). I completed my Ph.D. in Comparative Literature in June 2008 at the University of California, Santa Barbara. In my free time, I like to hike-slosh through Florida’s beautiful swamps with my husband Scott.
