Hello! I’m Emma Stamm. Welcome to my website.
I’m an instructor in the Department of History at Virginia Tech and a scholar of the Critical Digital Humanities. I received my Ph.D. from Virginia Tech’s ASPECT program, which supports interdisciplinary research in the humanities and social sciences. In my dissertation, Hallucinating Facts: Psychedelic Science and the Epistemic Power of Data, I explore the cultural contexts and epistemology of data science through the lens of psychedelic drug research. Currently, I’m developing a book manuscript based on my dissertation and embarking on new research.
I’m also a freelance writer and editor. For select publications and writing samples, see this page. In my free time, I write fiction, build websites, and play music.
I like hearing from anybody interested in my work — get in touch at email@example.com or on Twitter @14floating.
Thank you for visiting!
