academicmugshotMy name is Leila (lee-EYE-la) Walker, and I am the Emerging Technologies and Digital Scholarship Librarian. I oversee the creation and development of resources to support digital scholarship at Queens College, and invite partnership with faculty, staff, and students on their digital projects. In coordination with the Center for Teaching and Learning, I seek out new opportunities to advance digital pedagogy, and lead and organize training workshops. In 2018, I spearheaded the Open Educational Resources and Digital Literacy Faculty Fellowship, a grant-funded program that guides faculty in the responsible creation of OER courses.  I earned my PhD in British romantic literature at the CUNY Graduate Center. Prior to joining the Queens College Library faculty, I taught in the English department and served as the Research Associate for Shelley and his Circle, a multi-volume scholarly publication of manuscript materials held in the Pforzheimer Collection of Shelley and His Circle. I held a Council on Library and Information Resources Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2015-2016. My research interests include the digital humanities, British romantic literature, pedagogy, scholarly editing, and the history of the book.
