Welcome to my ePortfolio. My name is Elizabeth Erwin and I am an academic librarian and cultural researcher whose work explores depictions of gender and politics in popular culture narratives. As a first-generation college student, I am especially interested in exploring modalities that support information literacy in non-academic spheres and that bring traditional academic theory into public discourse. My work leverages intersectional frameworks and is grounded in a desire to understand how cultural conversations evolve.

The purpose of this site is to showcase some representative samples of my work. Here you will find examples of instructional videos, traditional and open access publications, and public-facing humanities projects. While not a comprehensive listing of my work, the work product selected represents my interest in supporting various student learning styles and my commitment to creating and engaging with Open Access materials. If you would like to collaborate on a project, please contact me at ele210@lehigh.edu.

Areas of Specialization:  Film, Television, and Popular Culture, Information Literacy, American Horror, Young Adult Literature, Serialized Storytelling, Oral History, Public Humanities, Open Educational Resources, 20th Century Cultural Studies.
