Professor Martin Gliserman (Colby College, Indiana University, Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies) teaches digital literary analysis, psychoanalytic theory, literature and psychology, and seminars on Virginia Woolf, Ralph Ellison, Chester Himes, and trauma. He basically teaches novels. His courses may invite students into the literary text (deep reading) so that they can see dimensions that had been hidden; or students may be asked into their own complex responses to literary texts and thus see another dimension of the text—our relationship with it. His research involves working with the web of words in one hundred novels written between 1719-1997. In the matrix of words we find a code. The novel gives us a story and encoded directions for pixelating it. This is a Digital Humanities project that involves data mining of cultural material. It yields insights into human cognition and how cultural forms are passed along. And, of course, it allows us to marvel that human beings can generate materials of such complexity and beauty. Gliserman is also an active faculty member who began the RU Teaching Conference in 1997; the most recent conference was in Fall of 2014 and focused on teaching and technology. Last, he has a psychoanalytic practice. Life also involves family, dogs, opera, movies, biking, and (select) TV series.
