Clarissa J. Ceglio

Associate Director of Research, Greenhouse Studios

Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities


Dr. Ceglio is a U.S. cultural historian working at the intersections of digital humanities, museum studies, and public humanities.  Much of her research focuses on the affective, rhetorical, and other roles that artifacts—material, visual, and digital—play in constructing national and social imaginaries within the context of museum work. She also collaborates with a range of partners on interdisciplinary public humanities initiatives and museum-focused research projects. As Associate Director of Research for the Mellon Foundation-funded Greenhouse Studios, she draws on her past career in public communications and publishing; that prior work includes development of ConnecticutHistory.org, an award-winning state public history project in collaboration with Connecticut Humanities, and senior editorial positions in the arts, history, and medical fields.  She holds a PhD in American Studies and an MA in Public Humanities from Brown University.
