Graduate Teaching Fellow

Digital Research and Dissertation Fellow





I am a Ph.D. student in English and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, studying British literature and culture in the eighteenth and nineteenth century. My research traces contemporary notions of authorship and textuality back to the eighteenth century, arguing that emerging publication and remediation practices of fiction in fact modernized communities by abstracting identities across material objects.I also work on new media archeology, the history of the book, algorithmically generated datasets, and digital humanities. I am also a Graduate Fellow of the Carolina Digital Humanities Initiative,  the Assistant Project Manager of the William Blake Archive, and the Assistant Director of  the Studio for Instructional Technology and English Studies.
