University of Virginia
Current events: I've successfully defended my
dissertation and will be
moving to Lexington, Kentucky, to begin a tenure-track job in
Department of English
at the University of Kentucky (as of August 1).
teaching courses in an interdisciplinary graduate program in humanities
computing and informatics, as well as courses in the English department on
contemporary literature and comparative media. A key element of the job will
be collaborating with computer science faculty to develop new research
projects and software tools. I will also continue my work with the
Blake Archive, in the capacity of Technical Editor.|
I've done a good deal of writing about -- and applied work in -- humanities computing and new media during my time at Virginia. See the materials in the right-hand frame. I'm looking forward to continuing this work in my new appointment, though I will of course miss Virginia, particularly the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities, where I have had the opportunity to work with a number of interesting people. And I also have fond memories of Alderman Library's Electronic Text Center, where I spent two rough and tumble years in the trenches.
In November 1998 I traveled to Bergen, Norway for Digital Arts and Culture 98. You can look at pictures from a day-long excursion called Norway in a Nutshell, or pictures taken around Bergen and at the conference banquet (the Nutshell pictures are more interesting).
Some pictures from the ACH-ALLC international humanities computing conference, held this past June in Charlottesville, are available here.
