Bio/Research

I am a specialist in Digital Humanities, with expertise in the early modern and Victorian periods. I am Associate Director of Ryerson's Centre for Digital Humanities and also an Assistant Director of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) at the University of Victoria. I have been a leading collaborator on the online theatre history research tools produced by the international scholarly project Records of Early English Drama (REED), which include the Patrons and Performances database, Early Modern London Theatres (EMLoT), and The Fortune Theatre Records: A Prototype Digital Edition. I am currently working on the Texting Wilde Project, funded by a Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Insight Development Grant, which will explore computer-assisted methods for the analysis of large collections of life-writing texts.

Research Interests:

My research interests include digital innovation and scholarly practice (particularly developing online research collaboratories), work emerging at the intersection of the digital and the literary, critical code studies, computer games and gaming in social, literary, and scholarly contexts, and 'digital lives' in its broadest sense. I am also interested in the role of digital technology in the shaping of LGBT communities and cultures.
