I specialize in media theory, digital humanities, and nineteenth-century British literature. My research investigates how the Nineteenth Century is adapted, remediated, and transmitted into more contemporary art and digital media. I’ve specifically looked at this phenomenon by exploring the adaptation of William Blake and by investigating the alternate history reconstruction of the Victorian Period in steampunk. I also occasionally write about digital pedagogy.

I’m Assistant Research Professor of Digital Humanities in Brigham Young University’s Office of Digital Humanities. I imagine, design, and manage digital scholarship projects in collaboration with faculty, colleagues, and students. I also teach classes in our Digital Humanities and Technology minor. I’m passionate about integrating digital approaches into pedagogy. Prior to coming to BYU, I worked at the Centers for Digital Scholarship at both Brown University and Emory University. I was Digital Humanities Librarian at Brown and Digital Humanities Strategist and Lecturer of English at Emory. At both schools, I managed large, multi-year, grant-funded projects in collaboration with faculty, librarians, graduate students, and other staff. These projects included the digitization of previously classified documents about Brazil / US relations; a digital edition of and edited collection about a 17th-century book of alchemy; the paved-over landscape and history of the Battle of Atlanta; the literary networks of writers in Northern Ireland; and the relationship among poets and editors in mid-century modern American poetry. I completed my Ph.D. at Emory University, investigating the relationships among technology, media, and psychological trauma. After that, I taught modern and contemporary American literature as well as courses on media studies, digital culture, and war fiction for a year at Emory and another year at Clemson University. I then became Emory’s first CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow and Emerging Technologies Librarian. Somewhere in there, I co-edited both a book and a journal issue on steampunk, edited a cluster at #Alt-Academy, and wrote for the group blog ProfHacker. I am the elected Secretary of the international Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations, an elected member of the Modern Language Association‘s Delegate Assembly, and an appointed member of the MLA’s Program Committee. I am a past member of the Executive Councils of the MLA and the Association for Computers and the Humanities. I use Twitter on occasion and track my publications with ORCID.
