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 notions of adaptation and intertextuality. I also work on bibliographic studies, the history of the book, computational literary studies, and digital humanities. I am also a Graduate Fellow of the Carolina Digital Humanities Initiative, a Graduate Fellow of the Migrations Lab at Duke University, the Assistant Project Manager of the William Blake Archive, Project Manager for the Bass Connections Project “Representing Migration Through Digital Humanities,”and the Assistant Director of the Digital Literacy and Communications Lab.
