I am a digital humanist with a background in literary studies. My research focuses on the poetry of the very long eighteenth century, especially the formation of Romanticism in Britain, Europe, and beyond.
I am the editor of two peer-reviewed digital archives. The Thomas Gray Archive (TGA) was founded in 2000 and is devoted to eighteenth-century poet, letter-writer, and scholar Thomas Gray (1716-1771), author of the acclaimed “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard” (1751).
The Eighteenth-Century Poetry Archive (ECPA) is an award-winning digital archive and research project (2015- ) devoted to the poetry of the long eighteenth century and builds on the electronic texts created by the Text Creation Partnership from Gale’s Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO).
I am currently working on an exciting new project: a digital platform for the study of global Romantic period poetry, or RPPA /ræpə/ for short. Read more about the project on the project website, which includes an open invitation to academics, research projects, digital archives and repositories, and anyone with an interest in the literature of the Romantic period in any discipline to collaborate on RPPA. Please do not hesitate to reach out.
