About Adrianne Wadewitz

I recently completed my Ph.D. in English at Indiana University and am interested in using data mining tools to chart the language of sensibility during the 18th century, particularly its appearance in children's literature. My dissertation explored the tensions between the discourse of sensibility and the emergence of the modern self in 18th-century children's literature. In addition to my doctoral work, I have been hired as an educational consultant by the Wikimedia Foundation, been honored as a HASTAC scholar, and taught classes on virtual worlds, children's literature, and the digital humanities. My most recent article, on teaching with Wikipedia, appeared in Hacking the Academy (University of Michigan Press, 2011).
