I am at present a PhD candidate in the School of English and Theatre Studies, specializing in Early Modern Drama. Throughout my graduate career, I have been involved in a number of projects which have attempted to bridge the gap between the humanities and the digital world: In the first year of my Master’s program, I attended a Humanities Computing Institute put on by the University of Calgary and led by Murray McGillivray, where I was first introduced to html & xml coding, TEI compliance and the possibilities for humanities scholarship only available through digital media. Since then, I have worked on two online projects at the University of Calgary. First was the Cotton Nero a. x. Project, which is producing a digital edition of the British Library Cotton Nero a. x. manuscript . Second was the Osborne Project which was a digital rendition of the recently discovered early modern holograph play script found in the University of Calgary’s Special Collections . Further, working with Murray McGillivray, I served as a course builder on a junior level English course where students delved into Early English Books Online as the source material to create online group projects. While at the University of Guelph, I have also worked as a research assistant on the SSHRC funded projects, Media Education Project (headed by Mark Lipton) and the Sustaining Digital Scholarship for Sustainable Culture Project (headed by Susan Brown). I'm a regular participant at the DHSI at the University of Victoria and am becoming increasingly interested in the possibilities of GIS in historical research.
