Katherine D. Harris (@triproftri on Twitter), an Associate Professor in the Department of English and Comparative Literature, San José State University, specializes in Romantic-Era and 19th-century British literature, women’s authorship, the literary annual, textuality, editorial theory, and Digital Humanities. Her work ranges from pedagogical articles and blog posts (http://triproftri.wordpress.com) on using digital tools in the classroom to traditional scholarship on a “popular” literary form in 19th-century England, all of which culminates in her three studies surrounding the literary annuals: Forget Me Not: The Rise of the British Literary Annual 1823-1835 (Ohio UP 2015); The Forgotten Gothic: Short Stories from British Annuals 1823-1831 (Zittaw Press 2012); and The Forget Me Not: A Hypertextual Archive. As discussed in her articles for Polymath, Wiley-Blackwell's A New Companion to Digital Humanities, and Journal of Digital Humanities, Harris has engaged with Digital Humanities and Digital Pedagogy by experimenting with her undergraduate and graduate students on various forms of digital literary work. Her latest articles on the digital archive for the Johns Hopkins Guide to Digital Media & Textuality and Textual Cultures cultivates ideas surrounding archives, archive fever, and Derrida. A major co-edited digital "book" for the Modern Language Association is also now available: Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Concepts, Models & Experiments. Eds. Katherine D. Harris, Jentery Sayers, Rebecca Frost Davis, Matthew K. Gold. A collaborative database of curated teaching materials under contract with the Modern Language Association. Open for peer review 2015-2016.
