Personal Information

First name: 
Adrianne
Last name: 
Wadewitz
Brief Bio: 

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).
