I’m a PhD student at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, UK), where I study representations of gender in the Early Modern London plays as part of the Mellon-Funded Visualizing English Print 1470-1800 project between Strathclyde, UW-Madison and the Folger Shakespeare Library. You can read more about our research on our blog.
My PhD is about the creation and implementation of a text analysis tool called Genderscope, which applies a universal metric of gendered terms to a given corpus. It is based around the framework of a rhetorical analysis software developed at Carnegie Mellon University by David Kaufer and Suguru Ishizaki called Docuscope.
I co-teach a digital humanities course called Textlab, which is part of Strathclyde’s Vertically Integrated Projects Initiative. In the past I have taught First-Year English (2011-2012), and this year I am also teaching Literature, Criticism and Theory (2012-2013).
In 2011-2012 I was the editor-in-chief of ecloga: A Journal of English studies, Strathclyde’s B-listed international peer-reviewed journal. You can read more about it here or read my edited issue as a PDF here.
Within the department I am involved in several research groups, including the Literary Linguistics Advanced Research Group, the Group for Renaissance Research Reading and the Digital Humanities Research group.
