A short summary of my main areas of activity at present:
- I’m currently Programme Convenor for the MA in Digital Humanities at King’s College London, which we believe to be the oldest MA in the field: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/taught-courses/digital-humanities-ma
- I teach modules on Digital Publishing at both postgraduate and undergraduate level
The current main focus for my research is on interactions between Modern Languages (ML) and digital culture/the digital humanities, in particular in the area of: digital methods, critical digital literacies and data-driven approaches to ML research. Much of this research is in collaboration with Renata Brandao, and forms part of the Language Acts & Worldmaking project, funded by the AHRC under its Open World Research Initiative https://languageacts.org/digital-mediations/
My future plans include further research into digital publishing in the humanities.
