Song of Myself

Hello, World!

After a few years of silence on this site (interspersed with the occasional remark on nines.org and praxis.scholarslab.org), I’m actually going to jump feet first into this strange world of blogging.  In case any of my currently non-existent readers want to know who I am and why I’m taking up cyberspace in the blogosphere, I’ll quickly introduce myself:
I’m a 5th year PhD candidate in English at the University of Virginia, and I specialize in Victorian poetry, digital humanities, sound studies (with an emphasis on the connections between music and literature), and feminism.  I’ve been affiliated with NINES and the Scholars’ Lab, and I’m currently working on a digital project called “Songs of the Victorians,” a hypermedia archive and scholarly tool to facilitate my interdisciplinary interests in the connections between music and poetry, and you can read more about it here.

Click here if you want to read my blog posts from the Scholars’ Lab last year when I and a group of five other graduate students built Prism, a tool for “crowd-sourcing interpretation” that produces visualizations to help spur “aesthetic provocation.”

I plan to use this blog to talk about updates to my digital projects and advice about programming, but the occasional entry may address BBC adaptations of Victorian literature, adventures in teaching, and difficulties involved in figuring out how to discuss music for non-musical audiences.

Thanks for reading!
