Recently I was been appointed as chair of the Teaching Committee at DDH and programme Director for the MA Digital Humanities and co-Director of MA Digital Assets Management. Previously I was member of the research staff at the Department of Digital Humanities and involved in many collaborative research projects such as the Jane Austen's Fiction Manuscripts, The Jonathan Swift Archive, CHARM- the AHRC Centre for the History and Analysis of Recorded Music and many others.
My research interests are digital textual scholarship, modern manuscripts and genetic digital editions. Since 2007 I chair the Special Interest Group on Manuscripts of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI), the standard for text encoding in the humanities.
In the MA Digital Humanities I teach the core module on 'Methods and Techniques', a module on 'Digital Publishing' and a skilled-based module called 'Advanced Text Technologies', all of them can be also taken as part of the MA in Digital Assets Management. All of these modules address what happens to texts when they meet computers, what the consequences are from a scholarly point of view and the implications for the users of digital texts.
The MA in Digital Humanities and in Digital Assets Management benefit from the presence of teachers which are all internationally renowned leaders in their respective fields, which engagement in the many DDH research projects bring to the students first-hand experience in how to do Digital Humanities. The Department of Digital Humanities has more than 20 years experience of innovative research in the field, representing the bigger centre for Digital Humanities in Europe and one of the biggest worldwide, both in term of number of researchers employed and research funding and I feel privileged to be part of such an outstanding research and teaching environment.
