Emily C. Murphy is a doctoral candidate in the Department of English at Queen’s University, Canada. Her dissertation project focuses on representations of female literary celebrity and mental illness, particularly schizophrenia, in the modernist period, a project that has cultivated interests in modernist journalism, political activism, and public and private writing. She attempts to mobilize the ephemeral materials that produced these discourses through such digital humanities methodologies as topic modelling and social network analysis. She has published an article on Samuel Beckett and the afterlife of hysteria in English Studies in Canada. She has taught courses on digital humanities methodologies at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute, the British Library Digital Scholarship Training Programme, and the Digital Humanities Field School at Herstmonceux Castle. She is a doctoral fellow with the Canada and the Spanish Civil War project.
