Profile: 

I am interested in applying Digital Humanities methodologies to the study of Romantic Women Writers, especially Amelia Alderson Opie (1769-1853. My goals are two-fold: 1) to make our website, "The Amelia Alderson Opie Archive," NINES compliant and recognized as a scholarly resource through peer review; 2) to add a new segment to the site--A2O Editions--that will feature TEI coded projects that will result from graduate student training in DH approaches to editing manuscript and print.
