Description
Susan Brown is Director of the Orlando Project and the Project Leader of the Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory. She is a visiting professor in the Department of English and Film Studies at the University of Alberta, and professor in English and Theatre Studies at the University of Guelph. She is a British Victorianist whose research centers on the application of digital technology to the pursuit of literary history, and spans aspects of text encoding, text mining, interface design, and usability. Recent work has begun to investigate the exploration and visualization of social networks as embedded in semantic encoding. She is fascinated by critical theories of technology, particularly feminist perspectives, and in the impacts of earlier media and technological innovation on modes of literary production. Recent publications include the textbase Orlando: Women's Writing in the British Isles from the Beginnings to the Present (Cambridge, 2006; online), co-edited with Patricia Clements and Isobel Grundy and produced collaboratively with many others; meditations on when a digital project can be considered "done" for the Digital Humanities Quarterly; and a discussion of Orlando as a project in feminist knowledge representation for Women's Studies International Forum. Her publications on Victorian writing include work on Mathilde Blind, Augusta Webster, and other poets, including an article on The Ring and the Book in the Norton Critical Edition of Robert Browning's Poetry. Current research includes a SSHRC-funded Image, Sound, Text Technology grant on degrees of separation in digital literary history, participation in the ITST Speculative Timelines project led by Stan Ruecker, and co-editing collections of essays on feminism in the Canadian academy, and on digital methods for literary study. She has supervised graduate research projects and theses on hypertext and on various literary and cultural studies topics. Contact: Susan [a dot] Brown [the at sign] ualberta [another dot] ca
