Those interested in doing reviews or finding out more about the journal should now contact Erin McGuirl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Digital Production Editor at the Folger Shakespeare Library
From Oct. 2017-Oct. 2019, I worked with a variety of scholars to develop and document data for Miranda, the Folger’s new Digital Asset Platform. Miranda is a home for all of the Folger’s digital materials, from images and sound files to book records and datasets.
Fellow for Data Curation at the Folger Shakespeare Library
From 2014-2017, I managed the NEH-funded project Digital Anthology of Early Modern English Drama at the Folger Shakespeare Library. The full corpus consists of over four hundred plays first performed in London from 1576 to 1642, which were primarily written by someone other than Shakespeare. The plays span the era from the opening of the first purpose-built theater in London, The Theatre, to the closing of the theaters in 1642 during the English Civil War. To be included in EMED, the play had to be printed before 1660, and a copy from that early printing has to still exist. A selection of the plays are available in documentary editions of their first printed witness, while many others are linked to digital facsimiles. Come explore the world of early modern drama beyond Shakespeare!
In addition to my work on on various Folger projects, I also research early modern English printer’s epistles and bibliometrics for book history and early modern studies.
