My personal research employs digital tools and traditional descriptive bibliography to look at how early modern printers intervened and shaped early modern literary texts. I’m deeply interested in how early modern printers explained the new technology of print, and in what modern technology can help us verify about their claims to revision, emendation, or authenticity. I enjoy exploring new tools and topics. At the moment, that means experimenting with geographic data and toponyms from early modern English drama, exploring the role of interface design on Shakespeare’s digital presence, and examining the influence of later editors on the text of the first work printed in English, the Recuyell of the Historyes of Troye.
