About

1-PEP_0962I’m an Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities in the Department of English at the University of Oregon. I previously taught at Utah State University, where I specialized in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century British literature. I recently finished a book, Speculative Enterprise: Public Theaters and Financial Markets in London, 1688-1763, available now from the University of Virginia Press. This project extends my doctoral research, which was completed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am also the Principal Investigator for the NEH-funded London Stage Database — a new platform for research and teaching about popular culture of the long eighteenth century (1660-1800), based on a recovered database of theater records originally developed in the 1970s. My pronouns are she/her.
