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 completed a book manuscript on the relationship between the London public theaters and financial markets between 1688 and 1763. This book 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.
