We are happy to announce our new Mellon DH Fellow, Sydney Bufkin. Sydney is a familiar face for many of us at W&L as she’s been teaching in the English Department for the last few years. Sydney received her PhD in English from the University of Texas at Austin with a specialization in nineteenth-century American literature and reception studies. At W&L, Sydney has taught a range of courses in the English Department and Writing Program. She specializes in digital approaches to pedagogy and has received a DH incentive grant for her multi-modal writing assignments. Her interest in computational approaches to literature manifests itself in her own research on a corpus of reviews of nineteenth-century purpose fiction and hopefully in future DH courses!
Sydney will being on June 12. Please welcome her to her new role in Leyburn Library.
