University of Lethbridge
I am a Professor of English at the University of Lethbridge, where I teach Old English, History of the Book, Medieval Literature, Language, and Digital Humanities. I am a former department chair, past chair (2005-2011) of the Text Encoding Initiative Consortium (TEI), founding director of the Digital Medievalist Community of Practice, and founding editor of the Digital Medievalist journal.
I am currently involved in three main projects:
The Visionary Cross project (PI). An international project that is using cutting edge techniques in the Digital Humanities to study the “Visionary Cross” cultural matrix in Anglo-Saxon England. The first stages of this project–a 3D scan and edition of the eighth-century Ruthwell Cross Monument and an edition and (2D) facsimile of the Vercelli Book Dream of the Rood poem (led by Roberto Rosselli Del Turco)–are nearing completion.
Beyond these activities, I am currently co-president (English) of the Canadian Society of Digital Humanities/Société canadienne des humanités numériques (CSDH-SCHN), and editor-in-chief of the journal Digital Studies/Le champ numérique
