Who We Are

Jesse McDowell:

I am a teaching fellow and PhD student in the department of English at Loyola University Chicago, formerly teaching at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. In my research I focus on hypertext in Old and Middle English manuscripts with a particular focus on how digital technology can inhere the same experiences with literacy then as it can now, particularly in various digital media. I am also interested in digital archiving, text-encoding, and constructing digital microfilm editions. In my papers presented (in hopes of publication) I have focused on Alfredian texts, mainly the Old English Boethius. Other interests include Early British Monastic culture, early book production, and the intersection of devotion and expression in Early British / Anglo-Saxon England.
