Laura Mandell, Professor of English Literature and affiliate of Armstrong Interactive Media Studies at Miami University of Ohio has published Misogynous Economies: The Business of Literature in Eighteenth-Century Britain (1999), a Longman Cultural Edition of The Castle of Otranto and Man of Feeling, and numerous articles primarily about eighteenth-century women writers. Her recent article in New Literary History describes how digital work can be used to conduct research into conceptions informing the writing and printing of eighteenth-century poetry. That article forms part of a book manuscript in progress: “Carved in Breath: Technology and Affect in Gothic Fiction and Romantic Poetry.” She is Editor of the Poetess Archive, an online scholarly edition and database of women poets, 1750-1900 (http://unixgen.muohio.edu/~poetess); Associate Director of NINES (http://www.nines.org); and is currently participating in the development of 18thConnect, a similar online network for eighteenth-century scholars. Her current research involves developing new methods for visualizing poetry (http://miamichat.wordpress.com), developing software that will allow all scholars to deep-code documents for datamining, and improving OCR software for early modern and 18th-c. texts via high performance and cluster computing.
