I conduct research in the field of eighteenth-century poetry, especially early romanticism. I'm the founder and editor of the Eighteenth-Century Poetry Archive, a long-term research project devoted to the poetry of the long eighteenth century. I'm also the co-founder (with Reimer Eck, formerly Associate Director of Göttingen State and University Library) and editor of the Thomas Gray Archive, a long-term research project devoted to the mid-eighteenth-century poet, letter-writer, and scholar Thomas Gray (1716-1771).
The main objective of the Eighteenth-Century Poetry Archive — ECPA — is to develop into a lively, collaborative workspace in support of the teaching, study, and research of eighteenth-century poetry. To this end, ECPA is committed to the creation of an open-access digital archive of high-quality primary and secondary sources. ECPA comprises two central components, the digital collection of richly encoded full-texts and a research project, which focuses on the computationally-assisted analysis of these texts.
The Thomas Gray Archive is a long-term research project devoted to the mid-eighteenth-century poet, letter-writer, and scholar Thomas Gray (1716-1771). The Archive offers access to Gray's complete poetry with extensive collaborative commentary, selected prose works, a correspondence calendar, and a digital library of primary sources and audio-visual materials. There is also an increasing number of secondary resources available, including a finding aid to Thomas Gray manuscripts, a concordance to Gray's poetry, a criticism page, biography, chronology, bibliography, glossary, and picture gallery.
