Dr Melissa Terras
I am the Director of UCL Centre for Digital Humanities, and Reader in Electronic Communication in the Department of Information Studies at University College London (UCL), where I teach Digitisation and Web Publishing, and supervise a range of Masters and PhD students.
My research interests involve applying computational technologies to Humanities problems, to allow research that would otherwise be impossible. As such, I'm interested in - and have been involved in - a variety of research areas that span many areas of Digital Humanities. Current projects include QRator, Transcribe Bentham, The Great Parchment Book and Textal.
Previous projects include
Log Analysis of Internet Resources in the Arts and Humanities, Virtual Environments for Research in Archaeology, eScience and Ancient Documents, and Researching eScience Analysis of Census Holdings. Further information about my activities can be found on my research page.
I am general editor of Digital Humanities Quarterly, and am currently Secretary of the Association of Literary and Linguistic Computing and serve on the executive of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations.
I am interested in proposals from potential PhD students wishing to
undertake postgraduate studies in Digital Humanities, and am happy to
discuss any research proposals prior to application. Please email me at email@example.com if you would like to discuss your future research career in Digital Humanities.
