Her book, Women, Epic, and Transition in British Romanticism, was published by the University of Delaware Press in 2011. Her published articles in ELH (English Literary History), Genre, Philological Quarterly, and The Wordsworth Circle investigate the poetry of Robert Southey, Mary Russell Mitford, and Lord Byron. She is the architect of the Digital Mitford Project and other web-based digital humanities projects, and is working in conjunction with MITH’s Shelley-Godwin Archive, Romantic Circles, and Pittsburgh-based research team on collating the print and manuscript versions of Frankenstein in time for its bicentennial in 2018. She was elected in 2015 to serve on the TEI Technical Council, an eleven-member international committee that supervises amendments to the TEI Guidelines.

  • Amy Culley is Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Lincoln, UK. She is the author of British Women’s Life Writing, 1760–1840: Friendship, Community, and Collaboration (Palgrave, 2014), co-editor with Anna Fitzer of Editing Women’s Writing, 1670–1840 (Routledge, 2017), co-editor with Daniel Cook of Women’s Life Writing, 1700–1850: Gender, Genre and Authorship (Palgrave, 2012), and editor of Women’s Court and Society Memoirs, volumes 1–4 (Pickering & Chatto, 2009). She is currently researching narratives of ageing and old age in women’s life writing of the early nineteenth century.

  • Kellie Donovan-Condron is a founding editor and Poetry section editor for the Digital Mitford Archive, a digital humanities project that is putting the poetry, historical drama, short prose sketches, and voluminous correspondence of nineteenth-century writer Mary Russell Mitford online. She (p.x) teaches intermediate literature, rhetoric, and foundation courses in the Arts and Humanities at Babson College outside Boston, MA. Her research interests are an interdisciplinary mix of literature, history, and material culture. Areas of particular interest include urban identity in the early nineteenth century, the gothic novel, women’s writing, consumerism and consumption in literature, Southern Gothic, and fairy tales. In the summer of 2013, she was selected to be a summer scholar in the National Endowment for the Humanities seminar ‘Reassessing British Romanticism’.

  • Eric Hood is an Assistant Professor at Adrian College and holds a PhD in English from the University of Kansas. He is a founding editor at The Digital Mitford. His scholarship focuses on British epic performances during the eighteenth and nineteenth century and cultural theory.

She is a research assistant on Dr. Michelle Levy’s Women’s Print History Project, 1750–1836, a bibliography encompassing women in print in the Romantic period. Her Master’s project, Compiling Sanditon, analyzes the trajectory of Jane Austen’s Sanditon from private, unfinished manuscript (as it was left upon Austen’s death in 1817), to its fragmentary and then complete publication in the early twentieth century.

  • Felicity James is Associate Professor in eighteenth and nineteenth-century English literature at the University of Leicester, with research interests in Romantic friendship, sociability, and religious dissent.
