My Research

As a researcher, I write books, articles, and lectures on various topics, mostly having to do with medieval language and literature, the history of the book, textual scholarship, and humanities computing. My most recent major publication is Cædmon’s Hymn: A multimedia study, edition, and archive. You can find a complete list of my publications and lectures in my CV.

I am also associated with three international research projects: The Digital Medievalist Project, The Visionary Cross Project, and the Text Encoding Initiative:

I will post copies and offprints from my publications here whenever possible and as time allows. At the moment these postings are biased towards my on-line work with Digital Humanities; I am investigating my copyrights on my print research.
