Emily McGinn

Dr. McGinn oversees the Willson Center Digital Humanities Lab in a role that includes advising, consulting and managing new digital projects, designing new DH curriculum, and outreach. Prior to this position, she was a CLIR (Council on Library and Information Resources) Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Humanities at Lafayette College. There she served as a liaison between the library’s Digital Scholarship Services team of developers and faculty. She co-authored a digital edition of Virginia Woolf’s “The Mark on the Wall” that compares six versions of the short story through TEI markup. She has also published book chapters on Latin American modernist literature, and presented numerous talks on both Modernist Studies and digital humanities. Her research primarily focuses on the intersections of science, technology, and global modernism. Her dissertation, The Science of Sound: The Impact of Sound Recording on Vanguard Narrative Form, is a comparative study of Irish and Latin American modernisms and the literary responses to the advent of recorded sound.
