The Age of Transmission: From Victorian Media Cultures to the Digital Humanities
ACLS Burkhardt Fellowship, 2018–19
Paul Fyfe’s research and teaching includes British Victorian literature, nineteenth-century book and media history, scholarly communications, and a variety of digital humanities practices. Currently, he is working on a book called The Age of Transmission, a long history of digital humanities based in nineteenth-century media cultures. This work is generously supported by a 2018–2019 ACLS Burkhardt Fellowship at the National Humanities Center.
He also participates in a few digital research projects, such as Oceanic Exchanges, which tracks information flow across international nineteenth-century newspaper networks; Illustrated Image Analytics, which experiments how computer vision can search and sort Victorian periodical illustrations; Speech Across Dialects of English (SPADE) with colleagues in linguistics; and Victoria’s Lost Pavilion, which virtually reconstructs Queen Victoria’s garden pavilion as a three-dimensional model. At NC State, he’s also part of the CRDM PhD program, the Visual Narrative interdisciplinary cluster, and the graduate certificate in digital humanities.
