Amy is a MPhil student in Digital Humanities, having previously completed an undergraduate degree in English at St John’s College, Cambridge. During that degree, they developed a particular interest in the material contexts of literature: the physicality of the thing requires attention as well as the ideas or content it conveys. The process of digitising can make material more accessible, but it also risks losing some of that ‘stuff’-ness of the physical object. Amy is curious about how those elements might be not only preserved digitally, but also made apparent to those who might not have been able to access the material in analog form. They also enjoy exploring kinds of writing that are inseparable from the digital – they have a soft spot for poetry written in coding languages – and they’re always keen to engage with diverse research interests, especially those that diverge from their own!
