As a historian I published over 10 works (books, articles, blogs). Among these was preparing, editing and proofreading a major book for publication that included 17 chapters, 15 authors and 150,000 words.

As proofreader for the DIB I edited and proofed over 100 biographical entries, ranging from 400 to 2,000 words. This entailed checking spelling and grammar, amending and simplifying awkward sentences, and double-checking sources.

This book is about mapping the future of eighteenth-century women’s writing and feminist literary history, in an academic culture that is not shy of declaring their obsolescence. It asks: what can or should unite us as scholars devoted to the recovery and study of women’s literary history in an era of big data, on the one hand, and ever more narrowly defined specialization, on the other?
