Interests/Position

Dr. Albert Pionke is a Professor in the Department of English.  A Victorian specialist, his interests in digital humanities are at once pedagogical, archival, and analytical.  He has experimented with crowdsourcing and bibliography in the classroom, and with digitizing articles on the "Indian Mutiny" for the Victorian Web.  Pionke has begun to recover the distinctively British vision of Cuba in the late-colonial period by applying the tools of data-mining and topic-modelling to digital archives of nineteenth-century periodicals and other texts, with results appearing in the fall 2014 issue of _Victorian Literature and Culture_.  At present, he is collaborating with staff at Oxford University's Somerville College on the digitization and analysis of marginalia in the personal library of John Stuart Mill.
