I completed my Ph.D. in English, with specializations in Medieval Literature and Digital Humanities, in June 2011.  While a student at UCLA, I worked closely with the medieval manuscripts and digital humanities initiatives at UCLA was twice the recipient of the British Library’s Internship in Illuminated Manuscripts.  After graduating, I worked as a Mellon-funded postdoctoral researcher at Saint Louis University’s Center for Digital Humanities, where I helped to develop T-PEN (Transcription for Paleographical and Editorial Notation) and Tradamus—software applications that assist scholars in transcribing manuscripts and creating digital editions.  After my postdoctoral research, I taught for a year as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Puget Sound’s department of English.  I’ve published on medieval manuscripts, the digital humanities, and medieval film music. While writing her dissertation, I started an online business selling mid-century design objects to clients worldwide.  My shop has been featured in Apartment Therapy, Gourment magazine, and Etsy and has sourced products for Mad Men, Anthropologie, and Hawaii 5-0, among others. Currently, I live in Seattle and works as a Senior Curator at Amazon Books, where I curate the selection of titles for many categories in Amazon’s growing network of brick-and-mortar bookstores, including Art & Design, Graphic Novels, and Science Fiction.

MemberEleanor Sandry

My research is focused on developing an ethical and pragmatic recognition of, and respect for, otherness and difference in communication. I write about communication theory and practice, and draw upon varied examples—taken from science and technology, science fiction and creative art—to illustrate the ideas in my work. Much of my work to date has explored the communicative possibilities illustrated by human interactions with humanoid and non-humanoid robots, looking to fact and fiction, science and art, for inspiration. This research has now been published (along with some more recent thinking about human interactions with explosive ordnance disposal robots and robotic floor cleaners) as a book, Robots and Communication, with Palgrave Macmillan in the Pivot series.
