I’m James Baillie, I’m a pre-doctoral Universitatsassistent in digital humanities at the University of Vienna, originally hailing from the east of England. My research interests focus on the Black Sea region and the Caucasus in the Middle Ages, especially the history of Georgia, and my current project is the construction of a Prosopographical database covering Georgia in the twelfth century.

MemberJordan Stepp

During the day I act as the Intellectual Property and Contracts Manager for University of Georgia Press. I negotiate contracts; buy and sell sub-rights and translations; champion fair use, open access, and accessibility; occasionally acquire a book; and handle all legal issues for the Press under the eye of our General Counsel. On nights and weekends I’m a freelance writer and website content manager. I’ve written for publications both locally in Athens and far flung across the globe. Though music is my main thing, I also dabble in lit crit, legal studies, and general non-fiction storytelling. I, like everyone in town, am working on a book. Ask me about it. When not writing, I do grunt work for websites like updating dead links, correcting spelling errors, etc. During college, I promoted multiple local shows, created my own music oriented website, organized special events, interviewed musical legends, built a strong network of creative individuals, held down a job, hobby, volunteer position, freelance job, and two internships as I was studying for my Journalism degree, and established myself as a dependable, hard worker capable of meeting the strictest of deadlines, be they for one of my freelance writing gigs or an important upcoming event. Since college, I have had content featured on NPR, managed a hoard of interns, overseen a department of college student workers, grown my web-based organization, and started a novel.
