MemberNicky Agate

I am interested in how various iterations of “openness”—including OA publishing models, open educational models, and open peer review, as well as open and transparent scholarly practices—might help foster a more inclusive, equitable, and community-oriented academy. I am co-PI on the Mellon-funded HumetricsHSS initiative, an investigation into the viability of a values-based framework for indicating excellence, and a founding editor of The Idealis, an overlay journal promoting the best in open-access scholarly communication. I serve on the editorial board of the Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication and the organizing committee of the Force11 Scholarly Communication Institute.

MemberDarrell J. Rohl

I am a specialist in life and interaction at the edges of the Roman Empire, comparative borderland dynamics in world history, archaeological theory (e.g. archaeology of place, process philosophy, postcolonial perspectives), and digital tools/methodologies within archaeology, history, and the wider humanities. I currently direct the Archaeology program at Calvin College and have active archaeological fieldwork projects in Jordan, where I am the Director of Excavations for the Umm al-Jimal Project and Director of the Hisban North Church Project. Previously, I was the academic lead for the Hidden Landscape of a Roman Frontier Project, a collaborative project of Canterbury Christ Church University and Historic Environment Scotland that focused on remote sensing of the Antonine Wall.

MemberTeresa Villa-Ignacio

I am Assistant Professor of French and Francophone Studies in the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at Stonehill College. My research explores contemporary poetic and translational interventions into ethical philosophy, postcolonial liberation movements, discourses of globalization, and social justice activism. I am completing a book manuscript entitled Poethical Import: Translationships in French-American Poetic Exchange, which examines the centrality of ethics in relations of translation and collaboration among France- and U.S.-based contemporary poets. My related podcast series, Sounding Translation, features interviews with poet-translators. I have also co-edited Souffles-Anfas: A Critical Anthology from the Moroccan Journal of Culture and Politics (Stanford University Press, 2016) and Traduire le Maghreb/Translating the Maghreb, a special issue of Expressions Maghrébines, (15.1, Summer 2016). I have been the recipient of an Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Humanities at Tulane University, and a Fulbright Research Scholar Grant as Visiting Scholar at the Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée. I hold a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from Brown University, and have taught in the History and Literature Program at Harvard University, the Romance Studies Department at Boston University, and in the Departments of French and Italian and English at Tulane University.

In my role as Research Services Consultant at the University of Leicester I lead on the Research Metrics portfolio, which means I advocate responsible use of bibliometrics and altmetrics for analysis, horizon scanning and evaluation.

MemberPatrik Bye

I’m associate professor of English Language and Linguistics at the University of Nordland in Bodø, Norway. For many years I taught general (theoretical) and English linguistics at the University of Tromsø, where I was an associate of CASTL (Center for Advanced Study in Theoretical Linguistics). The focus of my research has been phonology (language sound structure), especially how phonological knowledge interacts with other cognitive systems that subserve language, including the lexicon and syntax. More recently I’ve turned to the ways in which the categories and structures of language presuppose and are influenced by interaction with the physical and social environment, as well as how language, understood as a discrete combinatorial system, shapes the human lifeworld. My latest project applies linguistics to understanding poetic effects.
