Roman studied History and Religious studies at the University of Graz. He also completed a certificate in Information Modelling in the Humanities at the Centre for Information Modelling (ZIM – ACDH). Following his studies in Graz, he did an internship at the Saint Patrick’s Confessio HyperText Stack (http://www.confessio.ie), a project of the Royal Irish Academy in Dublin, and completed a Ph.D. in Digital Arts and Humanities at Trinity College Dublin. After finishing his Ph.D. in 2015, he worked as CENDARI Visiting Research Fellow at King’s College London and as Researcher at An Foras Feasa, the Digital Humanities Centre at Maynooth University. Since May 2016 Roman is DiXiT Post-Doc Fellow at the Centre for Information Modelling – Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities at Graz University.

My research interests cover documentary, descriptive, theoretical, historical and applied linguistics. I have extensive fieldwork experience since 1972 on Australian Aboriginal languages (northern New South Wales, northern South Australia, and north-west Western Australia) and co-authored with David Nathan the first fully page-formatted hypertext dictionary on the World Wide Web, a bilingual dictionary of Gamilaraay (Kamilaroi), northern New South Wales, as well as publishing seven bilingual dictionaries of Aboriginal languages. Since 2011 I have been working with the Dieri Aboriginal Corporation on revitalisation of the Dieri language spoken in South Australia (see Dieri WordPress). Since 1995 I have been carrying out research on Sasak and Samawa, Austronesian languages spoken on Lombok and Sumbawa islands, eastern Indonesia, in collaboration with colleagues at Mataram University and Frankfurt University. My theoretical research is mainly on syntax and focuses on Lexical Functional Grammar, morpho-syntactic typology, computer-aided lexicography and multi-media for endangered languages. I have also published on historical and comparative linguistics, typology, and Aboriginal history and biography. I am currently working with Dr Julia Sallabank and with colleagues at University of Warsaw and Leiden University on an EU Horizon2020 Twinning project called Engaged Humanities, and with Professor Stefanie Pillai, University of Malaya, on a British Academy-funded collaborative research project in Malaysia.

Linnea Zeiner is a counter-culture feminist historian and digital humanist conducting multi-disciplinary research in transmedia platforms of scholarship, presentation, and pedagogy. She earned her M.A. in History from San Diego State University, where as a graduate student she initiated the use of digital platforms and Digital Humanities best-practices in the jumbo lower-division U.S. history classes. Linnea’s thesis, grunge feminism: performing gender paradox in queered plays of hypertexuality, published in 2015, is the first born-digital, interactive thesis at San Diego State. It is a multi-modal work presenting a non-linear and completely interactive reader experience that is designed to open up new interpretative opportunities in the digital classroom. Currently, Ms. Zeiner continues her work with the SDSU Digital Humanities Initiative, innovating digital pedagogy for humanities classes and working with the San Diego Digital Humanities Consortium to help the region’s diverse learning institutions innovate DH pedagogy to enhance the learning experiences of underrepresented student communities. She joined The Department of Classics and Humanities as a Lecturer in 2016, teaching HUM409 (The Future). Working out of the experimental and collaborative environment of the ITS Learning Research Studios, this class engages with speculative, pop-ontological, and techno-anxiety inducing sci-fi to explore the broad spectrum of realities presented in visual as well as written narratives, and to critique the social constructions of bodies and spaces in “The Future”.
