I’m currently a Metadata Assistant at the Getty Research Institute, where I work on digital humanities projects related to the Getty Provenance Index (GPI) remodel. This includes the standardization and reconciliation of data from the GPI as we transition to a Linked Open Data model, which will virtually unite millions of records pertinent to the study of the history of collecting, provenance, and the art market. Through data cleaning and management, I help facilitate art historical research both now and for the future. My current project assists in the production and publication of data related to the German Sales II Project (1900-1929). My academic interests range from the topography, sculpture, and vase painting of Classical Greece – I wrote my dissertation on Athenian autochthony and identity during the Peloponnesian War – to research pertaining to the provenance of Greek and Roman antiquities and the history of travel, collecting, and display of works of ancient art.

Paige’s research interests include data modeling for humanities subjects, linked open data, social infrastructure for digital scholarship, emotional labor in tech contexts. She has served as a consultant and data wrangler on a variety of projects, including the CLIR microgrant project Identifying Early Modern Books (IdEMB). She teaches workshops and short courses on DH at training events such as DHSI and DH@Guelph.

I am a Near Eastern Archaeologist based in Germany and focused on the methodology of reconstruction of ancient architecture. I received my degree at the Free University of Berlin, Germany and am still anrolled as a PhD student with a thesis about the influence and development of archaeological reconstruction drawings of the 19th and 20th century. During my time as a student, I started a company called Artefacts, that focused on creating visual reconstructions of ancient architecture and worked for various projects. I am currently a research assistant at the University of Cologne and work in the newly created Master-programm of Archaeoinformatics (Computational Archaeology) as a specialist in 3D Documentation and Modelling. I am also a Fellow for Innovations in Digital Teaching and explore new ways of communicating archaeological knowledge with modern technologies in an associated project.

Colin Greenstreet is co-founder and co-director of MarineLives, a not-for-profit for the transcription, linkage and enrichment of the manuscript records of the English High Court of Admiralty from the 1650s and 1660s. The original records are held at the National Archives in Kew, England. Central to the vision of MarineLives is the bringing together of volunteers from academia and the general public, organised in facilitated teams and supported by modern IT and communications technology, to create an educational resource of value.

Bill Hughes was awarded a PhD in English Literature in 2010 from the University of Sheffield on communicative rationality and the Enlightenment dialogue in relation to the formation of the English novel. His research interests are in eighteenth-century literature; cultural and literary theory, particularly Raymond Williams, the Bakhtin circle, and the Frankfurt school; genre theory; aesthetics; intertextuality and the Semantic Web; and paranormal romance. He is co-founder, with Dr Sam George, of the Open Graves, Open Minds: Vampires and the Undead in Modern Culture Project at the University of Hertfordshire. He has publications out or forthcoming on Jane Austen, Frances Burney, Bernard Mandeville, Maria Edgeworth, Anne Radcliffe, and Charlotte Smith. Bill has also published on Richard Hoggart, with contributions in Richard Hoggart and Cultural Studies, ed. by Sue Owen (Palgrave, 2008), and Richard Hoggart: Culture and Critique, ed. by Michael Bailey and Mary Eagleton (Critical, Cultural and Communications Press, 2011). In addition, he is researching contemporary vampire literature and paranormal romance, co-editing (with Dr George) and contributing to the collection, ‘Open Graves, Open Minds’: Vampires and the Undead from the Enlightenment to the Present (Manchester University Press, 2013); and with articles forthcoming on the eighteenth-century novel and paranormal romance. He is co-editor of and on the editorial board of the journal Monstrum (forthcoming). This apparently disparate research is not unfocussed; it has at its core Bill’s concerns with the Enlightenment as viewed through the theory of Habermas and the Marxist tradition.
