MemberIsabella Magni

I am currently Postdoctoral Associate in Italian and Digital Humanities at Rutgers University, teaching and conducting research at the intersection between digital humanities and digital philology, Medieval and Early modern literature, history of the book, Petrarch and Dante. I am editor of the Petrarchive (with Wayne Storey and John Walsh) and Italian Paleography (with Lia Markey and Maddalena Signorini). I recently edited a special issue on digital paleography for the Early Modern Digital Review (Fall ’20) and serve as digital editor for Textual Cultures , the journal of the Society for Textual Scholarship. I am currently working on a new digital edition of the Albizi Memorial Book and a monograph on forms and textualities of Medieval memorial books.   Before joining Rutgers Italian Department, Isabella was Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the Newberry Library in Chicago and earned her PhD in Italian and Medieval Studies at Indiana University.

MemberSamantha Blickhan

I’m the Humanities Research Lead for Zooniverse. I received my Ph.D. in Musicology from Royal Holloway, University of London, with a thesis on the paleography of British song notation in the 12th and 13th centuries. Though I trained as a musicologist, I’m also a specialist in paleography and manuscript studies, and now I help researchers build crowdsourcing projects on Zooniverse. I’m currently researching best practices in crowdsourced text transcription, but I’m also interested in machine learning, particularly Handwritten Text Recognition. Advocate for open access, accessibility, & education for all. She/her.

I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto, and went on to complete my M.Phil at Trinity College Dublin, where I am currently undertaking my PhD. The focus of my research is synchronic language variation in Old Irish, focusing specifically on the Old Irish glosses of Milan, St. Gall and Würzburg with a view to potentially identifying diatopic variation within the Old Irish corpus. My research interests extend far beyond linguistics and into mythology, paleography, codicology, and folk healing and medicine, to name a few

MemberEmerson Storm Fillman Richards

 am an advocate for old books and libraries, promoting the Humanities through Special Collections and Archives.  My research has focused for over a decade on medieval literature and culture. I am interested in recovering individuals lives from the material past, using methodology from literary studies and Book History (codicology, paleography, bibliography). I have been working on an illustrated, thirteenth-century Anglo-Norman Apocalypse manuscript, proposing a hypothetical audience and the manuscript would have been read by its culture.
