About

Samya Brata Roy (He/Him) just received his M.A in English Literature from The English and Foreign Languages University, Hyderabad and will be joining PhD in Humanities and Social Sciences at IIT Jodhpur. My interests lie in and around digital narratives, materiality, pedagogy and accessibility.



I have been writing here at thepenarchist.wordpress.com for the last five years and have almost 80 entries at present. I lead the SIG on Digital Objects and Media at DHARTI (dhdharti.in), work as a transcriber with The Canterbury Tales Project, as a Liaison with The Association for Computers and the Humanities | (ach.org) and recently have had the honour to launch Electronic Literature India with the help of my amazing peers (@ELitIndia).
