Paul Fyfe is associate professor in the Department of English and coordinator of NC State's Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities. His research and teaching areas include British Victorian literature, the history of print and communications media, and a broad spectrum of digital humanities practices including cultural heritage visualization, content mining, digital pedagogy, and scholarly communications. He has published on Victorian studies topics including the books By Accident or Design: Writing the Victorian Metropolis (Oxford UP, 2015) as well as Victoria’s Lost Pavilion: From Nineteenth-Century Aesthetics to Digital Humanities (Palgrave Macmillan, forthcoming 2016), co-authored with an interdisciplinary team working on a virtual model of that building. He is currently pursuing analytics work on digitized nineteenth-century newspapers as well as studies of material texts from the Victorian era, supported by an Andrew S. Mellon Fellowship in Critical Bibliography at Rare Book School.
I am honored to join the Department of Communication at North Carolina State University as Assistant Professor of Digital Media. Prior to joining NC State, I worked as as a post-doctoral fellow on the Virtual Environments Real User Study (VERUS). VERUS, led by SRI International, was a multi-site, interdisciplinary research program sponsored by the US government. It involved an innovative and collaborative mixture of qualitative and quantitative approaches, applied to the study of connections between avatars in virtual environments such as World of Warcraft and Second Life, and their real world users.
