About

I am an Instructional Assistant Professor of English at Texas A&M University specializing in Old and Middle English Literature, with strong research and teaching interests in the Digital Humanities. After serving as Associate Editor of the World Shakespeare Bibliography and as a member of the Center of Digital Humanities Research (CoDHR) Advisory Board, I transitioned to the Center of Digital Humanities Research where I will be the manager of the New Variorum Shakespeare Project.

My research centers on the connection between purgatory and punitive imprisonment in the Middle Ages. My book project looks at similarities in the representation of earthly and otherworldly carceral spaces in Old and Middle English literature. For more information, my recent CV is available here, or you can find me on Twitter @Torabik5.
