Peter N Miller

I work on the history of historical research, anchored mostly in the early modern period, but now able to reach towards the twentieth century. I'm interested in the possibilities offered by digital scholarship to escape some of the problems of grammar's linearity that all of us experience as writers. The possibility, for instance, of having two very different ways of telling the same story, and showing your readers the stakes of choosing one or another. I'm also interested because, I think rightly, some of the phenomena of scholarship in the early modern period are actually reproduced in the digital world. And, finally, as Dean of a graduate research institute that studies things, I'm keenly aware of how much we can do in this area to really establish models for larger, but also more club-footed institutions.
