Welcome James E. Dobson!

Bloodroot is committed to a rotating editorial team. This year we
welcome James E. Dobson, a scholar of nineteenth and twentieth-century
American literature and digital studies. He has assisted with the
publication of the past three volumes of Bloodroot by typesetting the
text and is excited to now help select the content. He is the author
of several academic articles and two books, Modernity and
Autobiography in Nineteenth-Century America: Literary Representations
of Communication and Transportation Technologies (Palgrave, 2017) and
Critical Digital Humanities: The Search for a Methodology (Univ. of
Illinois Press, forthcoming). He has written about technology and
literary studies and computational methods for the past fifteen years
and has just begun a new project addressing the development of
computer vision. Dobson will be reading all of our non-fiction and
essay submissions, as well as the proposals for experimental forms or
digital projects.
