About

Johnston, Carrie, SMU, Faculty, Dedman College of Humanities and Science

I am the Digital Humanities Research Designer in Wake Forest University’s Z. Smith Reynolds Library and a Part-time Assistant Professor in the Wake Forest English department. As the DH Research Designer, I collaborate with colleagues across disciplines to develop scholarly digital projects through humanistic inquiry. My teaching and research consider the ways that technology has historically informed women’s literary labor, and my work has appeared in American QuarterlyStudies in the Novel, College Literature, and the edited collection, Humans at Work in the Digital Age: Forms of Digital Textual Labor. I hold a PhD in English literature from Southern Methodist University, where I became interested in digital humanities through a partnership with SMU Central University Libraries to create a digital collection of rare Atchison, Topeka, & Santa Fe Railroad advertisements and ephemera.
