Michael Sinatra named Co-Director of NINES

NINES is excited to announce that Michael Sinatra has been named Co-Director of NINES (https://nines.org), sharing the role with Andrew Stauffer of the University of Virginia. Based at the Université de Montreal, Sinatra is the founding editor of the open access e-journal ‘Romanticism on the Net’ (launched in February 1996) and the director of the Montreal-based interuniversity research center on Digital Humanities. This new executive arrangement for NINES will allow for increased collaborative opportunities between the U.S. and Canada and some promising new directions for digital nineteenth century studies. Launched in 2005 by Jerome McGann at the University of Virginia with the support of the Mellon Foundation, NINES is a scholarly organization devoted to forging links between the material archive of the nineteenth century and the digital research environment of the twenty-first. NINES is a founding member of ARC, the Advanced Research Consortium: http://idhmcmain.tamu.edu/arcgrant/
