The members of the Trinity College Dublin Digital Humanities Steering Committee are delighted to announce that Halila Bayramova has joined the committee as the Digital Humanities Postgraduate Student Representative. Halila is a PhD student in the School of English an a recipient of TCD Postgraduate Studentship. She obtained her BA in English Philology from the Azerbaijan University of Languages and an MA in English Linguistics and Literature from the University of Antwerp. As the DH@TCD Postgraduate Representative she looks forward to sharing her ideas with the Postgraduate community and hopes to encourage a better understanding of Digital Humanities as well as its potential to transform research in the humanities.
Halila’s doctoral research, titled “Towards a Digital Genetic Edition of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake II.2″, is interdisciplinary in nature and deals with modern manuscripts, genetic criticism, digital editing, and textual scholarship. Her research focuses on the idiosyncrasies of Joyce’s writing techniques during the composition of the Wake and how they determine the architecture of digital edition involving Finnegans Wake. The aim of this research is to understand how compositional style impacts editorial decisions in data modelling and digital representation of the genesis of modern literary works. The overarching objective is to encourage discussion where both digital editing and Finnegans Wake scholarship can coexist without compromising each other’s respective relevance.
We look forward to working with Halila to further develop and assist the Postgraduate Digital Humanities Community as Trinity College Dublin and beyond. If you would like to discuss DH@TCD with Halila, her contact details are as follows:
