- Alan Galey is Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto, where he also teaches in the collaborative program in Book History and Print Culture. After completing his PhD in 2006 with a thesis titled "The Shakespearean Archive: Information's Cultural Work from Early Modern Print to the Electronic New Variorum" (U Western Ontario, Dept. of English), he held a two-year postdoctoral fellowship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada for a project titled "Visualizing Editions: Interface Research and Design for Electronic Texts in the Humanities" (U Alberta, Dept. of English and Film Studies). In 2008 he began his current position at the University of Toronto, where his research focuses on intersections between textual scholarship and digital technologies, especially in the context of theories of the archive and the history of scholarly editing. He has published on these topics articles in journals such as Early Modern Literary Studies, Archiv für das Studium der neueren Sprachen und Literaturen, and College Literature, and co-edited special issues of Shakespeare: the Journal of the British Shakespeare Association ("Reinventing Digital Shakespeare") and TEXT Technology ("Digital Humanities and the Networked Citizen"). He has presented conference papers linking textual scholarship, book history, and digital technology at gatherings of the Modern Language Association, the Society for Textual Scholarship, the Shakespeare Association of America, the Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society, the Society for Digital Humanities, the Renaissance Society of America, the International Congress on Medieval Studies, and the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading, and Publishing, among others. He has also given invited lectures at the Folger Shakespeare Library, Northwestern University, Texas A&M University, the University of Toronto, the University of Victoria, and Loyola University. He is a member of the Textual Studies team on the Implementing New Knowlege Environments project (inke.ca).
