Erin is a specialist on Anglo-Saxon heroic poetry and historical linguistics. She has taught at Monash University (Melbourne), University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin and Queen’s University Belfast. She is currently Lecturer in Anglo-Saxon Literature at Flinders University (Adelaide). She is a collaborator with the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the study of the History of Emotion and winner of the Faculty Prize for Excellence in Teaching. Her first monograph, In Enigmate: the history of a riddle from 400-1500, is forthcoming from Four Courts Press. After her PhD, she worked on two DH post-docs, The Psalms in Trinity at the Old Library at Trinity College Dublin, and The Psalms In Ireland Before 1600 based at Archbishop Marshes Library in Dublin. The aim of these projects was to provide context for the Faddan More Psalter (which had recently been discovered) by cataloguing and digitizing pre-modern psalmic material and providing a searchable database of psalmic marginalia.
Els De Paermentier is Assistant Professor in Medieval Diplomatics and Palaeography at Ghent University (Belgium). In 2010 she completed her PhD on the organisation of the comital chancery in the counties of Flanders and Hainaut (1191-1244). For her research she elaborated a computer-aided methodology to determine the editorial origin of charter texts. In 2012 she received a COST Action grant for a short term scientific mission at the Institut de Recherche et d’Histoire des Textes (IRHT) in Paris, where she examined the interoperability possibilities between the Belgian and French Latin source databases Diplomata Belgica and TELMA-databases (Traitement Électronique des Manuscrits et des Archives). Shortly afterwards she became a member of the COST Action Program IS1005: Medieval Europe – Medieval Cultures and Technological Resources, and joined the working group for the design of a virtual centre for medieval studies (VCMS) (2012-2015). Currently, she is a member of the advisory board of the online charter database Diplomata Belgica: The Diplomatic Sources from the Medieval Southern Low Countries and of the steering committee of the Ghent Centre for Digital Humanities (GhentCDH).
I have a Master’s degree in History of Medieval Art, obtained in 2013 at the University of Florence, Italy. For the past two years, I have been leading the NUME International Research Group, developing a digital network of scholars around the world, coordinating the organization of conferences on medieval studies, the publication of specialist studies, the creation of interdisciplinary events and digital projects (e.g. the 3D reconstruction of some Italian churches hit by an earthquake in 2016). I have published articles on History of Medieval Art in Italy and France, worked with scientific journals and attended international conferences. I have experience in networking management, editing and managing digital content: I would like to run for the Journal Associate Editor, News Feed Administrator or Facebook Administrator positions.
