Jasmine Mulliken is Digital Production Associate for Stanford University Press’s Mellon-funded digital publishing initiative. In this role, she evaluates and advises on the technological components of the digital interactive scholarly projects the press publishes. She also coordinates the registration and archiving of these projects and advocates for open-access and open-source content and formats. She manages the delivery system for the published projects and their migration from development to hosting to archiving platforms. In addition, she manages the program’s blog at blog[dot]supDigital[dot]org.
Jasmine received her Ph.D. in English from the University of Texas at Austin in May 2011 and spent the following five years as Visiting Assistant Professor at Oklahoma State University teaching Intro to Lit, British Lit Survey (II), Honors Critical Analysis and Writing (with a focus on digital identity), and Freshman Composition.
She is the author and editor of the online Mapping Dubliners Project, an interactive critical and topographic resource examining the historical-political layers James Joyce embedded, through over 200 geographical references, into his 1914 Dubliners, a work many others argue lacks strong political critique. The project evolved out of a digital appendix to her dissertation, “From ‘Disentangling the Subtle Soul’ to ‘Ineluctable Modality’ : James Joyce’s Transmodal Techniques.”
This larger work examines James Joyce’s transmodal techniques in Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man, and Ulysses, arguing that by the process of “re-rendering,” Joyce employs the conventions of one artistic medium to create work in another medium. Furthermore, she explains, such instances of re-rendering can be best identified, analyzed, and illustrated by digital means.
Additional research interests include digital humanities, literacies, identities, and pedagogy; 20th-century British and American literature; and gaming. She also plays with poetry, participating in readings and slams, and dabbles in graphic design, making images and publicity materials for courses, lectures, events, and blogs.
