GES Bio: Emily Murphy




I am a second year Ph.D. student, and my primary areas of interest are the modernist period, representations of mental illness, literary collaboration, celebrity, and public discourses of femininity. I have a particular allegiance to DH methodologies and their potential to support and enable contemporary academic collaboration. I make excellent pies and I love my bicycle like it’s my child.


I hold a B.A. in English Literature (Hons.), French Language and Literature (Major), and Applied Ethics (Minor) from the University of Victoria, and an M.A. in English and Film Studies from the University of Alberta.
