Megan Ward teaches and researches in the fields of Victorian literature and culture and digital humanities, with interests in narrative theory, material culture, the history of technology, and class and gender studies. Her current book project, Human Reproductions: Victorian Realist Character and Artificial Intelligence, argues that the critical history of Victorian character has been shaped by the emergence of artificial intelligence in the twentieth century. Her essays on realism and technology have appeared in Studies in English Literature 1500-1900, Configurations, and Victorian Periodicals Review. She is also Associate Director of Livingstone Online, an open-access digital archive of the Victorian explorer David Livingstone, which is currently funded by two NEH grants. Ward has particular interests in the materiality of digital objects and in Livingstone’s diaries as a form of data curation. She holds an M.A. and Ph.D. from Rutgers University, an M.Phil. from Oxford University, and B.A. from Lawrence University.
