Research/Career Interests: 

Megan Ward teaches and researches in the fields of Victorian literature and culture and the digital humanities, with interests in narrative theory, the history of the novel, material culture, the history of technology. Her current book project, Seeming Human: Victorian Realist Character and Artificial Intelligence (The Ohio State University Press, 2018), argues that early artificial intelligence gives us a theory of verisimilitude that helps us re-evaluate the realism of Victorian fictional characters. Her essays on realism and technology have appeared in Studies in English Literature 1500-1900Configurations, Genre, and other journals. She is also Co-Director of Livingstone Online, an NEH-funded digital archive of the Victorian explorer David Livingstone.
