Scott Caddy’s research and teaching specializations include digital humanities, digital pedagogy, Victorian and Romantic literature, and the analysis of interpretation of novels. He is also interested in multimodal writing and teaching, especially as a tool for democratizing the writing and learning process. His current research focuses on the stylistic differences between literary outliers of canonical authors, as well as general literary outliers within Victorian and Romantic fiction. His current project explores how Charles Dickens’ The Mystery of Edwin Drood challenges conventional wisdom about the completion of a narrative and its reception by audiences across generations. He also is interested in how computational tools, such as stylometry and sentiment analysis, can change how literary scholars teach and study beyond the canon. Scott Caddy is developing a book project exploring the efficacy and efficiency of these tools with different sets of Victorian and Romantic fiction. He received his Ph.D. from Arizona State University, focusing on digital humanities and 19th-century British fiction.
