Dr. Tielke Uvin

Dr. Tielke Uvin researches 18th-century print culture and publishing history. Her PhD project "Cheap Print and Mass Instruction: Isaac Watts's Divine Songs ​and the Dissemination of Literary Culture, 1715-ca. 1835" examined the role of cheap reprints in the canonisation of the work of Isaac Watts. Tielke is currently preparing a postdoctoral project in which she hopes to expand her earlier research in order to provide a more general revision of canonisation processes. She is especially interested in the ways in which Digital Humanities can facilitate large-scale book-historical research.
