Johannes Burgers Johannes Burgers is an assistant professor of English and Digital Humanities at Ashoka University, New Delhi. He is also an associate director for the Digital Yoknapatawpha (DY) project (http://faulkner.iath.virginia.edu/) – a collaborative, online resource for exploring William Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha fictions through deep maps, audio recordings, historical photographs, archival materials, and other visualizations. The portal was created by an international team of Faulkner scholars and educators with the support of technologists at the University of Virginia’s Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities. He provides critical commentaries for the site, and also designs new types of visualizations. This digital work has served as a wellspring for more traditional print scholarship in venues like Cultural Analytics, Mississippi Quarterly, and a forthcoming piece in The Norton Critical Edition of Absalom, Absalom!. More broadly, his digital scholarship is focused on rendering conceptual maps of fuzzy humanities data using GIS.
