Dr. Andie Silva is an Assistant Professor of English at York College (CUNY) in Jamaica, Queens, where she teaches British literature, digital humanities, and composition. Her work analyzes early modern non-authorial paratexts as a unique genre, evidence of unique user/maker relationships that remain relevance to digital projects and digital humanists. Dr. Silva’s research is located at the intersection of early modern and modern editorial practices, investigating cultural responses to new technologies and the development of popular culture. Her interests include History of the Book, digital humanities, and digital pedagogy.
Dr. Silva is currently working on a database, Printed Paratexts Online, which aims to catalogue non-authorial paratexts and track the life-cycle of books across markets (including both changes in printers and well as changes over new editions).
