Barbara HuiA former computer applications developer, Barbara Hui is at present a doctoral student in Comparative Literature at UCLA. Her dissertation looks at the complex global networks at play in the historical fiction of a handful of twentieth-century German-language authors. Methodologically, she utilizes traditional close-reading techniques alongside a new media mapping tool of her own design to examine these texts. While at UCLA she has worked as programmer and literary specialist on several digital humanities projects. She has also presented widely on literature and media at both academic and technical conferences.
