Michael E. Sinatra is an associate professor of English at the Université de Montréal. His current SSHRC-funded research is on Leigh Hunt, one of the key figures of the first half of the nineteenth century in England. This project considers how Hunt both contributed to the media through his work in various newspapers and journals, as well as himself being the focus of media attention by virtue of his literary friendships (Byron, Shelley, Dickens, Carlyle). A web component to this project underscores further the technological nature of media, both then and now. Eberle-Sinatra is also the co-founding editor, with Thomas Crochunis, of British Women Playwrights around 1800, a website launched in December 1998 which supports the work of scholars of British literature and culture engaged in exploring how electronic editing and resources can enhance scholarship about this segment of dramaturgical history (1780-1830).
