David Lee Miller is Carolina Distinguished Professor of English and Comparative Literature and Director of the Center for Digital Humanities at the University of South Carolina. He joined the University in 2004 after teaching at the University of Alabama, where he designed and directed the Hudson Strode Program in Renaissance Studies, and at the University of Kentucky. His publications include The Poem’s Two Bodies: The Poetics of the 1590 Faerie Queene (Princeton, 1988); Dreams of the Burning Child: Sacrificial Sons and the Father’s Witness(Cornell, 2003); and a number of edited collections and scholarly articles. His honors include teaching awards at the University of Kentucky and at the University of South Carolina, along with fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Guggenheim Foundation.

A specialist in the literature of the English Renaissance, Professor Miller comes to Digital Humanities by way of his work for a six-volume edition of “The Collected Works of Edmund Spenser,” under contract to Oxford University Press. Starting in 2008, he led the initiative that resulted in the creation of the Center for Digital Humanities, and he has served as Director since its founding in 2010.
