Stephen Grandchamp is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Humanities at the University of Maine at Farmington, where he teaches courses in the digital humanities, British literature, and hip hop. He also is the Co-Director of the New Commons Project, a public humanities initiative aimed at creating public discussions about the value of the humanities. Prior to his Postdoctoral Fellowship at UMF, he served as Visiting Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities at Illinois Wesleyan University for the 2017-18 academic year. His current book project, Accounting for Failure: Arrested Development and the British Bildungsroman, 1805-1891, examines failure as a counterpoint to pervasive notions of success and development across nineteenth-century narrative genres. His research also includes bibliometric analysis of literary texts and the integration of streaming media into the literature classroom.
