Beth Seltzer is a PhD candidate in Temple University's English program. She also explores the tools and methodologies of textual analysis in Temple's Digital Scholarship Center. Her dissertation focuses on the new ways of managing information which rose in the mid-Victorian era—railway timetables, telegraph messages and codes, bibliographic systems and serialization—and examines them alongside detective fiction. Her research and her digital work both explore questions of how we process and organize information, and how we get from facts to meaning.
