Whitney coordinates project editorial policy and digital publication through TEI-XML, FileMaker and Omeka systems.

She brings to her work at KHS previous experience on the Frederick Douglass Papers and the Santayana Edition, both at the Institute for American Thought at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. That work also brought her to KHS, giving her a taste of historical subject matter. Whitney holds a Master of Arts degree in English so it should come as no surprise that her time travel destination of choice would be “England in the spring of 1816 to try to have tea with Jane Austen while she is writing ‘Persuasion’.” She also is a certified documentary editor.
