Diane Jakacki is a Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow at the Georgia Institute of Technology currently teaching courses in popular culture and media studies.

Jakacki earned her PhD at the University of Waterloo. Her dissertation, "'Covetous to parley with so sweet a frontis-peece': Illustration in Early Modern English Play-Texts" analyzes patterns of visual rhetoric in the illustrated title pages of seventeenth-century English printed drama, examining publication practices, politics, and the relationship between the contemporary theatrical audience and the reading public.

She is also interested in multimedia theory and design, and the challenges inherent in adopting humanities computing methods for pedagogy and research projects. She has published an article on clues about theatrical practice in the Spanish Tragedy play-text title page illustration, co-authored a chapter on developing digital research tools for the Roman de la rose, and has submitted an edition of the Tudor interlude Wit and Science for publication by Broadview Press (to be published in 2011).
