Encoding an On-Line Electronic Scholarly Edition and Implementing an XML Prototype

Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

The project aimed to program an on-line scholarly edition and implement an XML prototype meeting MLA’s guidelines for the electronic scholarly edition, and presenting full-text versions of all renditions to show evolution of a text to final states and devolution to original states. The first stage was to prepare a scholarly edition of William Wells Brown’s novel Clotel which provides the full text of all extant versions (those of 1853, 1860, 1864, and 1867) with explanatory annotation, textual-variant notes, and a scholarly apparatus.

Urban waterfront geoarchaeology in the Netherlands and the UK: a comparison

Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

The objectives of the project were:
1. To test the applicability of models of urban (waterfront) site formation and post-depositional modification developed in the UK in a wider north-west European context. If the models are applicable, to use them to interpret urban waterfront sequences in Utrecht, if not to produce new models for the town and other Dutch cities.
2. To establish relationships with Dutch colleagues which will enable both parties to develop their research in urban archaeology/geoarchaeology in a more informed manner.
