Victorian Social Reform: A Bibliography of the Published Papers of the Social Science Association 1857-86

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

The National Association for the Promotion of Social Science, known as the Social Science Association, was an influential forum for the development of social policy between the 1850s and 1880s to which many notable Victorians gave papers and addresses. Leading politicians, intellectuals, bureaucrats, churchmen and businessmen were among its members. It was influential in many different areas - legal reform, penal policy, education, public health and commercial relations – and provides vivid insight into Victorian social and institutional development.

Law making in Wales: an on-line analysis

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

On 1 July 1999 the National Assembly for Wales came into existence. Its functions were, and continue to be, transferred by Orders in Council and Acts of Parliament. This is a unique arrangement under the various devolution settlements introduced in the UK at this time. A basic element of the rule of law is that citizens can access the law. It was not apparent to the project team that the National Assembly had any plans to make its functions routinely accessible to any user, whether these were transferred to it, or functions that it legislated for itself under its statutory powers.

The Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music (DIAMM)

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

The purpose of the Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music (DIAMM) is to obtain and archive directly-captured digital images of European sources of medieval polyphonic music. Where there is damage that makes these sources difficult to read, levels of digital restoration are also undertaken on copies of the original images to improve legibility and scholarly access. The project has created a new permanent electronic archive of these images, both to facilitate detailed study of this music and its sources, and to assure their permanent preservation.

ICTGuides

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

The ICTGuides project is now incorporated within this project (arts-humanities.net).

Two developments gave birth to the ICTGuides database: an increase in the use of ICT in arts and humanities research and an awareness that information on how ICT is used in arts-humanities research is not readily available online. The resulting disparity was largely seen to have detrimental effects on ICT-based scholarship as sharing computational expertise among scholars is a precursor to promoting innovation within the field.

Silchester insula IX

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

The project's aim is the capture, storage and manipulation of data from a long-term archaeological excavation (1997 and continuing) of insula ix of the Iron Age and Roman town of Silchester, Hampshire (Calleva Atrebatum). The data comprise a variety of linked excavation and finds records which are stored on the Integrated Archaeological Database (IADB). The latter is a key tool for the post-excavation analysis of this complex, stratified site for which publication is planned in both printed and web-based formats.

Digital Performance Archive

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

"The Digital Performance Archive (DPA) traces the rapid developments taking place which combine performance activity with new digital technologies - from live theatre and dance productions that incorporate digital projections, to performances that take place on the computer-screen via webcasts and interactive virtual environments. The Archive also collates examples of how computer technologies are being used to create, document or analyse performance - from software applications for choreography and theatre design to specialist websites, e-zines and CD-ROMs.

The Reading Experience Database 1450-1945 (RED)

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

The aim of this project is to investigate how and why reading as an individual and social practice has changed over the period 1450 to 1945, in terms of who readers were; how they accessed reading material; what, where, and how they read; and how they responded to what they read. Supported by funding from AHRC and from The Open University, the central achievement of the project to date has been the establishment of The Reading Experience Database (RED) at The Open University.
