Mapping At The Mountains of Madness

Posted by Matt Mckinley on December 14, 2016

This story map is an attempt to geographically chart both the real fictional locations detailed in Lovecraft's novella, At the Mountains of Madness.

In At The Mountains of Madness, Lovecraft's first-person writing style lends the reader an account of the names and coordinates of both real and imagined places, displaying the overlap between Lovecraft's fictional universe and our human world.

Public Domain Harlem Shadows

Posted by Chris Forster on July 4, 2012

I am trying to put together an electronic edition of Claude McKay's 1922 collection of poems. There are already a number of different sources for page images (Google Books, the Internet Archive); I'd like to use these to build a solid, well-edited, and lightly marked up TEI edition of the collection, from which we could generate a number of output formats (HTML, ePub, PDF). In addition to the text of McKay's poems itself, the goal would be a sort of "Norton Critical Edition" with a well edited text and histories of the poems with appropriate annotations.

Denison Digital Archive

Posted by Jacqueline Wernimont on January 3, 2012

We are currently at the planning stage for a feminist digital archive. The archival material derives from the Ella Strong Denison library, which includes significant collections of suffragette ephemera, 19th century women’s work, book arts from antiquity to the present, and an extensive interdisciplinary teaching collection. We hope to develop a program that utilizes the archive as an opportunity to explore a range of questions within digital humanities. In particular, we are interested in developing a specifically feminist encoding paradigm that will allow us to integrate feminist theoretical insights on archival formation, digital technology, and user interfaces. We also plan to develop a digital archive that maximizes the pedagogical impact of digitizing the Denison materials.

Edna St. Vincent Millay Personal Library Catalog

Posted by Amanda French on December 1, 2011

When Edna St. Vincent Millay died in 1950, her sister Norma moved in to her home, called Steepletop, in Austerlitz, NY. Ever since 1950, Millay's personal library has remained relatively undisturbed. Over the years, one or two casual inventories of the books were made, but they are filled with errors, and they've never been published nor put into digital form. This project aims to create an accurate digital catalog of the library and to record as much as possible of the inscriptions and marginalia in the works.
