HEURIST is a flexible Open Source data management system which allows any confident researcher or data manager to design, create, manage, analyse and publish richly-structured database(s) within hours, through a simple web interface, without need of programmers or consultants. It is aimed at a broad range of Humanities data, characterised by rich text, multimedia, relationships, categorisation, uncertain data, spatial and temporal information, and the need to work collaboratively while maintaining access control. It allows incremental changes in database structure - existing data are not affected - allowing projects to start small and simple and evolve as the research develops.
I'd like to start a digital project--part collaborative forum, part archive, part teaching tool--regarding adaptations and remediations of literary works. I'm not seeing this as a blog or compendium per se, but more as a diverse, interactive resource for teachers and students involved in courses featuring literary texts and adaptations of them (e.g, film, graphic novel, mashup, visual, etc.). Ideally, such a DH resource would aid us as scholars and as teachers, as well as aiding students in different kinds of courses.
The goal of Hamilton's Cinema and New Media Studies Program is to blend study in film history and theory while providing students opportunities to pursue their own artistic visions through the uses of new technology.
