Poetry Beyond Text: Vision, Text and Cognition

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

This research project uses psychological, critical and creative methods to study how readers respond to the visual aspects of poetry. It involves specialists in English and Comparative Literature, Fine Art and Psychology. These include the shape of visual or concrete poetry (where words are arranged spatially in particular patterns on the page), the combination of poetry with images (in artists' books and prints), and the moving words and images found in digital poetry (a relatively new form of poetry which is usually web-based and often interactive).

Sharing Ancient Wisdoms (SAWS)

Posted by Paul Spence on February 25, 2015

The aim of the project is to use new technology to present and analyse the tradition of wisdom literatures in Greek and Arabic. Throughout antiquity and the middle ages collections of wise or useful sayings were created and circulated, as a practical response to the cost and inaccessibility of full texts in a manuscript age; the project will focus on those which collected moral and social advice. The compilation of these collections formed a crucial route by which ideas of reasonable behaviour and good conduct were disseminated over a huge area, and over many centuries.

Guide to Evagrius Ponticus

Posted by Joel Kalvesmaki on December 9, 2011

The Guide to Evagrius Ponticus provides definitive lists of Evagrius's works, of editions and translations of those works, and of studies related to his life and thought. The Guide includes an inventory of relevant ancient sources that refer to Evagrius and a display of imagery from the ancient world. Updated quarterly, the Guide will gradually introduce a manuscript checklist, images of manuscripts, transcriptions of those manuscripts, and open source critical editions of Evagrius's writings.
