The Stockton Postcolonial Studies Project

Posted by Adeline Koh on January 10, 2012

The Stockton Postcolonial Studies Project is an ongoing digital research project that explores different theoretical arenas within postcolonial studies. “Postcolonial Studies” encapsulates a series of theories and methodologies that have impacted disciplines as diverse as history, literature, anthropology, sociology and political economics. Its roots stem from an intellectual imperative to radically reinterpret the histories, cultures and representation of formerly colonized peoples, a call pioneered in the 1980s by critics such as Edward Said, V.Y.

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.

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.

SceneDEX - American Music Scenes Index

Posted by Micah Vandegrift on November 17, 2011

This is a project that has not been started yet. It is a personal and academic interest of mine, and I'd like to gather a group of collaborators to get it started. There are plenty of archives that already exist that hold these sorts of objects and materials - I'd like to create a webspace to cull these collections and provide a way for materials to be submitted, organized and archived.

Progetto Sonzogno

Posted by Silvia Valisa on November 13, 2011

This is a rough introduction to my inventory and analysis project for the production of Italian publisher Sonzogno between 1800 and 1943.
The data now available on the site consists of two Outlook Databases. They list the holdings of the Biblioteca Storica Sonzogno as inventoried by two archivists for the Italian publisher RCS, who is the current owner of the Sonzogno catalogue.
