Documenting Culture

Posted by Emily Zeamer on April 26, 2013

This course was taught in 2012-13 in collaboration with the Fowler Museum of Cultural History and the Department of World Arts and Cultures at UCLA.

The first half of the 2-quarter course involved UCLA students in field research with LA-based artists and creative communities, to create digital documentary works using Vimeo, Zeega, and other tools, for public exhibition via the website www.documentingculture.com. In the second quarter, students continued fieldwork, creating a short documentary film based on their subject

The Writing Studies Tree

Posted by Amanda Licastro on January 30, 2013

The Writing Studies Tree (writingstudiestree.org) – an online, open-access, interactive database of individual scholars, educational institutions, and the disciplinary movements that connect them – offers an “academic genealogy” for the field of writing studies that serves as a model for visualizing the social history of humanities disciplines. Through a fixed data structure that gives open editing privileges to thousands of members, the site aggregates collective visualizations of the field, presenting its history anew and enabling scholars to identify patterns and movements in new ways.

Adapting Modernism (tentative)

Posted by Joseph Fruscione on January 7, 2013

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.

Collaborative classroom theme sighting tool, to be named

Posted by Tonya Howe on November 5, 2012

I am interested in collaborators to help brainstorm and draft a grant proposal for project funding--or, just for building! My basic idea is as follows: a mobile reading application that will allow users to note the appearance of selected textual patterns. I am not thinking of a robust annotation tool, as there are projects devoted to just that.
