Kanon

Posted by Zachary Davis on January 25, 2012

We are building a social digital library where it is easy to discover, enjoy and learn about art and literature. We will use crowdsourcing and editorial curation to provide relevant information and search results to users. We will begin with public domain content from Gutenberg and other sources. We would be very grateful for any assistance and consulting from individuals with knowledge and expertise in digital humanities initiatives. Please feel free to write me at zacharysdavis@gmail.com or reach me on skype at zacharysdavis. Thank you!

See our projects list at http://www.dhinitiative.org/projects/

DHi challenges the ways in which teachers and students interact, use, and create digital collections (archival holdings) through the design and implementation of new digital tools.

Giacomo Leopardi's Zibaldone: a hypertext research platform

Posted by Silvia Stoyanova on January 11, 2012

Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837) is one of Italy’s most acclaimed poets and intellectuals, whose interpretation of the crisis of modernity gained him recognition already among his 19th century contemporaries Schopenhauer and Nietzsche, but it was not until the publication of his intellectual diary, the Zibaldone, at the turn of the 20th century that Leopardi’s thought began to reveal its depths and to gather due critical attention.

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.
