Digital Humanities Initiative, Hamilton College

Posted by Janet Thomas Simons on January 20, 2012

The Digital Humanities Initiative (DHi) at Hamilton College is a collaboratory – digital parlance for a research and teaching collaboration – where new media and computing technologies are used to promote humanities-based teaching, research, and scholarship across the liberal arts. 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.

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.
