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.

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.

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.

Alcott Archive

Posted by Gregory Eiselein on November 13, 2011

We are interested in the creation of an online "Alcott Archive," a site for scholarly editions of the works of Louisa May Alcott, for personal papers related to Alcott and her circle (including her father Bronson), for scholarship and reference related to the study of Alcott, her writings, career and cultural context. The site would be a one-stop location to access all of Alcott's texts from the well-known (such as Little Women) to the recently re-discovered or uncollected or out-of-print.

The Pulp Magazines Project

Posted by Patrick Scott Belk on November 13, 2011

The Pulp Magazines Project is an open-access digital archive dedicated to the study and preservation of one of the twentieth century's most influential literary and artistic forms: the all-fiction pulpwood magazine. The Project also provides information on the history of this important but long neglected medium, along with biographies of pulp authors, artists, and their publishers.

Introducing Research and Collaboration Methods to Undergraduate and Graduate Students

Posted by Elizabeth Cornell on November 12, 2011

Essentially, I'm designing a research methods class / workshop for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as researchers that introduces them to the many rich digital tools available to the humanities. The aim, however, is not to diminish the importance of text-only papers or books in favor of showstoppers filled with links and videos.

Arab Film Heritage Project

Posted by Matthew Epler on November 12, 2011

We have found over 800 cans of film in Amman, Jordan! With a small grant from King Abdullah, we were able to digitize 10 of them and found some very interesting content. The most exciting find was a film produced in Palestine in 1968, just after the Six-Day war. It has been confirmed by scholars and persons affiliated with the PLO that this film is the only surviving copy from what was the PLO film archive before it disappeared in 1985.
