Poetess Archive

Posted by Laura Mandell on January 4, 2012

The Poetess Archive constitutes a resource for studying the literary history of popular British and American poetry. Much of it composed during what can be called the “bull market” of poetry's popularity(1), late eighteenth- and nineteenth-century popular poetry was often written in what came to be designated an "effeminate" style, whether written by men or women. Writings in the poetess tradition were disseminated in myriad collections: miscellanies, beauties, literary annuals, gift books. They achieved a place of prominence in virtually every middle-class household.

The Intermedial Zoom

Posted by Florentina Armaselu on November 17, 2011

The project focuses on the technique of zoom and its approaches across different media, from a comparative perspective. We are interested to compare the particularities of zooming in cartography, photography, film and textual materials, trying to identify patterns of expressivity on the level of meaning, aesthetic and cognitive reflection, and their possible uses in creating new digital paradigms.

Athena Ruby

Posted by Joel Kalvesmaki on November 14, 2011

Athena Ruby is a font for scholarly editions of Byzantine inscriptions, particularly those where transcribing the visual typology of the letters and symbols is critical, such as in seals and coins.

The glyph set covers the major ideal types of letterforms, ligatures, punctuation, and symbols found in inscriptions from the Byzantine cultural ambit, fourth through the fifteenth century. It currently supports the Latin and Greek alphabets.

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.
