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.

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.

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 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.

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.

The Global Shakespeares Video & Performance Archive is a collaborative project providing online access to performances of Shakespeare from many parts of the world as well as essays and metadata provided by scholars and educators in the field. The idea that Shakespeare is a global author has taken many forms since the building of the Globe playhouse.
