Beyond Citation: Critical Thinking About Digital Research

Posted by Eileen Clancy on December 28, 2014

We want to be the "Missing Manual" for digital research collections. While the use of databases such as ProQuest’s Historical Newspapers or Gales’ Nineteenth Century Collections Online is common, these tools have largely escaped critique by traditional humanities scholars. Knowledge of the way proprietary databases work is limited because their structures and content are opaque. As a result, scholars may not be able to discover the provenance of documents or to understand why certain search results are returned.

Public Domain Harlem Shadows

Posted by Chris Forster on July 4, 2012

I am trying to put together an electronic edition of Claude McKay's 1922 collection of poems. There are already a number of different sources for page images (Google Books, the Internet Archive); I'd like to use these to build a solid, well-edited, and lightly marked up TEI edition of the collection, from which we could generate a number of output formats (HTML, ePub, PDF). In addition to the text of McKay's poems itself, the goal would be a sort of "Norton Critical Edition" with a well edited text and histories of the poems with appropriate annotations.

Modernist Versions Project

Posted by Modernist Versi... on June 21, 2012

The Modernist Versions Project (MVP) aims to advance the potential for comparative interpretations of modernist texts that exist in multiple forms by digitizing, collating, versioning, and visualizing them individually and in combination. Its primary mission is to enable new critical insights that are difficult without digital or computational approaches.
