Women and Charity in Spain 1786-1939

Posted by Elizabeth Lewis on November 11, 2011

Still very much in its development stages, the project explores how Spanish women understood and represented their charitable work from the late-Enlightenment period through the end of the Spanish Civil War and the early part of the Franco dictatorship.

BRANCH: Britain, Representation and Nineteenth-Century History

Posted by Dino Felluga on August 29, 2011

To date, there is no open-access central resource for the study of 19th-century history and culture. Each such anthology is proprietary, often with password-protected web sites that accompany the hard-copy books. What is required is a website that provides this information in a free, expansive, searchable, reliable, peer-reviewed, easy-to-use format. I am creating a central resource for high school and university teachers seeking a comprehensive overview of the period 1789-1910.

Bulgarian dialectology as a living tradition

Posted by Quinn Dombrowski on August 2, 2011

This project features transcriptions, translations, and a linguistic analysis of conversations with people from rural Bulgaria collected in the field during the 1990's and 2000's. Excerpts from the conversations are transcribed, along with full linguistic glosses. Users can also listen to and download mp3's of the source data. Salient dialectal traits are highlighted, and texts are also tagged for salient cultural traits. All word forms from the conversations have been aggregated into a glossary, and maps showing the distribution of linguistic and cultural traits are available.
