Basics of Mapping for the Digital Humanities – IDRE Sandbox

What is in a map? How do you map?” In the Humanities, mapping can be defined in so many different ways, there is no easy answer to these questions. In fact, your research can dictate the parameter of choices that define your map. “Everything is related to everything else, but near things are more related than distant things.”

Waldo Tobler’s statement defines his first law of geography, in ways stating the obvious correlation between objects in space, paving the foundation behind spatial dependencies. As mentioned at the top of the syllabus for this course, space and time are dimensions that are forever intertwined due to their ontological nature. Minard The representation of 3 dimensional space onto a flat, 2 dimensional platform–a map–brings with it many challenges and compromises (e.g. projection systems).

"Toy Chest" collects online or downloadable software tools and thinking toys that humanities students and others without programming skills (but with basic computer and Internet literacy) can use to create interesting projects.

Most of the tools gathered here are free or relatively inexpensive (exceptions: items that are expensive but can be used on a free trial basis). Also on this site are "paradigms"--books, essays, digital projects, etc. --that illustrate the kinds of humanities projects that these thinking tools/toys might help create.

Abstracts, American University of Paris, March 2017 – David Joseph Wrisley

From a general discussion of some exemplary projects carried out in small colleges by teams of faculty, students, librarians and technologists, in what might be called the humanities “laboratory” (Lane), I will chart how digital methods can evolve from course-embedded experiments to larger research projects. I hope to show that such projects, in both process and product, embody the values of a liberal arts education in the 21st century: a well-rounded education, social and ethical awareness and creative, multidisciplinary synthesis.

Yes! You do not need an account to create a timemap - they can be created anonymously and will have all the same features and shareability of normal timemaps.

TypeWright1 is a tool for correcting the text-version of a document made up of page images.

18thConnect - TypeWright

These text-versions are crucially necessary: they are what enables full-text searching, datamining, preserving, and curating2 texts of historical importance. Right now, the text running behind the page images of these texts has been mechanically typed,3 leaving behind errors that need to be corrected by human eyes and hands. Our contracts with Gale and Proquest allow any person or group who corrects a text to be given that text when finished correcting it to use as they wish. We will give you the document in either plain text or TEI-encoded formats, or both, for texting mining or to build a digital edition that can be submitted to 18thConnect for peer review. Additionally, the corrected text will go back to Gale and Proquest to improve our capacities for research using their products.

CUNY Academic Commons Wiki Archive. Les digital humanities et les bibliothèques. Pour l’historien du religieux Milad Doueihi, auteur de La grande conversion numérique, les sciences humaines et sociales (SHS) sont les grandes absentes du débat autour de l’impact du numérique sur nos sociétés.

Pour lui, l’environnement numérique est actuellement en crise, car il s’est « appuyé jusqu’ici sur certains éléments de la culture imprimée » qui ne sont plus adaptés à ces nouvelles pratiques. Un nouveau « savoir-lire » fait son apparition : le savoir-lire numérique 1. Pour Doueihi, ce nouvel environnement est caractérisé par une « culture du changement rapide et de l’adaptabilité ». Ce changement est principalement contrôlé par les spécialistes de la technologie qui imposent leurs normes et leurs logiques au public. Histoire et esquisse de définition Définir les digital humanities n’est pas une tâche aisée.
