A web documentary by Ashley Maynor. Mapping the Trade of the Société Typographique de Neuchâtel, 1769-1794. The French Book Trade in Enlightenment Europe (FBTEE) project is a digital humanities project of international significance mapping the production, marketing, dissemination, policing, and reception of books (and hence ideas) in the late eighteenth century.

Mapping the Trade of the Société Typographique de Neuchâtel, 1769-1794

It aims to bring together and make interoperable and publicly available in a single digital resource multiple historical bibliometric databases. The first of these databases is now available on line via this site. A second stage of the project’s development is being funded by the Australian Research Council and Western Sydney University, where the project is now based. For details of this project and work in progress. Click here. The version of the FBTEE database currently online maps the trade of the Société Typographique de Neuchâtel (STN), a celebrated Swiss publishing house that operated between 1769 and 1794. This resource was publicly launched on 25 June 2012 and is freely available on this website. NULab for texts, maps and networks. Digital Research.

Digital Research

Sessions laws encompass all of the legislation passed in a single session of a state legislature, usually published annually or biennially. Journals and reports record the proceedings and at times the deliberations of the legislative sessions. About every ten years, many states published systematized compilations or revisions of all statutes currently then in force. Nineteenth century legislation is in the public domain, and thus many volumes have been digitized and posted by Google Books (or the Hathi Trust).

A Multilingual Lexicon for a Multilingual Discipline – #LexiconSE (beta) A Lexicon of Scholarly Editing The Babel of Scholarly Editing In November 2009, the topic of the annual conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship was Texts beyond Borders: Multilingualism and Textual Scholarship (19-21 November 2009).

A Multilingual Lexicon for a Multilingual Discipline – #LexiconSE (beta)

The logo of the conference was Peter Brueghel the Elder’s image of the Tower of Babel, the so-called little version (kept at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam). At this and following conferences, the need was expressed by several members of ESTS to create a lexicon of scholarly editing similar to undertakings in different disciplines and editorial traditions, and in different linguistic areas, a nice example being the French Dictionnaire de critique génétique (edited by Daniel Ferrer, Lydie Rauzier and Aurèle Crasson).

Given the divergence of traditions, languages and contexts, such an undertaking is almost ‘doomed to fail’ from the start – to quote Samuel Beckett. Welcome. Monk system for word search in handwritten manuscript collections. The Monk system is developed at the University of Groningen by a research group at the Artificial Intelligence institute ALICE, under supervision by prof. dr.

Monk system for word search in handwritten manuscript collections

Lambert Schomaker. In cooperation with the Dutch National Archive we have created methods for accessing historical archive collections which are difficult to process by traditional OCR methods, for example due to their historical character types or due to the fact that the material is handwritten. The system consists of two major components: (1) a setup for the storage and web-based annotation of scanned page images and parts thereof; (2) a set of (handwriting and text) recognition algorithms as well as retrieval and search methods. Exploring the trading of commodities in the 19th Century. AHA Getting Started in Digital History DH Project Survey. Mapping American History.

Introduction Mapping American History, a First Year Seminar, will challenge you to write, research, and analyze historical sources in increasingly sophisticated ways.

Mapping American History

You will constantly be writing and receiving feedback on your work from your peers, writing specialists, and your professors. The class project is designed to focus your attention on a single place, using that focus to see how that place has changed over time using a variety of sources and methods. This course will also give you a coherent sense of the history of Richmond. You will learn about the city's history and geography both through your readings and through our class project, in which you will write the history of a city street.

We bring writing, analysis, and the community in which we live together through mapping. Edward L. American Panorama.
