A gathering of digital humanities projects and research

Final Project. Completed Final Projects Description and Guidelines For your final project, you will work with a group to create a web-based mini-site that explores and analyzes a dataset from multiple angles. Your mini-site must contain the following components: A full, annotated bibliography.A narrative of about 2,000 words that describes your research and findings about the topic you’ve been assigned. More on the Narrative Your visualizations should be enfolded into the narrative using the “splitting-a-sentence” strategy described by Alberto Cairo (and derived from Javier Zarracina) in these two videos (part 7 gives context; part 8 describes the strategy itself).

You may divide the narrative among various pages of your mini-site if you like. Like any satisfying narrative, yours should have a beginning, middle, and end, and a clear and coherent point.

Documenting the Now: Archiving Social Media for Generations to Come - University Libraries Washington University in St. Louis. Collaboration between three universities will develop DocNow, a tool to archive social media content posted during significant events A two-year, $517,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation will fund a project called “Documenting the Now: Supporting Scholarly Use and Preservation of Social Media Content.”

Washington University in St. Louis, the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) at the University of Maryland and the University of California, Riverside, are collaborators on the project. The project responds to the public’s use of social media for chronicling historically significant events as well as demand from scholars and archivists seeking a user-friendly means of collecting and preserving digital content. As part of the project, the three institutions are developing DocNow, a cloud-ready, open-source application that will be used for collecting tweets and their associated metadata and Web content.

By dannymillum Late 17th century view of London by William Hollar The Institute of Historical Research has been awarded a first-stage pass and development funding of £103,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a new interactive online resource tracing London’s history from the Roman period to the present day.

The Centre for Metropolitan History, working with the Victoria County History, is leading the development of this resource that will create a multi-layered map of London drawing upon a wide variety of maps and archival materials, currently held in different collections. A major element of the project will be to engage the public at borough level and city-wide, through crowd-sourcing, volunteer, schools and internship programmes, inviting them to upload photographs and personal histories.

Mapping the Republic of Letters. Open Folklore. About the project. The two main aims are (i) to produce empirical studies using three main types of source: written (archival, press, literary, diaries, etc.), individual and group interviews, visual records and evidence; (ii) to develop and test a theoretical and methodological approach to the study of relations between place and memory that may be applied in other contexts.

The objectives are to provide a much clearer understanding of place and memory in an urban context than has been available hitherto and to disseminate findings through appropriately diverse outputs. All these will be made available as resources to other researchers. Research Imperative and Context: Internationally, memory studies have proliferated in various disciplines over the past 20 years.

Relatively few studies, however, have defined their object clearly or made their presuppositions explicit, and this has justifiably made the ‘memory industry’ vulnerable to criticism. Projects | GLOBAL MIDDLE AGES. Understanding Shakespeare. Endangered Languages Project.
