Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies - DECIMA: The Digitally Encoded Census Information and Mapping Archive, and the Project for a Geo-Spatial and Sensory Digital Map of Renaissance Florence Find using OpenURL DECIMA: The Digitally Encoded Census Information and Mapping Archive, and the Project for a Geo-Spatial and Sensory Digital Map of Renaissance Florence In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: A project at the University of Toronto, with funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRCC), is developing a mapping tool that will allow for the spatial organization of early modern historical, cultural, and sensory materials. Called the Digitally Encoded Census Information and Mapping Archive (DECIMA), it uses Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software to map, house by house, a 1561-62 Florentine tax census onto one of the best city maps produced in the sixteenth century. This undertaking will allow scholars to understand the social geography of Renaissance Florence in dynamic ways, creating a highly adaptable ecosystem for the cultural analysis of a variety of problems and issues.

Revue Humanités numériques Humanités numériques est une revue francophone consacrée aux usages savants du numérique en sciences humaines et sociales. Cette revue veut offrir un lieu de réflexion, de débat scientifique et d’expression aux chercheurs et enseignants dont les travaux s’inscrivent dans le champ des humanités numériques. Elle s’adresse donc aux spécialistes des sciences humaines, des sciences sociales et des disciplines liées aux technologies de l’information, ainsi qu’à tous ceux qui se sentent concernés par les transformations numériques des savoirs. Humanités numériques est une revue numérique ouverte, à la fois par sa volonté de représenter la diversité des points de vue et par son choix d’une publication en open access. La rencontre des sciences de l’homme et de la société avec le calcul, avec l’informatique et avec la culture numérique se rattache à plus d’un demi-siècle de recherches et, au delà, aux métamorphoses millénaires des technologies de l’information.

CDRH Articles and Resources | Best Practices Recommendations for Digital Humanities Projects The Center for Digital Research in the Humanities (CDRH) recommends that digital research projects be based on international standards. Standards-based projects stand a greater chance of interoperating with similar sites, and are more likely to migrate successfully into new computing environments as file formats and standards change. A common early phase of digital research may involve building a Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) prototype to serve as an illustration or proof of concept. XML is an internationally adopted encoding standard that describes data. Another advantage of XML is that it facilitates the separation of content from design. If XML is beyond the reach of a small project, the Extensible Hypertext Markup Language (XHTML) may be an appropriate interim solution. TIFF and JPEG image file formats are advantageous in that they are not proprietary and are widely supported in many applications. Overviews of basic principles.

(286) Standardization versus Mapping: Some considerations on CIDOC-CRM extension | Andrea D'Andrea Andrea d'Andrea, Università degli Studi di Napoli l'Orientale, Italy Standardization and sharing data are the key works in archaeological computing agenda. In fact only apparently we have many digital resources available. Different formats, systems and structures make difficult to access to different archaeological repositories. Announcements and messages - MARC 2012 Conference A beginning set of questions for this conference arises from the very projects all of the conference participants' work as individuals (and as individual teams) represent. A person only needs to quickly peruse these projects' titles and descriptions to notice an overarching interest in space, whether that interest is registered through the use of a spatial metaphor or in their objects of study -- or both. The Digital Mappaemundi project, Mapping Gothic France project, and Architectures of the Book project are striking examples, but I wager every presenter's work is informed by a sense of the space of the digital in some way. Another way of coming at these questions would be to use Michel De Certeau's distinction between an itinerary/tour and a map: the former being generally linear and a matter of "operations" and "going" (walk X miles and turn right at the Tabard Inn); the latter having more to do with arrangements and "seeing" (as opposed to "going").

Manifeste des Digital humanities – THATCamp Paris Contexte Nous, acteurs ou observateurs des digital humanities (humanités numériques) nous sommes réunis à Paris lors du THATCamp des 18 et 19 mai 2010. Au cours de ces deux journées, nous avons discuté, échangé, réfléchi ensemble à ce que sont les digital humanities et tenté d’imaginer et d’inventer ce qu’elles pourraient devenir. À l’issue de ces deux jours qui ne sont qu’une étape, nous proposons aux communautés de recherche et à tous ceux qui participent à la création, à l’édition, à la valorisation ou à la conservation des savoirs un manifeste des digital humanities. I. 1. 2. 3. II. 4. – que se sont multipliées les expérimentations dans le domaine du numérique en Sciences humaines et sociales depuis un demi-siècle. – que le numérique induit une présence plus forte des contraintes techniques et donc économiques dans la recherche ; que cette contrainte est une opportunité pour faire évoluer le travail collectif ; III. 5. 6. 7. 8. IV. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. Rejoignez-nous !

Computational Culture Looking after our heritage - Archaeology Review A review into how Historic Scotland supports, funds and utilises archaeology was concluded in early 2012. It looked at the scope of the archaeology work the agency commissions how it supports projects across the country and how the resulting evidence is used in our understanding of our history, the properties in our care and the way we present information to visitors. By delivering the review’s recommendations Historic Scotland will develop its role to champion the archaeology sector. A dedicated forum to represent the sector and influence related policy will be created in due course. Archaeology Review 2012 [PDF, 270 KB] For more information contact on Creative approaches for moving forward The final aim for the current project is to try and find the most appropriate outcome for each of the projects on the ‘inactive’ list, with the objective of clearing all projects.

Digital Humanities Spotlight: 7 Important Digitization Projects by Maria Popova From Darwin’s marginalia to Voltaire’s correspondence, or what Dalí’s controversial World’s Fair pavilion has to do with digital myopia. Despite our remarkable technological progress in the past century and the growth of digital culture in the past decade, a large portion of humanity’s richest cultural heritage remains buried in analog archives. Bridging the disconnect is a fledgling discipline known as the Digital Humanities, bringing online historical materials and using technologies like infrared scans, geolocation mapping, and optical character recognition to enrich these resources with related information or make entirely new discoveries about them. As Europe’s digital libraries open up their APIs, techno-dystopian pundits lament that these efforts diminish “the mystery of history,” but such views are myopic and plagued by unnecessary nostalgia for a time when knowledge was confined to the privileged cultural elite.

What is the Spatial Turn? · Spatial Humanities What is a turn? Humanities scholars speak of a quantitative turn in history in the 1960s, a linguistic and cultural turn of the 1980s in history and literature, and even more recently an animal turn. Beyond the academy, to turn implies retrospection, a process of stopping in the road and glancing backwards at the way by which one has come. May the weary traveler turn from life's dusty road and in the wayside shade, out of this clear, cool fountain drink, and rest “Landscape turns” and “spatial turns” are referred to throughout the academic disciplines, often with reference to GIS and the neogeography revolution that puts mapping within the grasp of every high-school student. By “turning” we propose a backwards glance at the reasons why travelers from so many disciplines came to be here, fixated upon landscape, together. Beyond the academy, GIS opened questions of vertigo-inspiring scale. The spatial turn represents the impulse to position these new tools against old questions.

Humanités numériques Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Exemple de recherche en humanités numériques : répertoire d'archives[1] sous forme d'analyse de réseau. Elles se caractérisent par des méthodes et des pratiques liées à l'utilisation des outils numériques, en ligne et hors ligne, ainsi que par la volonté de prendre en compte les nouveaux contenus numériques, au même titre que des objets d'étude plus traditionnels. Les humanités numériques s'enracinent souvent d'une façon explicite dans un mouvement en faveur de la diffusion, du partage et de la valorisation du savoir. Définition[modifier | modifier le code] Manifeste des Digital Humanities - FR Les humanités numériques peuvent être définies comme l'application du « savoir-faire des technologies de l'information [et de l'informatique] aux questions de sciences humaines et sociales »[3]. « 1. Il arrive que les humanités numériques soient assimilées à l'« humanisme numérique » que propose Milad Doueihi dans Pour un humanisme numérique (2011).
