The Consequences Of Framing Digital Humanities Tools As Easy To Use, 2018 University of Miami
The Consequences Of Framing Digital Humanities Tools As Easy To Use, Paige C. Morgan
Library Articles, Papers, and Presentations
This article examines the recurring ways in which some of the most popular DH tools are presented as easy to use. It argues that attempts to couch powerful tools in what is often false familiarity, directly undermines the goal of encouraging scholarly innovation and risk taking. The consequences of framing digital tools as either easy or more difficult shapes the relationship between librarians and the students and faculty whose research they support, and, more broadly, the role and viability of libraries as spaces devoted to skill acquisition.
The Journey Of An Emotional Black Boy, 2018 Ursinus College
The Journey Of An Emotional Black Boy, Alonzo Elias
Philosophy Summer Fellows
The title of my project is "Emotional Nigga" a.k.a. "Emotional Black Boy" because people would be comfortable if I called it so. The audience for this project may want to think of it this way. The title I chose is meant to express the struggles I faced in my journey to self-awareness. I decided to share my story through fifteen topics, which have brought me a better understanding of myself and will hopefully help the audience as well. These topics are Self-Love, Prelude: Intimacy and Attachment Theory, Relationships, Sex, Beauty, Sexuality, Love, Self-Love, Spirituality, Religion, Astrology, Psychology, Self-Care ...
Crowdsourcing The Georeferencing Of Historical Pictures, 2018 University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland
Crowdsourcing The Georeferencing Of Historical Pictures, Timothée Produit, Nicolas Blanc, Sarah Composto, Jens Ingensand, Loic Furhoff
Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) Conference Proceedings
Countless organizations own archive pictures which are not used due to the difficulty of localizing them. Only the participation of volunteers can help to identify the image content. Through an accessible web interface called smapshot, citizens are able to georeference historical images without any prior specific competence. To avoid the volunteers to face the complexity of 3D digitization and navigation, we implemented a state of the art photogrammetry camera orientation algorithm in the platform. Currently several thousand images from all around Switzerland have been georeferenced by the crowd. At this time the tool is mainly used by the population for ...
Digital Representation Of Indigenous Peoples Through Sharing, Collaboration, And Negotiation: An Introduction, 2018 Iowa State University
Digital Representation Of Indigenous Peoples Through Sharing, Collaboration, And Negotiation: An Introduction, Christina Gish Hill, Medeia C. Dehass
World Languages and Cultures Publications
In the past decade, digital media have been increasingly employed in museums in a variety of ways. This practice capitalized on the new medium’s effectiveness in connecting a variety of stakeholders across multiple key issues. Projects representing Indigenous communities are not an exception to this trend. This special issue critically reflects on the politics of representation in the process of reframing culturally specific concepts in a digital environment. In addition to discussing potential benefits of digital media to working with Indigenous communities, papers in the special issue also carefully weigh the benefits and shortcomings virtual environments may bring to ...

Should Theatre Disappear Like Soap Bubbles?, 2018 National Theatre
Should Theatre Disappear Like Soap Bubbles?, Erin Lee
Proceedings from the Document Academy
I recently read an excerpt from a 2004 interview with Peter Hall where he claims that he was happy for his materials to disappear "like soap bubbles" (Reason, 2006). One of the fundamentally difficult things about archiving theatre, aside from its ephemeral nature, is the approach that creatives take to their work. Not only do we need to battle the format of live performance but we also need to convince many creatives, not all I must add, that their work can and should remain in the Archive for use in the future. There are glimmers of potential in the area ...
Performing The Quality Of Imperceptible Interactions Between Individuals: A Technological Challenge Regarding The Collective, 2018 Université du Québec à Montréal
Performing The Quality Of Imperceptible Interactions Between Individuals: A Technological Challenge Regarding The Collective, Marine Theunissen
Proceedings from the Document Academy
Contemporary technologies allow incredible possibilities of capturing individuals, but a problem arises when it comes to capturing a chorus, that is to say a "collective body" in motion. This proposal will address the problem of the sensitive capture of the quality of the interrelations between individuals, and of their refined interpretation through algorithms to "output” them in other forms. We will address two questions on the subject: how to capture the relations between individuals within a collective? How to create a circular-causal loop, whose artistic material (the digital data) is the interrelations of a collective, without engendering redundancy in their ...
The Walking Dramaturg: An Autoethnographic Methodology For Performance Documentation, 2018 University of Exeter
The Walking Dramaturg: An Autoethnographic Methodology For Performance Documentation, Giselle G. Garcia
Proceedings from the Document Academy
Technology usually implies the distancing of the human experience, but I argue what technology has enabled can teach us something about the role of multiplicity and the rhizomatic nature of history and storytelling. By looking at the subject position of the practicing performance researcher in terms of the walking dramaturg, the autoethnographic catalogue of such experience becomes a form of documentation in the archive of theatre histories. Taking the time to explore a nuanced understanding of the documeter’s subject position acknowledges the multifarious subject positions that contribute to the archive of theatre histories.
Beyond creating a record of evidence ...

The Digital Subversion Of Urban Space: Power, Performance And Grime, 2018 Singapore Management University
The Digital Subversion Of Urban Space: Power, Performance And Grime, Orlando Woods
Research Collection School of Social Sciences
Digital technologies play an increasingly prominent role in the reproduction of society and space. Rather than being studied as a separate category of understanding, the ways in which such technologies intersect with and inflect upon the real world has provided a recent focus of research. Urban music is inherently spatial, but the ways in which digital technologies have enabled artists to resist injustice, to reproduce space and to reclaim the right to the city has not yet been considered. This article fills the lacuna by exploring how grime artists harness digital technologies to resist marginalization by the mainstream and create ...
Students And Digital Projects At Wmu: Working And Learning Together, 2018 Western Michigan University
Students And Digital Projects At Wmu: Working And Learning Together, Marianne Swierenga
University Libraries Faculty & Staff Presentations
Western Michigan University Libraries uses undergraduate and graduate students in many stages of their digital projects, from finding aid creation and translation, to scanning and editing digital images. Using the recent digitization and description of a WWI German soldier’s scrapbook, we will examine how students are incorporated into the overall workflow, often bringing needed skills to the project and gaining valuable hands-on experience with archival materials, scanning equipment and software, and metadata creation.
Editor's Page, Volume 1, 2018 University of Dayton
Editor's Page, Volume 1, Amir Kalan
First-year undergraduate composition is often dominated by pedagogical practices that focus on persuasive writing and the rhetoric of assertion. Rooted in Anglo-American essayist literacy, college writing is traditionally treated as reporting facts in order to argue cases. In my writing seminars, my students and I decided to resist this dominant approach by employing writing to make sense of ourselves and the world around us. I invited the students to use writing as an epistemological medium in which students could think about their intended majors to comprehend the complexities involved in the disciplines and professions that they were about to enter ...
Formal And Informal Undergraduate Ethics Education In Engineering, 2018 University of Dayton
Formal And Informal Undergraduate Ethics Education In Engineering, Grace Ports
This literature review attempts to answer the question of whether formal education or informal education of ethics within civil engineering is more beneficial. If there is a lack of structured education of ethics in civil engineering, then another area of interest is to discover where engineers are being informally educated. Another area of inquiry is whether it is more beneficial to teach engineers ethics prior to the time when they are required to study the code of ethics for their certification exam, or should engineers wait until moments before the exam to study the code. This article examines the potential ...
Sustainability In Chemical Engineering, 2018 University of Dayton
Sustainability In Chemical Engineering, Alec T. Raber
For much of the past century, the world has seen industrial and technological progress that has helped make life better for humans but hurt the environment while doing so. Once people realized the damage that was being done, it was observed that this kind of development was not sustainable, meaning it did not “meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (Brundtland, 1987, p. 3). While different experts may define the term “sustainability” (or “sustainable development”), differently, they will all share the substance of Brundtland’s definition. Ever since the ...
Ethics Education In Engineering: Practices On And Off The Campus, 2018 University of Dayton
Ethics Education In Engineering: Practices On And Off The Campus, Katherine Theis
This paper will focus on two major methods for educating engineers in ethics. It is important to realize that two sets of standards exist within the field of engineering, both from the professional standards set within industries and from the personal moral standards held by engineers themselves. This article first examines the education of ethics within the workplace as some engineers have no previous training in ethics. Second, it discusses how ethics is introduced to engineers through university undergraduate and graduate courses. It will also evaluate whether ethics courses are more effective than the real-world application found through the professional ...
Advocating For More Experiential Learning Strategies In Medical School, 2018 University of Dayton
Advocating For More Experiential Learning Strategies In Medical School, Seth D. Adams
When it comes to learning and teaching, there are many ways for teachers and students to maximize the amount of learning that happens in the schooling environment. The focus of this paper is the effects of experiential learning in medical education. This pedagogy is very common in many teaching strategies and is widely used, debated, and studied throughout academia. This paper will introduce experiential learning as it is seen broadly throughout all fields of study and practice, but will then specifically focus on experiential learning and its effects on medical education. Using two different types of experiential learning, community-based learning ...
Engineering's Effects On Communities Through An Ethical Framework, 2018 University of Dayton
Engineering's Effects On Communities Through An Ethical Framework, Bailey A. Reid
Engineering is at the forefront of innovation and progression in our society, but often has various impacts on the communities in which projects take place. This article focuses on several ethical guidelines established through education and engineering’s effects on surrounding communities. Ethics inside of community actions and approach will also be explored.
Positive Effects Of Sustainability In Buisness, 2018 University of Dayton
Positive Effects Of Sustainability In Buisness, Matt Westman
This study aims to look at various businesses and address how they view and deal with the idea of making their practice more environmentally friendly and sustainable. More specifically, it will focus on how businesses spend money to make sure they are “green.” It will show whether or not businesses are more focused on earning money and making profit or about making the transition to being more environmentally concerned even if that includes spending more money to do so. This study also explores the benefits for businesses that choose to “go green” to see if the investment of being more ...
Undergraduate Voices, Volume 1 (2018), 2018 University of Dayton
Undergraduate Voices, Volume 1 (2018), Amir Kalan
In this volume, Grace Ports explores ethics education in engineering. She explains why engineering students need to engage with ethics and examines possibilities offered by formal and experiential learning of ethics for engineering students. Julia Weber asks why the field of engineering is male-dominated and why this condition should change. She discusses the proportion of men in the field in comparison with women and focuses on discrimination against women in the workplace. Alec Raber presents his thoughts about sustainability in chemical engineering by highlighting concepts such as industrial ecology and green engineering. Seth Adams advocates for more experiential learning in ...
