Auc Cypher: Justin Terrell Aka Twstid, Aaron Carter-Enyi, Justin Terrell

Africana Digital Ethnography Project

According to the artist: "My style of music always depends on how I feel at the moment. I hate having to pick a genre to identify with. One thing is for sure though: I CAN RAP. When I start recording, even I don't know what's about to come out my mouth. I surprise myself. I'm Twstid."

Broken Books, Debra Taylor Cashion

Manuscript Studies

Broken Books is a digital humanities project built collaboratively between Pius XII Memorial Library and the Center for Digital Humanities of Saint Louis University.

Although still under development, Broken Books will encourage new contributions to manuscripts studies by facilitating the reconstruction of manuscripts ...

The Bibale Database At The Irht: A Digital Tool For Researching Manuscript Provenance, Hanno Wijsman

Manuscript Studies

The Institut de recherche et d’histoire des textes (IRHT) in Paris makes available a series of specialized electronic tools on medieval manuscripts, among which is Bibale, a database that aims to trace the provenance of medieval manuscripts and to reconstruct historic book collections from the medieval and early modern periods. This article explains the history, scope, and present state of this database and its links with several other tools, among which are the image repository Bibliothèque virtuelle des manuscrits médiévaux (BVMM) and the Biblissima project that is working on interoperability of a series of French digital humanities projects concerning ...


"The Butcher’S Bill”: Using The Schoenberg Database To Reverse-Engineer Medieval And Renaissance Manuscript Books From Constituent Fragments, Eric Johnson, Scott J. Gwara 2017 The Ohio State University

"The Butcher’S Bill”: Using The Schoenberg Database To Reverse-Engineer Medieval And Renaissance Manuscript Books From Constituent Fragments, Eric Johnson, Scott J. Gwara

Manuscript Studies

Medieval manuscripts are perishable objects. Whether they have degraded over time through constant use and exposure to the elements or been deliberately cut up to be reused in other fashions or sold on the collectors’ market, the fragments produced by these destructive circumstances still have much to tell modern scholars about the medieval codices of which they were once a part. Through a series of six case studies focusing on a disparate array of fragments, this essay demonstrates how scholars can use the University of Pennsylvania’s Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts to help recover the hidden histories of fragmentary manuscripts.

Wwabd? Intersectional Futures In Digital History, Tonya L. Howe 2017 Marymount University

Wwabd? Intersectional Futures In Digital History, Tonya L. Howe

ABO: Interactive Journal for Women in the Arts, 1640-1830

WWABD: What would Aphra Behn—world traveler and spy, playwright and poet of scandal, innovator of novelistic forms—do, were she to imagine a future for digital humanities in period-specific scholarship? This essay outlines a vision for the DH section of Aphra Behn Online: An Interactive Journal for Women in the Arts, 1640-1830. In particular, I see three important and interrelated places for development: theorizing the feminized labor of digital recovery, editing, and textual preparation; offering thoughtful and feminist approaches to digital pedagogy that are specific to the work we do in the period; and critically assessing the absences in ...

Materiality In Site Responsive Art, Daniel Dean, John W. Kim 2017 Marshall University

Materiality In Site Responsive Art, Daniel Dean, John W. Kim

Daniel Dean

Daniel Dean and Ben Moren are both longtime contributors to MAW. Sharing an interest in experimental filmmaking, they formed Mobile Experiential Cinema (MEC) in 2011 for a Northern Spark commission to explore site-specific projection. They have subsequently collaborated on several works that explore comparable themes and ideologies. MEC makes use of the Mobile Broadcasting Unit developed by MAW as a platform for their own work, but Dean and Moren make significant changes to the outfit to facilitate their divergent approach to site-specific, responsive projection.

The last section highlighted how site was not a central concern in MAW’s public projections ...

How To Rate A Book: Goodreads, Taste, And Reading In The 21st Century, Dylan Burns 2017 Utah State University

How To Rate A Book: Goodreads, Taste, And Reading In The 21st Century, Dylan Burns

Dylan Burns

“What shall the individual who still desires to read attempt to read this late in history?” asks Harold Bloom. Writing at the end of the 20th century, Bloom’s quote anticipates the information explosion that the age of the internet brought to the reader (even if his emphasis is on the unpopularity of reading rather than the explosion in options). Social media sites like Goodreads prove that reading is still popular, yet Bloom’s question of what does someone read is still salient. More than ever, reading is a social activity, to be shared, debated, and justified between millions ...

Leaktivism And Its Discontents, Athina Karatzogianni 2017 Senior Lecturer in Media and Communication, University of Leicesterl

Leaktivism And Its Discontents, Athina Karatzogianni

Athina Karatzogianni

This work examines how two core debates (secrecy versus transparency and openness versus closure) influence the framing of ethics and tactics, and produce unintended consequences for actors and relationships surrounding leaktivism. To illustrate my argument, I refer to DCLeaks, and WikiLeaks’ DNCLeaks and CIALeaks. These specific empirical examples are chosen, because there is a consistent thematic on intelligence, secrecy and transparency, democratic accountability, propaganda and sabotage in global politics involving prominent actors in the United States and Russia, as well as proxy countries across the East-West Cold War axis. I argue that the main discontent with leaktivism is that ...

The Apparition Of These Screens In The Crowd, Trey Conatser 2017 University of Kentucky

The Apparition Of These Screens In The Crowd, Trey Conatser

Greater Faculties: A Review of Teaching and Learning

To unpack some of our assumptions about attention, learning, and technology in the classroom, CELT's Trey Conatser spoke with Dr. Yuha Jung and Dr. Rachel Shane of the Department of Arts Administration. Jung and Shane have worked with colleagues to integrate technologies into their teaching so that students are more likely to be on task. What follows is an informal exploration of what it means to pay attention and to learn in the context of the contested value of digital technologies.

Virtual Archaeology, Virtual Longhouses And "Envisioning The Unseen" Within The Archaeological Record, William M. Carter 2017 The University of Western Ontario

Virtual Archaeology, Virtual Longhouses And "Envisioning The Unseen" Within The Archaeological Record, William M. Carter

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

We are of an era in which digital technology now enhances the method and practice of archaeology. In our rush to embrace these technological advances however, Virtual Archaeology has become a practice to visualize the archaeological record, yet it is still searching for its methodological and theoretical base. I submit that Virtual Archaeology is the digital making and interrogating of the archaeological unknown. By wayfaring means, through the synergy of the maker, digital tools and material, archaeologists make meaning of the archaeological record by engaging the known archaeological data with the crafting of new knowledge by multimodal reflection and the ...
