Practicing Digital Humanities In The Classroom: Tools And Methods, Lis Pankl, Casey Hoeve, Alex Stinson

Digital Humanities Symposium

As an extension of the first workshop, we will focus on integrating digital humanities in the classroom by exploring a variety of digital humanities related resources available at Kansas State University as well as introducing a specific pedagogy intervention, students writing Wikipedia articles for classroom assignments. Often replacing research papers and/or literature reviews, these assignments ask students to practice disciplinary research and writing skills to fill gaps for a public audience.

This workshop will explore the tools available through the Wikipedia Education Program, common assignment design concerns, example assignments run by faculty at Kansas State University in the departments ...

A Primer On Copyright And Fair Use, Ann E. Biswas, Charles J. Russo

Charles J. Russo

One student creates a video for class using a Lady Gaga song. Another puts together a PowerPoint presentation about the Vietnam War using images she found online. A third student adds a link to a YouTube video in a blog post for an English class. One teacher photocopies and distributes articles from a national newspaper. Another teacher records a television documentary at home and shows it to her class. Did those students and teachers violate copyright law? The complex, evolving laws governing copyright and fair use are muddied by the rapid growth and use of technology in schools, yet it ...

Feminist Markup And Meaningful Text Analysis In Digital Literary Archives, Hannah M. Schilperoort 2015 San Jose State University

Feminist Markup And Meaningful Text Analysis In Digital Literary Archives, Hannah M. Schilperoort

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

In this research paper, I examine three digital archives of women writers--University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Willa Cather Archive, Northeastern University’s Women Writers Online, and University of Alberta’s Orlando Project--for evidence of encoding practices and computational text analysis experimentation that supports feminist scholarship. I provide a brief overview of text encoding practices and controversies in digital literary studies, emphasizing research that suggests heavily detailed and interpretative markup results in more meaningful text analysis outcomes. I situate feminist text encoding and analysis practices and technologies within a larger argument for the use of detailed, interpretative and critical markup. I begin ...

CDRH Grant Reports

In the first six months of work on "Image Analysis for Archival Discovery," the project team has made significant strides toward our goal of analyzing more than 7 million newspaper pages in Chronicling America for poetic content. Although we have made some adjustments to our work plan, we remain on task to perform the major research outlined in our proposal. Activities undertaken from June–November 2014:
• Preparation of training set images (completed)
• Processing of initial data sets to extract/derive features from image data (completed)
• Development of algorithms for describing image characteristics (completed, but future iterations/revisions are likely)

Aggregating Temporal Forensic Data Across Archival Digital Media, William Sampson 2015 University of Colorado, Boulder

Aggregating Temporal Forensic Data Across Archival Digital Media, William Sampson

University Libraries Faculty & Staff Contributions

In this paper, I introduce a method for generating an aggregated timeline of file system activity derived from the disk images of archival digital media. Using a collection of 1,059 floppy disks from the Woody and Steina Vasulka collection as a case study for this process, I evaluate the technical issues of the dataset and describe the variances in date and time use for different file systems and the operating systems that use them. I discuss the utility of the timeline as a research and archival aid, and conclude that such timelines are promising resources which can provide a ...


Neh Summer Stipend Grant Proposal Brinkman, Bartholomew Brinkman 2015 Framingham State University

Neh Summer Stipend Grant Proposal Brinkman, Bartholomew Brinkman

Grants

I am applying for a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Stipend in order to devote June and July 2016 to full-time research and writing about World War I poetry, free from teaching responsibilities and other paid duties that I would otherwise need to undertake. In particular, I will use such digital humanities techniques as topic modeling and text mining to locate and examine poems in modern magazines, investigating how such examples highlight specific war experiences and contribute to defining the genre of the modern war poem more generally. This research will result in an article that I will submit ...


"Nobody Else Knows Me, But The Street Knows Me" - Jean Rhys's Urban Flaneuses: Mapping "Good Morning, Midnight", Emily Duffy 2015 Ursinus College

"Nobody Else Knows Me, But The Street Knows Me" - Jean Rhys's Urban Flaneuses: Mapping "Good Morning, Midnight", Emily Duffy

English Independent Study Projects

My project explores the urban geography of Paris, as depicted by Rhys, through theories of space articulated by Walter Benjamin, Michel de Certeau, and Gaston Bachelard. I will provide some theoretical context to show how approaching this novel from a spatial perspective can help us understand Sasha’s experience. Additionally, I explore how Sasha’s gendered body moves through these spaces, how place and space affect her identity, and how mapping this novel can enrich the experience of the reader, especially a reader who is unfamiliar with interwar Paris.
