Modelling Participatory Design In Digital Humanities Pedagogy And Research, Hannah Scates Kettler, Joyce Tsai, Matthew T. Butler, Theresa Hercher, Paul Schmitt, Lindley Warren

University of Iowa Libraries Staff Publications

With the support of the Mellon-funded Digital Bridges Initiative, the semester-long course, “Museum without Walls,” invites students to conduct new research and engage digital interface development related to the history of the Intermedia program at the University of Iowa. Renowned as one of the first MFA programs that encouraged art students to work across disciplines in their research and practice, Intermedia produced work that often integrated new technologies and media.

Focused on the study of a partially digitized corpus of videos made by students, faculty, and visiting artists between 1969-2003 in the program, the course pursues art historical lines of ...

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

Library Faculty & Staff Presentations

“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 ...


Sonifying Hamlet, Ashleigh Cassemere-Stanfield 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Sonifying Hamlet, Ashleigh Cassemere-Stanfield

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Sonifying Hamlet uses data-mining techniques and algorithmic composition to read Shakespeare's Hamlet through sound. In so doing, it attends to pre-semantic, textual data that is only visible when one steps back from reading for narrative and instead focuses on formal details that, being individually small, but collectively numerous, are more visible to computational sorting than they are to human eyes that have been trained to look for broad semantic content. This use of algorithmically generated sound to reconstruct textual data continues the western trend towards ubiquitous quantification, while also challenging that trend's underlying assumption that reality is reducible ...

Harriet Beecher Stowe’S Letters, 1868: A Study, Janet Kong-Chow 2017 Princeton University

Harriet Beecher Stowe’S Letters, 1868: A Study, Janet Kong-Chow

Journal of the Penn Manuscript Collective

This project examines two letters written by Harriet Beecher Stowe, one dated 1868; the other undated. The 1868 letter is personal correspondence sent from Charleston, South Carolina and reveals a surprising connection between Stowe and the Tyler family of Philadelphia (for whom Temple University’s Tyler School of Art is named). The undated letter is addressed to Stowe’s editor and publisher, James T. Fields. In it she includes detailed input on the cover art for the forthcoming Little Pussy Willow (1870), and updates on various shorter writing projects under contract. While the contents of both letters contain rather quotidian ...

Creating Digital Knowledge: Library As Open Access Digital Publisher, D. Russell Bailey 2017 Providence College

Creating Digital Knowledge: Library As Open Access Digital Publisher, D. Russell Bailey

Library Faculty and Staff papers

Since the mid-1990s, many higher education libraries have evolved from the traditional roles of primarily (1) research resource purchasers and providers and (2) research service providers into new, enhanced, and complementary digital age roles related to digital open access knowledge creation and digital publishing, creating digital resources for open education. This article presents a brief description of open access digital knowledge creation, the library publishing landscape (particularly in Digital Humanities/DH), as well as several model higher education library approaches and example initiatives in these areas. These models and initiatives are presented as broadly adaptable and scalable to many higher ...


No More False Heavens: In The Wake Of Campus Sexual Violence, Destry Sibley 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

No More False Heavens: In The Wake Of Campus Sexual Violence, Destry Sibley

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This project [https://arcg.is/0zy0eb] explores the crisis of sexual assault on college campuses. The project draws on a collective "biography" of women students and their experiences, as well as creative writing and data visualization. It exists on the web and uses a mix of media -- data interactives, photographs, writing, audio, video, and annotated text are all possible mediums. (Only audio is collected from interviewees.)

Through this project I seek to consider issues of gender and inclusion within a college institution, with a particular focus on the built environment of the campus as metaphor. How does the architecture of ...


Ecologies Of Embodied Minds Embedded: Radical Romantic Perspectives On Architectures Of Technology, Sharmaine Browne 2017 City University of New York (CUNY)

Ecologies Of Embodied Minds Embedded: Radical Romantic Perspectives On Architectures Of Technology, Sharmaine Browne

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation explores Romantic responses to the role of architectural technologies in the development of material being, consciousness, and culture by applying a critical approach in which I combine radical embodied cognitive theory, ecocritical perspectives, and a phenomenological lens to select Romantic texts written from 1789 to 1884 in response to industrial modernity. While scholarship has thoroughly explored technology as a cultural force which inevitably shapes consciousness, I propose that a slight shift of emphasis from technology’s external influence to the material internalization of its influence allows for new perspectives—particularly in light of recent proposals in cognitive philosophy ...
