Digital Repatriation In The Field Of Indigenous Anthropology, Timothy B. Powell 2011 University of Pennsylvania

Digital Repatriation In The Field Of Indigenous Anthropology, Timothy B. Powell

Departmental Papers (Religious Studies)

As the term “digital repatriation” gains wider circulation, it has come under increased scrutiny and criticism. At the 2010 AAA Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Kim Christen convened an Executive Program Committee session entitled “After the Return: Digital Repatriation and the Circulation of Indigenous Knowledge.” Despite abundant examples of how digital technology creates opportunities for working in partnership with indigenous communities, questions focused on the inadequacies of the term “digital repatriation.” Panelist Chip Colwell-Chanthaphonh (Denver Museum of Nature and Science) stated the problem most succinctly by recounting that the Native communities he worked with always wanted to know if “digital ...

Beyond Friending: Buddypress And The Social, Networked, Open-Source Classroom, Matthew K. Gold 2011 CUNY Graduate Center

Beyond Friending: Buddypress And The Social, Networked, Open-Source Classroom, Matthew K. Gold

Publications and Research

Classrooms have always been networks, of a sort, with professors and students forming an interlaced series of nodes that take shape over the course of a semester, but tools like BuddyPress and WordPress can make those networks more open, more porous, and more varied. In very useful ways, the classroom-as-social-network can help create engaging spaces for learning in which students are more connected to one another, to their professors, and to the wider world.


Archival Theory And Digital Historiography: Selection, Search, And Metadata As Archival Processes For Assessing Historical Contextualization, Joshua Sternfeld 2010 Selected Works

Archival Theory And Digital Historiography: Selection, Search, And Metadata As Archival Processes For Assessing Historical Contextualization, Joshua Sternfeld

S.S., A.D., M.C. (Group 4)

Digital history, a field within the digital humanities, has challenged the disciplinary boundary that in recent decades has come to separate the work of historians and archivists. A new theory and methodology that draws from both disciplines can create a shared vovabulary for the production, use, and evaluation of digital historical representations, a broad term that encompasses an array of products such as archives, databases, geospatial visualizations, and mobile applications. This article argues that archival theory, when combined with historiography and technical or computational standards, contributes to a new theory called digital historiography. Digital historiography is defined as the interdisciplinary ...

Negotiating The Cultural Turn As Universities Adopt A Corporate Model In An Economic Downturn, Timothy B. Powell 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Negotiating The Cultural Turn As Universities Adopt A Corporate Model In An Economic Downturn, Timothy B. Powell

Departmental Papers (Religious Studies)

I would like to begin by thanking Jerry McGann for inviting me to engage in this vital discussion. As someone who works with Native American communities, which are rarely represented in forums like this one, it means a great deal to have these indigenous voices recognized and authorized. I would also like to thank Ken Price for his very thoughtful essay. This response seeks to pursue in greater depth an issue raised by Ken’s comparison between the Walt Whitman Archive, a “single author-based” project begun in 1995, and Civil War Washington, a “theme-based” archive currently in development. More specifically ...


Genre, Database, And The Anatomy Of The Digital Archive, Elizabeth J. Vincelette 2010 Old Dominion University

Genre, Database, And The Anatomy Of The Digital Archive, Elizabeth J. Vincelette

English Theses & Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to define shared characteristics of literary digital archives, specifically to explore how conceptual and structural qualities of such archives express generic qualities. In order to describe digital media such as database or digital archives, scholars resort to metaphors, and this study offers the metaphor of anatomy as a generic inscription with historical and methodological implications. The definition of the anatomy genre draws from Northrop Frye's in Anatomy of Criticism, in which Frye describes how anatomies are characterized by proliferating lists, the mixing of prose and non-prose forms, and self-reflexivity--under the guise of knowledge ...
