Data Curation Needed To Avoid A Digital Dark Age, Desiree Butterfield-Nagy 2015 The University of Maine

Data Curation Needed To Avoid A Digital Dark Age, Desiree Butterfield-Nagy

Maine Policy Review

An increasingly recognized need for digital cura­tion, or the active selection of digital files and taking steps toward preserving them, has been a natural evolution in an environment where vast amounts of intellectual and cultural content is born digital and may not be represented in tangible form. Desirée Butterfield-Nagy explores the measures that individuals and organizations need to take to ensure we avoid a Digital Dark Age.

Using Photogrammetry To Document, Analyze, And Reverse-Engineer Grave Markers, Robert Z. Selden Jr. 2015 Center for Regional Heritage Research, Stephen F. Austin State University

Using Photogrammetry To Document, Analyze, And Reverse-Engineer Grave Markers, Robert Z. Selden Jr.

CRHR: Archaeology

There are a wide range of applications for three-dimensional (3D) data in archaeology, and a diverse array of methods for collecting and analyzing those data. In this article, free 3D photogrammetry software (Autodesk 123D Catch) is used to document a series of grave markers. The data are subsequently exported to Geomagic Design X to demonstrate and briefly discuss the various potential analyses that might be used to illustrate the effects of preservation treatments and marker degradation through time. Further, one marker is reverse-engineered, illustrating the capacity of 3D modeling to expedite the process of design, should elements warrant replacement. Additional ...

Hemingway "Hills Like White Elephants": Epistemic, Nonepistemic And Nonseeing, gene washington 2014 Utah State University

Hemingway "Hills Like White Elephants": Epistemic, Nonepistemic And Nonseeing, Gene Washington

Gene Washington

This essay, a though-experiment, explores the value of reading literary texts (with the example of Hemingway's "Hills Like White Elephants") from the point of view of epistemic, nonepistemic and nonseeing. Epistemic seeing is defined as seeing with "belief-content" nonepistemic seeing without it. The technique is to examine each example of the word "seeing" (or one of the members of its family, "look, watch," "blink") and let it "lead" you to the object, its contest, and implications in the story as a whole..

She argues that by distinguishing developments in different phases we can see that electronic literature moved from text to technotext, from text as decoding meaning to text as a process of information and information system, from an interpretation to experience, from visual perception to performativity, from ...


Electronic Poetry And The Importance Of Digital Repository, Manuel Brito 2014 University of La Laguna

Electronic Poetry And The Importance Of Digital Repository, Manuel Brito

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In his article "Electronic Poetry and the Importance of Digital Repository" Manuel Brito analyzes selected early digital repositories of electronic poetry. In addition to issues concerning efficiency and discursive practice, Brito's discusses the objectives, contents, and the funding of digital repositories. Brito argues that digital repositories promote poetry, enable networking and quick publishing of innovative poetry, they intensify the reading experience, and make a readership possible that is larger than that of print poetry. Networking, interaction, and web-based communication intensify the writing and reading experience while new modes of discourse are emerging continually. Not just passive consumerism promoted by ...


A Survey Of Electronic Literature Collections, Luis Pablo, María Goicoechea 2014 Madrid

A Survey Of Electronic Literature Collections, Luis Pablo, María Goicoechea

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In their article "A Survey of Electronic Literature Collections" Luis Pablo and María Goicoechea describe characteristics and functions of collections of electronic literature and analyze descriptors used and the way information can be accessed. Based on their observations, Pablo and Goicoechea advocate a database structure which is flexible and can produce a dynamic archiving model as texts are registered and collected so that tags form a close set for the texts in the collection and this set can expand as new texts make new tags necessary. Further, the organization of tags into ever more complex taxonomies seems inevitable, since this ...


New Challenges For The Archiving Of Digital Writing, Heiko Zimmermann 2014 University of Trier

New Challenges For The Archiving Of Digital Writing, Heiko Zimmermann

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In his article "New Challenges for the Archiving of Digital Writing" Heiko Zimmermann discusses the challenges of the preservation of digital texts. In addition to the problems already at the focus of attention of digital archivists, there are elements in digital literature which need to be taken into consideration when trying to archive them. Zimmermann analyses two works of digital literature, the collaborative writing project A Million Penguins (2006-2007) and Renée Tuner's She… (2008) and shows how the ontology of these texts is bound to elements of performance, to direct social interaction of writers and readers to the uniquely ...


The Meaning And Relevance Of Video Game Literacy, Jeroen Bourgonjon 2014 Ghent University

The Meaning And Relevance Of Video Game Literacy, Jeroen Bourgonjon

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

He contends that video games serve as an important frame of reference for young people and call for informed decision making in the context of culture, education, and policy. Bourgonjon provides an integrated perspective on video game literacy by employing theoretical insights about their distinctive ...
