The Promise Of The Digital Humanities And The Contested Nature Of Digital Scholarship, William G. Thomas, III 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

The Promise Of The Digital Humanities And The Contested Nature Of Digital Scholarship, William G. Thomas, Iii

Faculty Publications, Department of History

This essay examines the contested qualities of digital scholarship and why, paradoxically, the twenty-year surge in the digital humanities--from 1993 to 2013--has produced relatively little interpretive or argumentative scholarship. In this first phase of the digital humanities, scholars produced innovative and sophisticated hybrid works of scholarship, blending archives, tools, commentaries, data collections, and visualizations. For the most part in the disciplines, however, few of these works have been reviewed or critiqued. Because the disciplines expect interpretation, argument, and criticism, it could be argued that digital humanists have not produced enough digital interpretive scholarship and what we have produced has not ...

Fall 2014 Lyceum Lecture: "Raising Spirits: Victorian Ghost Stories", Lynn Parker 2014 Framingham State University

Fall 2014 Lyceum Lecture: "Raising Spirits: Victorian Ghost Stories", Lynn Parker

Lyceum Lecture Series

In addition to being "great reads" that still frighten us today, Victorian ghost stories and supernatural literature reflect the growing apprehension that Victorians felt in response to rapidly shifting cultural boundaries, such as changes in religion, new scientific theories, and advancing technology. Examining the Victorian fascination with the spectral encourages us to consider the ways in which our contemporary culture's obsession with the supernatural may mark a similar discomfort with fast-paced social change.

Presented by Dr. Lynn Parker, Professor, English Department, Framingham State University.

Nurturing Play-Makers & Active Investigative Agents: Schwartz Tag, Good Video Games And Futures Of Jewish Learning, Owen Gottlieb 2014 Rochester Institute of Technology

Nurturing Play-Makers & Active Investigative Agents: Schwartz Tag, Good Video Games And Futures Of Jewish Learning, Owen Gottlieb

Articles

How can an experiential approach to education, in combination with a games-based orientation, help us reach often-elusive educational goals? In many ways the study of games and game design bring us back to tenets of education that we have long known, including the benefits of self-directed learning and project-based work. Games-based design and learning may provide a way to shift the discussion from “What should an educated Jew know?” to “How does a learner develop a taste for Jewish learning and living?”

Casta Painting And The Characterization Of Colonial Mexican Identities, Natalia Caldas 2014 The University of Western Ontario

Casta Painting And The Characterization Of Colonial Mexican Identities, Natalia Caldas

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This thesis will examine the emergence of the casta painting genre in eighteenth century New Spain and elements of identity formation in the characterization of colonial subjects. Through the use of a database and close reading of paintings, a corpus of 370 paintings were studied and analyzed. A total of 1471 casta characters were extracted from said paintings and the relationship between actions performed, objects, and to each other was analyzed. In using this methodology results point to the significant historical division between the social communities and colonial society. By focusing on the study of particular characters fractures in imposed ...
