February 25, 2015 @ 8:00 am - March 1, 2015 @ 5:00 pm UTC-5
University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States + Google Map

We talk a lot these days about magnitude: Big Data, crowd-sourcing, MOOCs, global access. And yet the arts & humanities are concerned with human relationships, which often take place in intimate surroundings. During this seminar, we will bridge the distance between the massive scale of the digital world and the privacy of home, between Renaissance Italy and 21st-century North Carolina. Our focus is on intimate activities: music-making, letter-writing, quiet contemplation, and dining at the Mantuan court of Isabella d’Este (1474-1539),…

Anne MacNeil (Principal Investigator) University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill Co-Director, IDEA: Isabella d'Este Archive Roberta Piccinelli (Co-Principal Investigator) Università degli Studi di Teramo Secretaries are keepers of secrets.

Their records offer a godsend to historians, but secretarial copies also reflect a change in the meaning of letters by adding an administrative mediation that de-personalizes them—a change not evident in the sent letter alone. With Mapping Secrets, my…

IDEA Featured as Plenary Presentation at Digitorium 2017 University of Alabama

March 2, 2017 - March 4, 2017
University of Alabama University Libraries Tuscaloosa, AL 35487 United States + Google Map

Digitorium 2017 is the Digital Humanities Conference hosted by the University of Alabama. Inspired by working with scholars and students in many different departments, the Alabama Digital Humanities Center has created Digitorium, with the generous support of the University Libraries and the Hudson Strode Program in Renaissance Studies in the Department of English at the University of Alabama, to provide a new venue to discuss the wide range of digital methods which are used and shared by researchers, graduate students, and practitioners from both the humanities and also the social sciences. The conference name, Digitorium, was inspired by the Medieval scriptorium as an early center for the creation, visualization, and dissemination of knowledge. Now, once more, with the evolution of digital techniques such as data visualization and computer-driven textual analysis, we are experiencing another revolution in the circulation and development of ideas, and it is our intention with Digitorium to provide a space in which people working in Digital Humanities can share and grow their work.
