      Introduction to the Digital Liberal Arts
      MDST 3703 / 7703Fall 2010
    • 2. Business
      Quiz 1will be returned Thursday
      Syllabus out of synch

      09-28 Rossetti and Blake
      10-05 Tibetan Himalayan Library + Dante
      MIDTERMS
      Do you want due before or after break?
    • 3. Review
      Valley of the Shadow and The Differences Slavery Made
      Extensive collection of primary sources
      Primarily hierarchical with controlled hypertext
      Categories not exposed
      Open narrative is a mode of writing, not of history per se
      We may say that history is not “monocausal”
      Open narrative associated with emergent properties of complex systems
    • 4. Structure of TDSM
      Categories
      VOS
    • 20. Overview
      Today we look at literary projects that focus on images
      And we name the genre—Thematic Research Collections
      Move from Structure to Use
    • 21. PLAN
      What are critical opportunities?
      Incompleteness
      What are the scholarly primitives?
      Selection, Organization, Synthesis
      Discovering, Annotating, Comparing, Referring, Sampling, Illustrating, Representing
      The Stack of Scholarship
      How do TRSes address these?
    • 22. Radiant Textuality
      “The Mutation of Theory to Practise”
    • 23. Dueling Victorianists . . .
      Landow
      McGann
      from … Theory to History
      Criticism to Sources
      Text to Library
    • 24. Hierarchy considered OK …
      "Hierarchies can be determined and need not be determinate" (RT, 385)
      Where have we seen this?
    • 25. “We must begin experimenting with the critical opportunities that these new media hold out to us.”
      What are some “critical opportunities” of hypertext that McGann cites?
    • 26. Incompleteness
      (entails activity . . .)
    • 27. Scholarly Primitives
      A list of irreducible “functions” associated with the activities of scholarship
      Discovering Annotating Comparing Referring Sampling Illustrating Representing
      Basic “moves” in the game of scholarship
      Compare to the Memex Man
      Discusses interfaces designed at IATH to meet these needs
      Where do they belong in our scheme?
      Selection  Classification  Synthesis
    • 28. The Stack of Scholarship
      Discovering
      Annotating
      Comparing
      Referring
      Sampling
      Illustrating Representing
      Activities
      Collections
    • 29. http://digitalscholarship.wordpress.com/2008/08/11/doing-digital-scholarship-presentation-at-digital-humanities-2008/
    • 30. Thematic Research Collections
      Coined by Unsworth in 2000
      Developed by Palmer in article
      Based on real examples of hypermedia collections
      How are TRCs different from books? Libraries?
      How do they relate to the Stack of Scholarship?
    • 31. The Rossetti Archive
      One of two original IATH projects
      Focused on the works the Pre-Raphaelite poet and painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882)
      Art history and literary criticism
      Innovations
      Improved search(cross-site)
      Bread crumbs
    • 32. Getting to BoccaBaciata
      Find the painting, BoccaBaciata
      Search [image records]
      What do you do when you get there?
      How is the site structured?
    • 33. BoccaBaciata1859
      http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/91/Dante_Gabriel_Rossetti_Bocca_Baciata_1859.png/510px-Dante_Gabriel_Rossetti_Bocca_Baciata_1859.png
    • 34. The Blake Archive
      Example of networked fellows at IATH
      Morris Eaves, University of Rochester
      Robert Essick, University of California, Riverside
      Joseph Viscomi, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
      Innovations
      Image fidelity
      Image search (iconographic classification)
    • 35. Getting to Tyger
      Find illustrations of Tyger
      Image Search  Animal  Tyger
      What do you do when you get there?
      How is the site structured?
    • 36. Exercise
      Compare Rossetti and Blake archives in terms of the primitives and the stack of scholarship
      What devices and techniques are used to support each aspect of scholarship?
      Are the sites functional as research portals?
      Break up into 4 groups
      Group A: Scholarly Primitives in Rossetti
      Group B: Scholarly Primitives in Blake
      Group C: Comparing for Comparison
      Group D: Comparing for Contextual Mass
      Assign a scribe and a reporter
      Scribe writes post and tags with 09-28 Exercise
    • 37. Summary
      Thematic collections are designed to support the activities of scholarship
      Not just reading (as in books)
      Not just finding (as in libraries)
      But are they effective in doing so?
      Test: What do you do when you find something?
