Resource: The Mewar Ramayana

Digital Humanities Now - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 14:55

Welcome to one of the world’s most beautiful Ramayana manuscripts. The original was prepared for Maharana Jagat Singh, the ruler of the Rajput kingdom of Mewar in Rajasthan, in the middle of the seventeenth century.

Most volumes of the manuscript are now in the British Library. They were presented by Maharana Bhim Singh of Mewar to Colonel James Tod who brought them back to Britain in 1823. Other parts have remained in India, held today in three separate institutions and one private collection.

Digitisation has made it possible for this long-divided manuscript to be brought together again for the first time in almost 200 years. The majority of text pages in the manuscript have been digitised as well as the paintings so that Valmiki’s work can be read in the original Sanskrit.

CF Participation: Digital Humanities Area, Southwest Popular/American Culture Assoc.

Digital Humanities Now - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 14:40

Southwest Popular/American Culture Association

Please join us for the 36th annual conference of the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association, February 11-14, 2015, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Conference Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The theme for 2015 is “Many Face, Many Voices: Intersecting Borders in Popular and American Culture.”

Digital Humanities (DH) is “a nexus of fields within which scholars use computing technologies to investigate the kinds of questions that are traditional to the humanities, or . . . ask traditional kinds of humanities-oriented questions about computing technologies.” (Kathleen Fitzpatrick, “The Humanities, Done Digitally”). The DH area is seeking papers (approximately 15 minutes in length) that explore the practical, pedagogical, and theoretical issues stemming from the use of Web technologies and other computing techniques and applications to enhance the study of the humanities, particularly popular and American culture studies. What are some of the exciting DH projects being developed today, and how are they redefining the way we approach popular culture? How is DH changing popular culture studies in (and outside of) academe?

The National Endowment for the Humanities Office of Digital Humanities announced seven recipients of Digital Implementation Grants yesterday, including Berkeley Prosopography Services (BPS).

Berkeley Prosopography Services, led by Laurie Pearce and Niek Veldhuis, was originally developed as part of a 2009 NEH Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant. Patrick Schmitz, from Research IT, was responsible for the architecture and early development work. Berkeley Prosopography Services is notable for its corpus-agnostic architecture that ensures reusability of technical components to solve comparable problems across corpora, its modeling of probabilistic assertions for disambiguation, and its workspace environments that support and encourage individual and collaborative exploration, and authority tracking.

Resource: T.S. Eliot Reads Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats & Other Classic Poems

Digital Humanities Now - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 14:15

Not only did T.S. Eliot draw the cover for the first edition of his Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, featured yesterday, he even read it aloud for the audiobook edition. You may think the time of the audiobook, now a popular form on digital audio devices everywhere, must have begun long after the time of Eliot had already ended. (Eliot died in 1965.) But as we know from having previously featured their mid-1970s albums of Leonard Nimoy reading Ray Bradbury, the record label Caedmon positioned themselves well ahead of the audiobook game. Using recordings made from readings given in London in 1955, Caedmon managed to release albums of Eliot speaking his own work aloud. Today we offer you T.S. Eliot Reads T.S. Eliot, made available via Spotify. The 18 tracks, running some 75 minutes, mostly features Eliot reading from Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. But he also recites a handful of other classic poems. (If you need Spotify, you can download the software here):
