        From: Shawn Day <day.shawn at GMAIL.COM>
        Subject: Early Modern Digital Agendas at the Folger Institute


In July 2013, the Folger Institute will offer “Early Modern Digital Agendas” under the direction of Jonathan Hope<http://www.strath.ac.uk/humanities/courses/english/staff/hopejonathanprof/>, Professor of Literary Linguistics at the University of Strathclyde. It is an NEH-funded, three-week institute that will explore the robust set of digital tools with period-specific challenges and limitations that early modern English literary scholars now have at hand.

“Early Modern Digital Agendas” will create a forum in which twenty faculty participants can historicize, theorize, and critically evaluate current and future digital tools and approaches in early modern literary studies—from Early English Books Online-Text Creation Partnership (EEBO-TCP) to advanced corpus linguistics, semantic searching, and visualization theory—with discussion growing out of, and feeding back into, their own projects (current and envisaged). With the guidance of expert visiting faculty, attention will be paid to the ways new technologies are shaping the very nature of early modern research and the means by which scholars interpret texts, teach their students, and present their findings to other scholars.

This institute is supported by an Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities<http://www.neh.gov/divisions/odh/grant-news/announcing-5-new-institutes-advanced-topics-in-the-digital-humanities-july> grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Office of Digital Humanities.

Sam and the lovely people of the Open-Humanities and Humanities-Dev lists,

Thank you for your email about our proposed Shakespeare Hackday. I am
emailing as I am delighted to announce that the ShakeSpeare Hackday is
going ahead!

We had a fantastic responses to our survey - thank you to all who took
part - and based on that feedback we have decided that an online hack
should take place in the format of a week-long event running from 5th to
12th December 2012.

For an introduction of what our hopes for the event are take a look at
this video from the Will's World Project Manager Muriel Mewissen:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dXw54Wydok

We have set up a wiki for the event where we would encourage you to take
a look around the wiki and, hopefully, complete the registration form
for the event. We will be sending out goodie bags to the first 50
participants to register as an added incentive!

Please do also feel free to forward this information on to any
colleagues, friends or mailing lists that you think may be interested in
taking part. We really do welcome everyone to take part in the hack
event whether developers, amateur coders, or those with great ideas to
share, such as educators, creative practitioners, Shakespeare fans, etc.

        From: Shawn Day <day.shawn at GMAIL.COM>
        Subject: Digitisation in a Day Workshop at an Foras Feasa 13 Dec 2012
        In-Reply-To: <50B4F845.1080103 at ed.ac.uk>


“Digitisation in a Day”, 13th December 2012

John G. Keating, Damien Gallagher, Sharon Webb, Aja Teehan

Overview: This one day, hands-on, workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to become involved in the digitisation of a real-world guestbook while working with a team experienced in digital humanities and design methodologies, theories and practice.

The day’s activities will result in the creation of an on-line, searchable, interactive, digital edition of the guestbook (see figure below). Participants will work in teams, engaging in hands-on digital imaging with high-resolution imaging equipment, project and software requirements analysis, data modeling for humanities research, XML encoding, software design and implementation.  The various components that are created will be ingested into a Fedora repository and made available online for the participants.

Participants: The workshop will be of interest to professionals such as librarians and archivists, along with researchers, project managers, and D[X]igital Humanities Specialists involved, or planning to be involved, in the creation of digital humanities artefacts. An overview of the entire process will be invaluable to those who are considering committing to a digital humanities project, providing them with the opportunity to participate in the entire process, from start to finish, and to gain an understanding of the planning, work-flow and resources that are required to deliver a digital artefact. Project managers and supervisors who are considering projects in this area, or who will be coming into contact with researchers in the field, may also be interested in attending.  For those participants who have a deep understanding of one part of the process this will provide them with an appreciation of the other, necessary, phases in the development, and demonstrate the interdependencies that exist between those phases.

Upon completion, participants will be provided with course notes and recommended resources.  All hardware and software will be provided at the workshop.

Where and When: The workshop will be run in An Foras Feasa’s Teaching and Training Laboratory, on the first floor of the Iontas Building, on the North Campus at NUI, Maynooth.  It will run on the 13th of December from 9.30 am to 5 pm, with a one hour lunch. Coffee and lunch will be provided on the premises for all participants.

Registration: For those attending from educational or cultural heritage institutions the cost is €100 for the day, for all others the cost is €500.  Numbers are limited to 30 participants.  Please register by the 7th of December using the registration form provided below. Regretfully, given the limited number of places available, cancellations received after the 7th of December will still incur the registration fee.

Sponsored Places: An Foras Feasa is pleased to offer five sponsored places for the workshop.  Those wishing to apply should send in their registration form (below), together with a letter detailing the reasons why they are seeking the sponsored place.
