New videos of presentations from CNI’s spring 2014 membership meeting are now available:
In From Fragmentation to Reaggregation: Revealing a “Virtual” Medieval Library with Manuscriptlink, Eric Johnson of The Ohio State University describes Manuscriptlink, a new digital humanities initiative that aims to reconstruct a “virtual” medieval library by collaborating with collections around the world to re-aggregate hundreds, if not thousands, of previously lost medieval volumes. The project will foster active interdisciplinary cooperation across the humanities as well as collaboration among numerous international institutions. Available on Vimeo (http://vimeo.com/98052555) and YouTube (http://youtu.be/B9r7F0PAeYQ).
A project designed to quantify temporal elements of the narrative structure of films, television shows, and texts, is the subject of Nora Dimmock’s presentation Visualizing Temporal Narrative. The collaboration between the library’s Digital Humanities Center and University of Rochester English Professor Joel Burges involves developing tools for data visualization and collection, and completing a digital project under the direction of Burges and Dimmock, who co-teach the semester-long class.
