Tagger for hermeneutic markup

I’m currently interested in hermeneutic markup hence my proposal: let’s try a web based tagger that lets the user define custom tags and give him the ability to apply those tags to passages of the current web page. As Wendell pointed out, tags should be able to overlap and allow a good visibility. We could go for a firefox plugin implementation and write out the tags and tagging locally. Or ...

I’m only able to attend the second day of THATCamp, so will probably end up fitting in with someone else’s session proposal, but here are a couple of ideas I’d be interested in exploring if possible: Crowdsourcing Archival Description.  Most archive organisations have significant cataloguing backlogs, which restricts access to collections.  But they also have experience of managing volunteer cataloguing projects.  How can this experience best be translated to an online ...

I’d like to propose a brainstorming session in which we re-imagine, rethink, and reconceptualize the digital edition.  Some of the questions we could begin with include: What are current digital editions doing well?  What are they lacking?  How can we make them more useful for both professional readers and the general public?  What do we imagine the digital edition/text to look like in 5 or 10 years?  How will the ...

In addition, this session will be the place where DC participants can get copies of data that ...

What about some work related to TEXTvre / TextGrid and GATE – e.g. integration of GATE services with TEXTvre?

THATCamp London/DH2010 is being held in King’s recently renovated facility called the Anatomy Theatre and Museum (ATAM) — a Grade 1 listed space which is described as a facility “for exploration and innovation in performance and e-research.”  The ATAM’s website describes the Museum space as equipped with facilities such as “white wall storyboarding with e-beams, software to support thinking, deliberation, and creativity, an access grid equipped studio space with ...

There’s much being said, written and created around the digital humanities at the moment. There’s less, from what I can see, around digital engagement with social research. I’m an interdisciplinary social researcher (researching biblical studies/theology and disability studies). I’m interested in ways in which social research can learn from the digital humanities project. Participatory social research is interested in engaging individuals and communities, empowering them to use research in ways that ...

Where is your text going?

I am a tool builder currently focused on building a tool that facilitates transcription of manuscripts housed in digital archives like Parker on the Web and e-codices by performing image analysis to locate each line in an image, and presenting each line to the user for transcription. It really makes transcription and proofreading easier. One of the issues I need to address in my tool is how to ensure users ...

A group of us have been working on a (semi-unofficial) project to describe the narrative content within and across media objects (http://contextus.net/). Recently we have began looking at bootstrapping the system by playing with TEI marked up plays to identify basic character (and character-interaction) information in addition to our ongoing discussion about at ways to semi-automate or crowd-source the annotation process. We will be presenting some of our work at DH ...

As a participant of the upcoming THATCamp I was asked to outline a session I’d like have. Hmm… Well, I think I can brainstorm a few possibilities: Exploiting R – R is a increasingly popular open source statistical tool/programming language. I’d like to get up with others to discuss how it can be used in the digital humanities. Graphing texts – There are many ways texts can be “measured”. I can count ...
