Discovering Digital Medievalists

A short response on the Humanist Discussion Group about journal editing software was enough to send me on a discovery trip this morning to a journal about which I was previously unaware: Digital Medievalist.

Web 2.0 and/or Semantic Web?

The eHumanities Enhanced Publication (EP) project is envisioned as a hybrid platform that leverages Web 2.0 participatory modes of scholarly communication combined with formalized content structures imposed by Semantic Web formats. Translating this vision into a database design and formalized object relationships brings into focus contemporary tensions related to scholarly communication in the digital era. [...]

What difference does a website make?

A website that presents the collection through gorgeous visuals is now considered a must for any self-respecting museum. Photographs of objects, of exhibitions and of the museum itself are increasingly frequent interfaces, linking museums, visitors, experts, collections. How are users … Continue reading

Enhancement: Issues of Form and Content

I am frequently impressed by the stunning designs of websites maintained by colleagues, research projects, and academic institutions, which strikingly refute the conventional stereotype of monochrome staidness and simplicity associated with scholarly labor. Examples of beautiful scholarly sites abound, but three serve to illustrate such contrast to the stereotype: the site of the department program [...]

Why enhancement? Part 1

As we commence to complete this short six-month SURFFoundation project designed to ‘enhance’ four traditionally-published scholarly books, it seems appropriate to reflect on the ‘why’ of it all. This basic question became salient during comments made after a recently-held (21 April) workshop for the contributors of one of the four books, Virtual Knowledge, a workshop intended to train and provide practice to the group of 17 editors and authors involved in the project to use the Web platform WordPress that had been selected for enhancing this book (see book Website under construction). The salience took many forms, one of which [...]
