Polish immigration to Luxembourg – life, work and integration. Online discourse analysis of social media

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 1 minutes

The presentation shows the results of Anna Bączkowska's research conducted at the University in Luxembourg over the last three months. It focuses on the analysis of immigration discourse retrieved from social media created by Polish immigrants to Luxembourg. The analysis is based on the polska.lu forum which spans the last 15 years. The data were extracted both manually and automatically; thus, three subcorpora were created. The language used by forum interactants was investigated with the aid of corpus linguistics tools in order to notice some trends and tendencies in lexical choices of the forum users as well as the prevailing topics.   Wednesday, 28 September 2022 14.00 - 15.00 C²DH Open Space 28 September 2022 Contemporary history of Luxembourg Migration history Hands-on History Published Hide image in content detail

19C RLT: Nineteenth-Century Russian Literature in Translation

Source: Price Lab for Digital Humanities | Reading time: 1 minutes

Project Start Date:  September, 2020 This project investigates the role of translation in nineteenth-century Russian literature’s rise to prominence in world literature as a case study in the processes whereby a nationally or linguistically defined literature may achieve circulation and recognition on a global level. We seek to understand the ways in which the canon of Russian literature was conceptualized and composed differently in different translated contexts; to query Pascale Casanova’s claim that Paris was the most important “capital” of the “World Republic of Letters”; and to determine which other locales played a significant role in the process of a “peripheral” literature’s incorporation into “world literature” in the space of less than a century. 19C RLT currently tracks book publications of works by Pushkin, Gogol, Turgenev, Tolstoy, and Dostoevsky into English, French, and German from the death of Pushkin in 1837 to the outbreak of the Great War in 1914, comprising a growing database as well as maps, graphs, and other visualizations of the data. Future phases are planned to add more authors and expand the scope to include other global contexts in which Russian literature became an important translated literature in the twentieth century and beyond.

Do you want your Trove newspaper articles in bulk? Meet the new Trove Newspaper Harvester Python package!

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 1 minutes

The Trove Newspaper Harvester has been around in different forms for more than a decade. It helps you download all the articles in a Trove newspaper search, opening up new possibilities for large-scale analysis. You can use it as a command-line tool by installing a Python package, or through the Trove Newspaper Harvester section of the GLAM Workbench. I’ve just overhauled development of the Python package. The new trove-newspaper-harvester replaces the old troveharvester repository. The command-line interface remains the same (with a few new options), so it’s really a drop in replacement. Read the full documentation of the new package for more details. Here’s a summary of the changes: the package can now be used as a library (that you incorporate into your own code) as well as a standalone command-line tool – this means you can embed the harvester in your own tools or workflows both the library and the CLI now let you set the names of the directories in which your harvests will be saved – this makes it easier to organise your harvests into groups and give them meaningful names the harvesting process now saves results into a newline-delimited JSON file (one JSON object per line) – the library has a save_csv() option to convert this to a CSV file, while the CLI automatically converts the results to CSV to maintain compatibility with previous versions behind the scenes, the package is now developed and maintained using nbdev – this means the code and documentation are all generated from a set of Jupyter notebooks the Jupyter notebooks include a variety of automatic tests which should make maintenance and development much easier in the future I’ve also updated the Trove Newspaper Harvester section of the GLAM Workbench to use the new package. The new core library will make it easier to develop more complex harvesting examples – for example, searching for articles from a specific day across a range of years. If you find any problems, or want to suggest improvements, please raise an issue.

Navigating the centuries with the ‘Mapping of the Republic of Letters’ project.

Source: OpenMethods | Reading time: 6 minutes

In this post, we reach back in time to showcase an older project and highlight its impact on data visualization in Digital Humanities as well as its good practices to make different layers of scholarship available for increased transparency and reusability.   Developed at Stanford with other research partners ('Cultures of Knowledge' at Oxford, the Groupe d'Alembert at CNRS, the KKCC-Circulation of Knowledge and Learned Practices in the 17th-century Dutch Republic, the DensityDesign ResearchLab), the 'Mapping of the Republic of Letters Project' aimed at digitizing and visualizing the intellectual community throughout the XVI and XVIII centuries known as 'Republic of Letters' (an overview of the concept can be found in Bots and Waquet, 1997), to get a better sense of the shape, size and associated intellectual network, its inherent complexities and  boundaries. Below we highlight the different, interrelated layers of making project outputs available and reusable on the long term (way before FAIR data became a widespread policy imperative!): methodological reflections, interactive visualizations, the associated data and its data model schema. All of these layers are published in a trusted repository and are interlinked with each other via their Persistent Identifiers. [Click ‘Read more’ for the full post!]

From 48 PDFs to one searchable database – opening up the Tasmanian Post Office Directories with the GLAM Workbench

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 4 minutes

A few weeks ago I created a new search interface to the NSW Post Office Directories from 1886 to 1908. Since then, I’ve used the same process on the Sydney Telephone Directories from 1926 to 1954. Both of these publications had been digitised by the State Library of NSW and made available through Trove. To build the new interfaces I downloaded the text from Trove, indexed it by line, and linked it back to the online page images. But there are similar directories from other states that are not available through Trove. The Tasmanian Post Office Directory, for example, has been digitised between 1890 and 1948 and made available as 48 individual PDF files from Libraries Tasmania. While it’s great that they’ve been digitised, it’s not really possible to search them without downloading all the P…

Source: Price Lab for Digital Humanities | Reading time: 1 minutes

FHA Credit, Redlining, and Rental Housing in Metropolitan America Project Start Date:  September, 2022 “Mortgaging Out” is a digital history project that illuminates the  impact of Federal Housing Administration credit policies  on the availability of affordable rental housing during and immediately following World War II. Scholars have illuminated the impact of redlining on  mortgage lending, demonstrating how African American homebuyers, in particular, were often locked out of the midcentury housing boom. This project shifts the focus to FHA-insured apartment complexes. Drawing upon  a comprehensive data set FHA mortgage insurance data that catalogues more than 50,000 FHA-insured apartment buildings, the project maps the location, size (by unit count), and construction dates of roughly 7,000 projects constructed under the FHA wartime housing program (Section 608, 1942-1950). Future versions of the map may include FHA-backed market-rate multifamily housing (Section 207) as well as multifamily rental projects on urban renewal sites (Section 220) and for those displaced from urban renewal sites (Section 221).  Insert an Image:  Co-Investigators:  Laura Eckstein and J.D.

What is slow memory? A discussion around an emergent concept

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 1 minutes

In this presentation, Frédéric Calvert will talk about the COST action SlowMemo. At the core of this project lays the emergent concept of 'slow memory', that is intended to help us think from new angles about how societies and individuals remember the pasts that meaningfully affect their present and future. It begins from the premise that we are quite skilled (and have much practice) commemorating sudden or extreme events such as wars, atrocities or catastrophes. But we are less certain about how to reckon with slow-moving transformations that may be just as impactful, such as climate change, deindustrialization, or the gradual expansion of social and political rights.   Wednesday, 21 September 2022 14.00 - 15.00 C²DH Open Space 21 September 2022 Digital history & historiography Digital methods Methodology Research seminars Published Hide image in content detail

Representing Persons and Objects in Complex Historical Events using the Event Model F

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 23 minutes

The digital representation and publishing of human history on the web has so far been stuck at the digital unlocking of collections of historical items. Those collections are described by metadata mostly for curation and for findability metadata that are put on the web in the manner of a library catalog. Usually, there is little on ‘aboutness’. This is unfortunate, as modern representations of knowledge and web-based interactive presentation techniques offer ample opportunities for a more complex representation and richer interaction with digital history. In this contribution, we argue for a history in digital data that is treated for what it is: an interpretation, like all history, while remaining traceable to its information carriers.

Making NSW Postal Directories (and other digitised directories) easier to search with the GLAM Workbench and Datasette

For example, the NSW Postal Directories from 1886 to 1908 and 1909 to 1950 have been digitised by the State Library of NSW and made available through Trove. The directories list residences and businesses by name and street location. Using them we can explore changes in the use of Parramatta Road across 60 years of history. But there’s a problem. While you can browse the directories page by page, searching is clunky. Trove’s main search indexes the contents of the directories by ‘article’. Each ‘article’ can be many pages long, so it’s difficult to focus in on the matching text. Clic…

Drama Critiques’ Database

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 22 minutes

Drama Critiques’ dataset was produced as part of Mylène Maignant’s PhD project at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (Ulm) between 2018 and 2022. Her research aims to explore the reception of contemporary London theatre (2010 to 2020) by analysing a large corpus based on the reviews written by two distinct groups of theatre critics: the journalistic one on the one hand, and the digital one on the other hand (bloggers). By relying partly on the data made available by Theatre Record (https://www.theatrerecord.com/) and by automatically extracting the content of 28 blogs, we built a corpus constituting more than 40,000 theatre reviews. Only 36,000 are open access, as some of the bloggers have not given their authorisation yet. The purpose of this data collection consisted of exploring the similarities and differences between these two literary communities. We were interested in better understanding the cultural discourse both journalists and bloggers construct. Given the amount of data, we relied on digital technologies to investigate this field. Using various digital techniques, such as computational linguistics, sentiment analysis, and Geographic Information Systems, we conducted a number of different analyses to map this cultural phenomenon. If some publications have already tackled the literary theme of English digital theatre criticism, none of them have examined it from a computational perspective. Drama Critiques’ dataset is then the first corpus which not only offers so many contemporary reviews based on journalists and bloggers’ publications, but which also proposes a study of its content (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.6799656).

Nationalizing Epics

Project Start Date:  August, 2021 National Epics will run from Albania and Algeria to Vietnam and Wales, an alphabetical organization that reproduces the sovereign, Olympian starkness of nationalism. Each National Epics author also contributes to nationalepics.com, initially by briefly discussing how a designated territorial space shapes or is shaped by "epical" texts that tell its story to the world. Collectively and cumulatively, we will help augment the emergent disciplinary field known as critical nationalism studies. Nationalepics.com is developing in parallel with National Epics, a collaborative work of c. 83 or 84 chapters, to be published by Oxford University Press (UK) and edited by David Wallace. While National Epics suggests a stabilized outcome, a multi-volume book with reference value, nationalepics.com evokes the process of getting there, acknowledging that the nature and dynamics of nationalism, and the texts that serve or subvert it, never rest. And while most such large-scale projects develop behind closed doors, nationalepics.com aims to share resources and air critical issues along the way.

Detecting Genre in Pitchfork Reviews Project Start Date:  August, 2021 We analyze 23,000 reviews from Pitchfork.com to establish a network of over 7,000 artists based on their co-presence in reviews. We use Gephi's (Louvain community detection) modularity class feature to sort the network into closely connected groups. However, because this process is non-deterministic, we improve on its results by running it 10,000 times. Using this novel "metamodularity" method we can show how often any two artists were sorted into the same group. For instance, the jazz musician Alice Coltrane was grouped with John Coltrane 10,000 times, with Sly and the Family Stone 4,939 times, and with Guns n’ Roses one time. With these data, we can visualize how the largely undifferentiated mass of artists fragments into more and more connected groups could be described as genres. While some of the genres suggested by this method are incredibly specific, one notable exception is the group of African American musicians, which is remarkably large and stable. The artists within it range from Flying Lotus to Motown legend Marvin Gaye to trap rapper Young Thug to R&B singer-songwriter Sade to gangster rapper Tupac Shakur to funk innovators Funkadelic to cross-over hip hop star Cardi B. This is a far more capacious group than most rock clusters along aesthetic, market, and even historic grounds. This may reflect real world connections, yet it is also possible that this metamodularity difference reflects a bias at Pitchfork, where a (historically) rock-oriented hipster aesthetic and a (historically) largely white male audience may correspond to a relative lack of nuance when covering Black artists (historically). In any case, it is fair to say based on these data that Pitchfork has written about Black artists in a structurally unique way over the years relative to their coverage of white artists.

The HistorESCH project is a collaboration between Nuit de la Culture and the PHACS-team of public historians at the University of Luxembourg to tell the history of the city through the personal memories and objects of the Escher community. HistorESCH: Escher Geschichten a 25 Objeten erzielt is an exhibition that will celebrate a year of engagement with the Escher community. The first phase of this project involved community workshops and crowdsourcing to collect photographs of potential objects to present at this exhibition. The second phase consisted of the categorisation of these objects by our Citizen Historian Circle (CHiC) and an online vote to select the objects for the exhibition. The everyday objects bear witness to a personal approach to history. They tell the story of workers, sportsmen, or the distant past of the city. The free exhibition will showcase 25 of the most popular objects in the Pop-Up store in the shopping street of Esch-sur-Alzette. Each visitor will receive an exhibition catalogue in their preferred language (French, Luxembourgish or English) to read the personal anecdote and historical context of the object.   Opening hours 2 – 24 September, Monday – Saturday from 13.00-18.00. Free entrance. Location Pop-Up Store, 121 Rue de l'Alzette, 4011 Esch-sur-Alzette For more information, visit our website at www.historesch.lu or contact us at info@historesch.lu. 2 September 2022 to 24 September 2022 Public History as the New Citizen Science of the Past (PHACS) Public History Regional history Outreach Published Photo credits: Jo Diseviscourt

Doing Experimental Media Archaeology: Practice & Theory

The conference is organised by the C²DH within the context of the project "Doing Experimental Media Archaeology: Practice & Theory" (DEMA), funded by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR). There has been a growing interest in the use of experimental approaches to the study of media histories and their cultures. An increasing number of scholars researching at the intersection of media history and theory are breaking new ground while working with archival sources and artefacts in experimental ways, e.g. through historical re-enactments and hands-on simulations. In their 2014 essay “Experimental Media Archaeology: A Plea for New Directions”, Andreas Fickers and Annie van den Oever underline the heuristic potential of hands-on approaches for re-sensitising scholars to the materiality of …

Now, if there’s a link to a digitised version of the work in Trove, that link will be saved in Zotero’s url field. This makes it quicker and easier to view digitised items – just click on the ‘URL’ label in Zotero to open the link.

Katukinan, Arawan, and Harakmbut are small language families spoken in south-western Amazonia. These families have received some attention, but there are no consistently transcribed and machine-readable datasets available for them. We address this lacuna by introducing the first publicly available linguistic dataset of Arawan languages as the first part of the Katukinan-Arawan-Harakmbut Database, created with the goal of providing and regularly updating a list of lexical items in a consistent transcription and with cognacy annotation. The database is being developed to be used in quantitative and genealogical investigations. Published on 2022-08-03 10:46:09

Academic Title:  Assistant Professor, Russian and East European Studies, University of Pennsylvania D. Brian Kim is a specialist in Russian literature of the long nineteenth century, translation studies, and literary and cultural relationships between Russia, Western Europe, and East Asia.  Dr. Kim's research broadly asks how Russians viewed and engaged in communication across languages and cultures throughout history, both within the Russian Empire and beyond its borders, and what factors motivated writers, translators, and lexicographers as they pursued their work in transnational contexts. His current book project examines the cultures, practices, and ideologies of multilingualism in imperial Russia, focusing on the interplay between literature and education to investigate a national imaginary that sought to valorize foreign languages as a way to bridge various cultural gaps between Russia and points beyond. At Penn, Dr. Kim regularly offers courses on nineteenth-century Russian literary and cultural history, including seminars on Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, as well as occasional seminars on such topics as Russian identity and its permutations in historical context, and the history and sociology of reading in imperial Russia.

Just pass the url of a digitised book or journal as a parameter named url to https://trove-proxy.herokuapp.com/metadata/. For example: https://trove-proxy.herokuapp.com/metadata/?url=https://nla.gov.au/nla.obj-2906940941 I’ve created a simple bookmarklet to make it simpler to open the proxy.

Where did all those NSW articles go? Trove Newspapers Data Dashboard update!

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 1 minutes

I was looking at my Trove Newspapers Data Dashboard again last night trying to figure out why the number of newspaper articles from NSW seemed to have dropped by more than 700,000 since my harvesting began. It took me a while to figure out, but it seems that the search index was rebuilt on 31 May, and that caused some major shifts in the distribution of articles by state, as reported by the main result API. So the indexing of the articles changed, not the actual number of articles. Interestingly, the number of articles by state reported by the newspaper API doesn’t show the same fluctuations. This adds another layer of complexity to understanding how Trove changes over time. To try and document such things, I’ve added a ‘Significant events’ section to the Dashboard. I’ve also included a new ‘Total articles by publication state’ section that compares results from the result and newspaper APIs. This should make it easier to identify such issues in the future.

This special episode of the Price Lab Podcast is dedicated to our colleague and friend Scott Enderle who died on September 11, 2021. Scott was one of the DH Specialists associated with the Price Lab and a leading thinker and innovator in quantitative literary analysis. More importantly, he was simply one of the best people most of us knew. This episode combines some found audio of Scott talking about his work with thoughts and reflections from some of the people with whom he worked closely. Content Warning: This episode is very different from the others. It is quite sad at times and it deals with the death of a beloved member of our community, Scott Enderle. We were so lucky to get to work with Scott everyday at Penn but his presence loomed large in digital humanities and he had friends, fans, and collaborators all over the world. We're making this episode available for everyone but especially for those who knew and admired Scott.

Assessing Attitudes Towards Wood in the Context of Family Habits: Potential for Reuse of Raw Data from a Questionnaire Survey

The dataset covers a statistically representative quantitative questionnaire survey conducted with 430 children with the aim of assessing their knowledge, habits and attitudes towards wood and trees. The goal of the study was to examine the variables that affect environmental awareness and the use of wood in the future. The dataset contains 430 rows (participants) and 49 columns (variables). Data has a reuse potential in the fields of childhood pedagogy and environmental education research but also opens new ways for demonstrating the formula of statistical representativeness or machine-learning analyses such as clustering techniques, associative learning, or decision trees.

Calling all Tasmanian historians – you can now save resources from Libraries Tasmania into Zotero!

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 1 minutes

I’ve created a Zotero translator for the Libraries Tasmania catalogue. Using it, you can save metadata and digital resources to your own research database with a single click. Libraries Tasmania actually has three catalogues rolled into one – the main library catalogue, the Archives catalogue, and the Names Index. The translator works across all three. Features include: Select and save items from a page of search results. Save individual items across the full range of formats. (By default, individual records in the catalogue open in a modal overlay. For Zotero to recognise the item you need to click on the Permalink button and open the record on a separate page.) Automatically download digital images and PDFs attached to records. This works when the record points to a particular page – it won’t download multiple images from a single link. However, if a record contains multiple links to digitised pages (such as the Convict records in the Names Index), you’ll get them all! Fields in the Archives catalogue and Name Index that don’t map to Zotero properties are saved as key/value pairs in Zotero’s ‘Extra’ field The translator is now included in the main Zotero repository so should install and update itself automatically. If the Zotero browser extension doesn’t seem to be detecting Libraries Tasmania items you can force an update by right clicking on the Zotero icon in your browser toolbar and clicking on Preferences > Advanced > Update translators. My work on this translator was not entirely altruistic – it’s going to be very useful in the Everyday Heritage project as Kate Bagnall and I try to bring together sources relating to Chinese heritage in Tasmania. But I’m also very happy to be able to update my spreadsheet of Zotero support in Australian GLAM organisations and put Libraries Tasmania in the green! #dhhacks

Bearing a Bag-of-Tales: An Open Corpus of Annotated Folktales for Reproducible Research

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 19 minutes

Motifs in folktales and myths have been identified and articulated by scholars, and the computational identification and discovery of such motifs is an area of ongoing research. Achieving this goal means meeting scientific requirements (that methods be comparable and replicable) and requirements for collaboration (that multi-disciplinary teams can reliably access data). To support those requirements, access to consistent reference datasets is needed. Unfortunately, these datasets are not openly available in a format that supports their use in data science. Here we report work in progress toward this goal, having converted the Ashliman Folktexts collection into a public dataset of annotated tale texts. The data can be accessed at doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.6575263. Published on 2022-06-24 11:47:11

The Charles Translator for Ukraine: A development by LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ

Source: CLARIN ERIC | Reading time: 1 minutes

The Charles Translator for Ukraine: A development by LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ The automatic translator for Czech and Ukrainian, recently developed at the Institute of Formal and Applied Linguistics (ÚFAL) of Charles University, is now also available as a mobile application for Android. Users can download the Charles Translator for Ukraine app free of charge from the Google Play store.  The translator was developed with support of the LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ, and runs on the LINDAT technical infrastructure. It was developed in record time after the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the subsequent wave of refugees into the Czech Republic, and it has been freely available for non-commercial purposes since mid-March at https://translator.cuni.cz. The web service has logged almost a quarter of a million hits in April, which, together with the demand from owners of smart mobile devices running Android, has triggered the development of a mobile application.  The application allows translation between Czech and Ukrainian in both audio and text form, and phonetic transcriptions between Latin and Cyrillic are available for translations.  The release of the mobile application is a significant event in the historical context of research and development of machine translation at the ÚFAL and also at LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ. The importance of this moment was enhanced by the introduction of the new name of the Czech-Ukrainian translation system Charles Translator for Ukraine, thereby subscribing to the brand name Charles University. With the addition of translation pairs of languages, the name should be narrowed down to Charles Translator in the future, allowing the researchers from ÚFAL to combine this new translator, developed in connection with the war in Ukraine, with the existing translation service available in LINDAT for other languages.

Under development – a Zotero translator for Libraries Tasmania!

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 1 minutes

I’ve created a Zotero translator for the Libraries Tasmania catalogue. Using it, you can save metadata and digital resources to your own research database with a single click. Libraries Tasmania actually has three catalogues rolled into one – the main library catalogue, the archives catalogue, and the names index. The translator works across all three. Features include: Select and save items from a page of search results. Save individual items across the full range of formats. (By default, individual records in the catalogue open in a modal overlay. For Zotero to recognise the item you need to click on the Permalink button and open the record on a separate page.) Automatically download digital images and PDFs attached to records. This works when the record points to a particular page – it won’t download multiple images from a single link. However, if a record contains multiple links to digitised pages (such as the Convict records in the Names Index), you’ll get them all! Fields in the Archives catalogue and Name Index that don’t map to Zotero properties are saved as key/value pairs in Zotero’s ‘Extra’ field I’ve submitted the translator for inclusion in the official repository, but you’re welcome to take it for a test run in the meantime. Just follow these steps: Find out where your Zotero data folder is. From Zotero go to Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Files and Folders and click on Show Data Directory. Open the translator file here. Then right click and choose Save as, navigate to your Zotero data folder, and save it in the ‘translators’ folder. Restart Zotero and your browser. Head to the Libraries Tasmania catalogue and try it! Let me know if you strike any problems. #dhhacks

From women's gallery to queer feminist knowledge production – Gender discourses in Museums of Industry and Technology in historical perspective

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 1 minutes

When women like two-time Nobel laureate Marie Skłodowska Curie appear in exhibitions on the history of technology and science, this might be a good sign for the visibility of women in STEM. However, it goes too far to take Curie’s presence as a proof for a gender sensitive museum practice. With initiatives like Queering Museums, museums start(ed) to discuss broader visions of gender diversity and queer(y)ing museum practices. But when and under what circumstances do museums begin to discuss what kind of gender knowledge they produce? How do museum makers reflect on gender gaps and biases in collections, exhibitions, and education, steering towards a more gender-informed museum making? Applying a Science and Technology Studies (STS) framework on selected case studies, this talk will discuss how museums put gender theory to practice and highlight the spatio-temporal situatedness of museum knowledge production about gender in historical perspective.   Wednesday, 29 June 2022 14.00 - 15.00 C²DH Open Space and Webex If you wish to participate, please send an e-mail to vanessa.napolitano@uni.lu to receive the link - or simply join us in person. 29 June 2022 Public history Cultural policies Gender studies Museology Research seminars Published Hide image in content detail

LoGaRT and RISE: Two multilingual tools from the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science

Source: OpenMethods | Reading time: 5 minutes

Introduction: This post introduces two tools developed by the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, LoGaRT and RISE with a focus on Asia and Eurasia. [...]The concept of LoGaRT - treating local gazetteers as “databases” by themselves - is an innovative and pertinent way to articulate the essence of the platform: providing opportunities for multi-level analysis from the close reading of the sources (using, for example, the carousel mode) to the large-scale, “bird’s eye view” of the materials across geographical and temporal boundaries. Local gazetteers are predominantly textual sources – this characteristic of the collection is reflected in the capabilities of LoGaRT as well, since some of its key capabilities include data search (using Chinese characters), collection and analysis, as well as tagging and dataset comparison. That said, LoGaRT also offers integrated visualization tools and supports the expansion of the collection and tagging features to the images used in a number of gazetteers. The opportunity to smoothly intertwine these visual and textual collections with Chinese historical maps (see CHMap) is an added, and much welcome, advantage of the tool, which helps to develop sophisticated and multifaceted analyses.

Undisciplined Histories of Maintenance

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 1 minutes

When Lee Vinsel and I started The Maintainers and wrote “The Innovation Delusion,” we brought our historical sensibilities to a project that we hoped would reach broader and more general audiences. In the process, we set aside some of the conventions of archive-based history and embraced approaches from different academic and non-academic fields. In this talk I’ll describe some of our choices, and how it led to some unexpected scholarly insights—and moments of joy.     Andrew Russell is a co-founder of The Maintainers with Lee Vinsel, in 2016. As a co-director, he works with Lee, Jessica, and Lauren on research projects, outreach, and a variety of organizational work that goes into maintaining the Maintainers. His background is in the history of technology, where he writes and teaches about subjects such as Internet history, technical standards, and technology in American life. He really enjoys seeing connections and patterns between maintenance in our personal lives and maintenance on broader scales, such as in organizations or state or national governments.   Monday, 4 July 2022 14.00 - 15.00 Hybrid event: C²DH Open Space and Webex If you want to participate, just come to the 4th floor of the MSH or contact vanessa.napolitano@uni.lu for the Webex link. 4 July 2022 Public history Repairing technology – fixing society?

Repairing Technology – Fixing Society?

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 2 minutes

Failures and breakdowns constitute an important element in the fundamental relationship between users and technology, and maintenance and repair are fundamental practices in everyday life. Stephen Graham and Nigel Thrift (2007) highlighted that “repair and maintenance are not incidental activities. In many ways, they are the engine room of modern economies and societies”. However, we still know very little about the actual developments of repair practices in the past and today. In his essay “Rethinking repair”, Steven Jackson (2014) therefore called for what he coined “broken world thinking”. He argues that we should take “erosion, breakdown, and decay, rather than novelty, growth, and progress, as our starting points” when we want to study consumption and use. Broken world thinking is an …

Evolving topic, evolving methods : studying the dispossession of the Jews in Luxembourg during World War II

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 2 minutes

Soon after its creation in 2018 the Fondation Luxembourgeoise de la Mémoire de la Shoah asked the newly opened C²DH to conduct a doctoral research project on the “spoliation of Jewish property during World War II in Luxembourg”. The goal and methods of this project were slightly different from those of the Special Commission for the Study of the Spoliation of Jewish Property in Luxembourg during the war 1940-1945, which gave its final report to the Luxemburgish Government in 2009. The “road-book” of the project, in the form of a series of questions, was set by the convention that framed it, signed in 2019. But as the project unfolded, this frame had to evolve. Which sources were actually available? Which research question did we want to address? Which methods did we want to use? This session of the Research Seminar will present how the project evolved since it started in January 2020 and which – sometimes very practical – challenges still lie ahead for its remaining 18 months.   Wednesday, 15 June 2022 14.00 - 15.00 C²DH Open Space and Webex If you wish to participate, please send an e-mail to vanessa.napolitano@uni.lu to receive the link - or simply join us in person. 15 June 2022 Contemporary history of Luxembourg History of the spoliation of Jewish property in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (1930s - 1950s) Holocaust Jewish history WW2 Research seminars Published Hide image in content detail

"Barvalo" ouvrira ses portes au Musée des Civilisations de l'Europe et de la Méditerranée le 10 mai 2023 à Marseille. L'exposition traitera de l'histoire des différents groupes romani (Roms, Gitans, Sinte, Manouches et Gens du Voyage) en Europe. Une histoire fortement teintée d'antitsiganisme. Conçue de manière collaborative par un groupe de 19 personnes d'origine romani et non romani, elle a permis au musée de mener en parallèle une réflexion sur ses collections en permettant de procéder à des acquisitions suggérées par le groupe ainsi qu'à une réindexation de ses fonds anciens.

La première exposition organisée au Bridderhaus, ancien hôpital de la ville (1873), renové et transformé en résidence d’artistes, est consacrée à un urbaniste qui a relevé un grand défi il y a presque cent ans : réinventer Esch-sur-Alzette en contrecarrant l’emprise croissante de l’industrie sur la capitale du Bassin minier luxembourgeois par un plan vert. Le plan d’extension d’Esch-sur-Alzette réalisé en 1924-1925 par l’urbaniste allemand Josef Stübben (1845-1936) parvient à contrebalancer les grands espaces industriels qui encerclent la ville, dont trois usines sidérurgiques, par des parcs, des allées d’arbres, des promenades, des constructions aérées, de belles places publiques pour créer une ville inspirée des cités-jardins anglaises.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it". How about playing with it? Digital games are increasingly recognised as powerful educational tools, able to shape historical culture by attracting, engaging, and emotionally involving a wider audience. The lecture series History @ Play focuses on the intersection between gaming and public history drawing from the experience of both scholars and game designers to explore the affordances of interactive narratives and digital games. Visual designer Claudia Molinari and creative writer Matteo Pozzi from the award-winning indie gaming studio We are Müesli will discuss the challenges and opportunities of designing narrative games set in modern and contemporary history.   Tuesday, 14 June 2022 17.00 – 18:30 Maison du Savoir, Auditoire 3.110 Belval Campus   The lecture will be followed by a reception.

If you have a dataset that you want to share as a searchable online database then check out Datasette – it’s a fabulous tool that provides an ever-growing range of options for exploring and publishing data. I particularly like how easy Datasette makes it to publish datasets on cloud services like Google’s Cloudrun and Heroku. A couple of weekends ago I migrated the TungWah Newspaper Index to Datasette.

Teaching the Text Encoding Initiative: Context, Community and Collaboration

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 32 minutes

In common with many technical aspects of digital humanities, the TEI has a reputation for being difficult to teach and difficult to learn, with potential practitioners put off by the large and (at first sight) intimidating set of guidelines, the seemingly complex hierarchical structure and the profusion of angle brackets. One-to-one or small group teaching in the context of a specific project is often the preferred method, where the short but steep learning curve required to engage with the TEI can be addressed in a way which is relevant to the aims and experience of the learner. This, however, is not a particularly efficient way of teaching. In this article, the authors discuss their experience of teaching (and learning) the TEI, and how lessons learned in contexts relating to specific projects might feed into the teaching of TEI in a more general setting – the Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School being the prime example.

The comparative long-term perspective will shed light on the different conditions of regional development and the cycles of boom and bust in the European context.

Tracing Changes in Shape of Historical Artefacts Across Time Using 3D Scans: A New Computational Approach

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 21 minutes

This paper pioneers a new computational approach for the study of changes in shape of objects across time. Previously, such a study was undertaken by scholars using a purely visual approach and relied on images of objects or in-person observations. This paper’s approach is based on 3D scans of historical artefacts. Sample points are extracted from these 3D scans and the distance between analogous points across different objects is computed using an approximation of the Wasserstein metric, namely the Sinkhorn distance. In this paper, the approach is demonstrated on a small set of ancient Greek vessels of the Krater, Pelike, and Kylix types, as the variation in their shapes across time is well known to archaeologists. Results offer, for the first time, a way of quantifying differences between objects. Benefits of this approach lie in its ability to quantify change, to study complex 3D material, and to analyse large datasets of objects, opening the possibility of constructing new large-scale studies of object shape across time and geographical regions. These have a range of applications in art history, archaeology, digital humanities, museology and extended reality studies. Published on 2022-05-20 12:09:58

Convert your Trove newspaper searches to an API query with just one click!

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 1 minutes

I’m thinking about the Trove Researcher Platform discussions & ways of integrating Trove with other apps and platforms (like the GLAM Workbench). As a simple demo I modifed my Trove Proxy app to convert a newspaper search url from the Trove web interface into an API query (using the trove-query-parser package). The proxy app then redirects you to the Trove API Console so you can see the results of the API query without needing a key. To make it easy to use, I created a bookmarklet that encodes your current url and feeds it to the proxy. To use it just: Drag this link to your bookmarks toolbar: Open Trove API Console. Run a search in Trove’s newspapers. Click on the bookmarklet. This little hack provides a bit of ‘glue’ to help researchers think their about search results as data, and explore other possibilities for download and analysis. #dhhacks

Vernissage of the virtual exhibition 'Minett Stories'

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 2 minutes

The virtual exhibition Minett Stories deals with the history and identity of Minett, the industrial region in southern Luxembourg, in 22 chapters. For a century (approx. 1870-1970) the Minett was shaped by iron ore mining and the iron and steel industry. Rapid economic and population growth, urbanisation and labor migration have had a major impact on the history of the region, as have economic crises, environmental pollution and precarious housing and living conditions. Remixing Industrial Pasts in the Digital Age is a project of the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH ), launched in fall 2019 and funded by the European Capital of Culture Esch2022 asbl. The "Minett Stories" virtual exhibition was developed in collaboration between the Remix team, Milan-based design studio Calibro and Bergamo-based software company Inmagik. The Remix team spent two and a half years researching and sourcing the underlying sources, designing the exhibition, and writing all the storyboards, scripts, story texts, and captions for the 22 exhibition chapters. The focus was on various forms of transmedia storytelling, including several interactive video documentaries, graphic novels, interactive maps, interactive podcasts, and two radio plays.

#CfP Digital Editorial Approaches to Medieval Charters

Source: ALLC RSS | Reading time: 2 minutes

30 Jun 2022 - 00:00 #CfP Digital Editorial Approaches to Medieval Charters (University of Lisbon, September 6th, 2022, via Zoom) In the last decades, ground-breaking digital scholarly projects have worked on modelling charters as semi-diplomatic, versioned, and linguistically glossed texts. At the same time, working groups such as the CEI have been considering the possibilities of a standard to encode medieval and early modern charters in XML, inserting diplomatics’ concepts and charter-specific markup into the framework of the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines. Hopefully, these developments allow for the interoperability of tools and resources specific to this type of documentation, promoting the replication of well-succeeded experiences in other corpora and historical traditions.…

Place-Making Narrative Data: Management Issues in the Context of Open Science and Data Curation in France

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 21 minutes

The Places dataset is still in-process and being added to on a regular basis. It is comprised of complete data management documentation and ethics documentation in English and French, concept notes in English and French, and participant data files that include .csv metadata sheets, .wav audio recordings of interviews, .jpeg photographs of the place of the interview and open ELAN .eaf transcriptions. The participant interview data relies on a narrative inquiry methodology and is collected in one-on-one interviews with researchers on the theme of anglophone expatriation and adaptation to French socio-physical space. These interviews are informal and interactive, aiming for a sharing of experience, since the researchers are, themselves, anglophone expatriates. The aim of this accompanying article is to provide information on the dataset through a concomitant reflection on the research context in France and the affordances of the increasingly powerful TGIR Huma-Num digital humanities infrastructure, as well as the tensions that are prevalent in the Franco-European space between the demands of Open Science and the restrictions of the European General Data Protection Regulations. These affordances and this tension have framed the process that has resulted in the Places data architecture. Published on 2022-05-06 11:58:37

The first myth concerns the claim that the rise of digital history has led (and will increasingly lead) to a more limited range of primary sources used in research for especially the younger generations of historians prefer easily available machine-readable datasets. The counter argument would be that historians are not at the mercy of data providers but could become more active in the digitisation decisions, not only by lobbying memory organisations…

20 Jun 2022 - 00:00 MAKING AI: Advancing creative approaches to the design of AI systems through the craft of making them AI Yesterday, a digital zine and transmedia forum, is hosting a workshop on AI’s materiality at ACM Creativity & Cognition June 20th in Venice. We are looking for participants to join us in a day of making, research and reflection with the physical materials that underpin AI systems. Those that are conventionally considered to ‘make’ AI through the design of AI systems are largely divorced from AI’s materiality and the craft of making AI. We hope to push participants beyond the theoretical knowing of AI materiality to tactile knowing through a practice-based approach to ‘making’ AI. Reorienting the focus of AI to materials and the supply chain as sites of creative intervention could leverage the potential of sensory, tactile experiences to spur re-imaginations of AI technologies and infrastructures. https://aiyesterday.com/ACM-C-C-Workshop   Project Team: Margaret McGrath, Nancy Salem, Laurel Boxall Funders: TORCH-Minderoo Fund in AI Governance

Juvenile delinquency, social unrest and national anxiety: French debates and controversies over rock’n’roll in the 1960s and 1970s

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 2 minutes

Based on a collection of local and national archival sources, police reports, and press articles, this talk will explore how rock’n’roll and pop music were received in France in the 1960s and the 1970s. Although some ‘threats,’ such as violence and loose moral at rock’n’roll concerts, were present in other countries as well, this talk shows that other so-called hazards should be read in the light of the French context. This was marked by the shadow of the dark years of the Vichy regime, the end of the Algerian war, students’ protests in May 1968, and the lasting influence of the left-wing revolutionary spirit. Florence Tamagne is associate professor in contemporary history at the University of Lille. She has notably published Histoire de l’homosexualité en Europe, Berlin, Londres, Paris (1919-1939) (Seuil, 2000), Mauvais Genre ? Une histoire des représentations de l’homosexualité (La Martinière, 2001) and Le crime du Palace.

Rawad Wehbe

Source: Price Lab for Digital Humanities | Reading time: 2 minutes

Academic Title:  Ph.D. candidate, Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, University of Pennsylvania Rawad Wehbe studies Arabic poetry, poetics, and literary theory. His dissertation examines the mukhaḍramūn—a generation of poets who lived between the pre-Islamic and Islamic era—focusing on the network of emotions surrounding the poetic experience of existing in the threshold of transition, known as khaḍramah. Drawing from theories of affect and emotion, he departs from a historical study of the mukhaḍramūn to develop a theory of khaḍramah that examines how this experience, vis-a-vis biography and anecdote, informs transformations in poetic forms indigenous to the Arabic language. Using optical character recognition and text analysis software, Rawad is compiling a digital archive of poetry collections central to his research to facilitate analysis of linguistic, stylistic, and formal patterns to explore new methods of close and distant reading. Rawad earned two MA degrees in Arabic from the University of Texas at Austin (2017) and the University of California, Los Angeles (2013). He was awarded a fellowship for the Center of Arabic Study Abroad (2014) in Amman, Jordan. Rawad received a Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship Dissertation Abroad Request (2021), Janet Lee Stevens Award in Arabic and Islamic Studies (2020) and was named a Mellon Graduate Fellow (2019). Also, he was nominated for the Texas Foreign Language Teaching Excellence Award (2017). His translations of Arabic poetry and literature appear in publications by Michigan Quarterly Review, Paris Review (forthcoming), Two Lines Press, DoubleSpeak, Words Without Borders, and Inventory.

Getting started with OpenRefine – Digital Humanities 201

Source: OpenMethods | Reading time: 4 minutes

Introduction: Open Refine, the freely accessible successor to Google Refine, is an ideal tool for cleaning up data series and thus obtaining more sustainable results. Entries can be searched in alphabetical order or sorted by frequency, so that typing errors or slightly different variants can be easily found and adjusted. For example, with the help of the software, I discovered two such discrepancies in my Augustinian Correspondence Database, which I am now able to correct with one click in the programme. I was shown that I had noted "As a reference to Jerome's letter it's not counted" five times and "As a reference to Jerome's letter, it's not counted" three times. Consequently, if I searched the database for this expression, I would not see all the results. A second discrepancy was between the entry "continuing reference (marked by Nam)" and the entry "continuing reference (marked by nam)". Thanks to Open Refine, such errors can be completely avoided in the future. The tutorial by Miriam Posner is a useful introduction to come in touch with the software. However, the first step of the installation is already out of date. While version 3.1 was still the latest when the tutorial was published, it is now version 3.5.2. Under Windows, you can now distinguish between a version that requires Java and a version with embedded OpenJDK Java, which I found very pleasing. If needed, there are links at the end of the tutorial to other introductions that go into more depth.

Networking for Historical Justice: The Application of Graph Database Management Systems to Network Analysis Projects and the Case Study of the Reparation Movement for Japanese Colonial and Wartime Atrocities

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 24 minutes

Using the reparation movement for Japanese colonial and wartime atrocities as a case study, this paper explores the applicability of graph database management systems to network analysis research and teaching in the field of digital humanities. Since the late 1980s, Asian victims of Japanese colonial and wartime atrocities (such as the infamous “comfort women” system) began to sue the Japanese government and corporations with the help of local and Japanese lawyers and activists. This paper uses the plethora of publicly available court materials produced by the movement to study social networks in this transnational historical justice movement and illustrate how graph database management systems can upgrade traditional network analysis methodologies in digital humanities. By inputting the data about lawsuits and lawyers in the movement into graph database applications like Neo4j and GraphXR, the paper demonstrates the advantages of managing network data in graph database structure in terms of scalability, modifiability, intuitive visibility, query efficiency, and analysis potential over relational database structure, which is the mainstream in network analysis research.

Tracking Trove changes over time

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 1 minutes

I’ve been doing a bit of cleaning up, trying to make some old datasets more easily available. In particular I’ve been pulling together harvests of the number of newspaper articles in Trove by year and state. My first harvests date all the way back to 2011, before there was even a Trove API. Unfortunately, I didn’t run the harvests as often as I should’ve and there are some big gaps. Nonetheless, if you’re interested in how Trove’s newspaper corpus has grown and changed over time, you might find them useful. They’re available in this repository and also in Zenodo. This chart shows how the number of newspaper articles per year in Trove has changed from 2011 to 2022. Note the rapid growth between 2011 and 2015. To try and make sure that there’s a more consistent record from now on, I’ve also created a new Git Scraper – a GitHub repository that automatically harvests and saves data at weekly intervals. As well as the number of articles by year and state, it also harvests the number of articles by newspaper and category. As mentioned, these four datasets are updated weekly. If you want to get all the changes over time, you can retrieve earlier versions from the repository’s commit history. All the datasets are CC-0 licensed and validated with Frictionless. There’s also a notebook in the GLAM Workbench that explores this sort of data.

The “Liewen am Minett” project came to life by an initiative of the Minister of Culture Robert Krieps in 1986. In the photo book’s foreword he stated that the heart of Luxembourg’s industry, “the cradle of its prosperity and the material support of national independence” – the Minett – has been unfairly overlooked, and its “new type of man” – the Minettsdäpp – largely unseen. “It is therefore a kind of injustice,” Krieps continued, “that we want to redress by doing justice to a world which, over the past ten years, has experienced deep anguish and new transformations. We present a snapshot of a part of our country whose rich facets are unknown.” The photo book, curated by Jean Back, exhibited photos of 16 amateur and professional photographers. “Liewen am Minett” was arguably the first soc…

Annotation Guidelines For narrative levels, time features, and subjective narration styles in fiction (SANTA 2).

Source: OpenMethods | Reading time: 5 minutes

Introduction: If you are looking for solutions to translate narratological concepts to annotation guidelines to tag or mark-up your texts for both qualitative and quantitative analysis, then Edward Kearns’s paper “Annotation Guidelines for narrative levels, time features, and subjective narration styles in fiction” is for you! The tag set is designed to be used in XML, but they can be flexibly adopted to other working environments too, including for instance CATMA. The use of the tags is illustrated on a corpus of modernist fiction. The guidelines have been published in a special issue of The Journal of Cultural Analytics (vol. 6, issue 4) entirely devoted to the illustration of the Systematic Analysis of Narrative levels Through Annotation (SANTA) project, serving as the broader intellectual context to the guidelines. All articles in the special issue are open peer reviewed , open access, and are available in both PDF and XML formats. [Click ‘Read more’ for the full post!]

Making connections: new ways of accessing cultural heritage online

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 2 minutes

This presentation will consider the limits of search for exploring digital cultural heritage and discuss some of the alternative modes of discovery that become possible through data linking and visualisation. It will draw on the experience of two projects: the Heritage Connector and the Congruence Engine. Both are concerned with unlocking the full potential of museum catalogues, which are largely unstructured, variable in consistency and overwhelmingly composed of what might be described as ‘thin’ records. The Heritage Connector project sought to build links at scale between the collections of the UK’s Science Museum Group, the Victoria and Albert Museum and Wikidata, and the Congruence Engine initiative expands this work to include data from more than 20 cultural heritage and university partners. New forms of visualisation and access are at the heart of these interdisciplinary collaborations. The presentation will conclude by considering how useful these methods might be for exploring vast born-digital collections, such as web and social media archives.     Jane Winters is Chair of Digital Humanities and Pro-Dean for Libraries at the School of Advanced Study, University of London. Her research interests include digital history, the archived web, big data for humanities research, new forms of scholarly communication, and open access publishing. She is a Fellow and Councillor of the Royal Historical Society.   Wednesday, 27 April 2022 14.00 - 15.00 Online - Webex If you want to participate, please send an e-mail to vanessa.napolitano@uni.lu to receive the link. 27 April 2022 Digital history & historiography Data Science Visualisation Hands-on History Published Section of a CB1 manual telephone exchange switchboard, 1925–1960, Science Museum Group Collection, CC BY-NC-SA 4.0.
