"The Media History Digital Library is a massive archive of documents about the history film, television, and radio. The library can now be searched and the documents viewed online through MHDL's new site called the Lantern. On Lantern you will find reviews and critiques of movies, books and playbills, many periodicals about the movie, television, and radio industries. Your search can be refined according to date, language, and publication type. You can also browse through collections curated by MHDL.

Applications for Education

"Two thoughts came to mind as I browsed through MHDL's Lantern. First, it's obviously an excellent resource for students studying the history and development of media. Second, through MHDL's Lantern you could find some good examples of how to write a critique. Your students could use those as models for writing their own critiques of movies or even of books."

Colorful Data Visualizations from the 1800s

Colorful Data Visualizations from the 1800s | History 2[+or less 3].0 | Scoop.it

Good data visualization helps us see the meaning in data, hence it has always been an important tool. Today computers crunch numbers and design programs help us visualize data in many ways, from infographics to interactives. But in a time before those tools, designers were creating truly beautiful work that should be an inspiration to anyone working today.

These maps are pulled from the 1870 edition of the Statistical Atlas of the United States, visualizing data from the 1870 census. Each cover a different aspect of the rapidly changing America. While the book is full of detailed visualizations, these maps are particularly notable. The choice of visual presentation and vibrant color palettes make them enticing (and a little surprising) seeing as they’re from the staunch Victorian era.
These just prove that no matter how tedious the subject, you can always inject a little creativity.

Schematic of Structures: Charting History's Most Significant Works of Architecture

Schematic of Structures: Charting History's Most Significant Works of Architecture | History 2[+or less 3].0 | Scoop.it

Yet another creation has rolled off the powerhouse infographics assembly line over at Pop Chart Lab, and this time, the indefatigable taxonomizers of alcohols and famous quotes have turned their attention to works of architecture.

The Schematic of Structures organizes what the designers describe as "90 eminent edifices erected and perfected throughout history." Arranged by height, the infographic lines up some of the greatest works envisioned and built by man since prehistory, from the Neolithic Cairn of Barnenez and the Parthenon to more modern creations like London's Gherkin and the Burj Khalifa.

Iconostory: Minimalist Designs Represent History | History 2[+or less 3].0 | Scoop.it

From the big bang all the way to Usain Bolt’s 9.58 second hundred- meter dash record in 2009, French graphic designer René Mambembé takes us on a minimalist journey through history. 

With clean, simple designs to represent each major event, looking through his work is almost like taking a history quiz to see how many key moments you can identify. After the dinosaurs and the Ice Age, Mambembé starts with Cubism in the 1900′s and goes decade by decade highlighting the most memorable occasions, ending with some likely predictions for the 2010′s. Brush up on your history by trying to label each minimalist design as you scroll through!

Dommage... Il semble que le site, les données, le module de visualisation de ce projet sont dans un site réservé. Le mouvement de l'open access est conçu et pratiqué différemment, parfois même au sein de la même institution...
luiy's curator insight, April 12, 2013 3:25 PM

We live in a world of networks, of nonstop messaging and degrees of separation. So did intellectuals of the early modern age, according to new research at Stanford.

 

During the 18th century, thousands of letters, often on academic subjects like mathematics, were exchanged between scholars across Europe. Wealthy aristocrats and their tutors penned many of those letters when they were on the famed "Grand Tour" of ancient sites in Europe.

 

A pioneering digital visualization project has allowedGiovanna Ceserani, an associate professor of classics, to map the routes of thousands of British and Irish elite travelers who went to Italy in the heyday of the Grand Tour.

Ceserani's digital humanities project, the Grand Tour Travelers, has uncovered unexpectedly close connections between intellectuals, illuminated the rise and fall of cities, and occasionally offered warnings about how visualization can sometimes prove misleading.

Analysis of digital interpretations of the records of over 6,000 travelers from the British Isles illustrate just how small the elite world of tourists in this period was, as well as how, "irrespective of profession and social status, travel abroad seems to have lowered social boundaries and enabled otherwise unlikely connections,"

 

Ceserani said.

The project began with the encoding of a digitized version of the Dictionary of British and Irish Travelers to Italy, 1701-1800, generously supplied by the Paul Mellon Centre in London. For each traveler, Ceserani and her team recorded the sites they visited, the dates of their visits and their birthplace and year, as well as their area of expertise, educational background and social status, among other variables.

 

A scholar with an interest in how classical sites in Italy influenced broader European culture, Ceserani wanted to trace "the actual movements of scholars, of travelers," as they undertook journeys across Europe, often coming into contact with other travelers as they did so.

 

Digital humanities experts within the Mapping the Republic of Letters project, of which Ceserani is a core member, helped Ceserani build the platforms "to place these objects and events onto maps and graphs, visualizing in revealing ways our material."
