El Google Maps del Imperio Romano | Humanidades Digitales | Scoop.it

¿Te imaginas poder recorrer la antigua geografía del Mediterráneo desde la península Ibérica hasta Mesopotamia? El Proyecto Pelagios te permite hacerlo. A través de esta iniciativa internacional, se ha conseguido la digitalización de todos los datos geográficos obtenidos a partir de fuentes antiguas. El resultado es un mapa interactivo en el que se pueden encontrar las principales ciudades de la Antigua Roma y el trazado de las carreteras y vías de comunicación.

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."

Afghanistan Style In The '20s Through '70s: Photographs Show A Lost , Fashionable Time | Humanidades Digitales | Scoop.it

Instead of shelled out homes and veiled women, the pictures show women wearing pencil skirts and beehive hairdos; students sporting stylish scarves around their necks and frilly blouses; men in blazers and striped shirts and models lounging on couches decked out in cable-knit sweaters and goat-skin coats, which were the country's greatest fashion export in the '60s.

“The challenge and the opportunity for humanities is how do you quickly analyze all this data?”

Chad Gaffield's curator insight, April 22, 2013 7:31 PM

the keys for me: comfort with interpreting complexity, engaging diversity, embracing creativity esp with both structured and unstructured text, images and sounds
