      This is a screencast of the demo of RLetters and evoText that I presented for the DHSI Colloquium at DHSI 2012. RLetters is a general web application designed to let users perform digital humanities textual analyses of a large corpus of journal articles. evoText, then, is my group's installation of RLetters (with Grant Ramsey and others at the University of Notre Dame), designed to provide for study of the journal literature in the evolutionary sciences (biology, psychology, anthropology, etc.). In the video, I describe the search features available in RLetters, the dataset creation, and the various currently available analysis tools. I also talk a bit about RLetters development. The features described in the demo were current as of 6/5/12, but things are under rapid development, so they may well have changed since this video was uploaded! RLetters and evoText are both publicly available, open source tools. The RLetters website is found at http://charlespence.net/rletters, and evoText can be found at http://evotext.crc.nd.edu.

      • DHSI Plenary Lecture: "Digital Humanities Archive Fever"


        from MITH in MD / Added

        MITH Associate Director Professor Matthew Kirschenbaum gave the plenary talk at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) on June 6, 2011. Kirschenbaum described his talk: "Today's born-digital cultural and creative output will be the cultural heritage of tomorrow. In this talk I will draw from my experiences on three recent projects---Approaches to Managing and Collecting Born-Digital Literary Materials for Scholarly Use, Preserving Virtual Worlds, and Digital Forensics and Born-Digital Content in Cultural Heritage Collections---to articulate a research agenda at the intersection of digital humanities, digital preservation, and personal digital archives. The issues will be framed in relation to wider topics, including digital materiality, retro computing, digital wills and legacies, and computer history."
