CFP: Digital Mapping & 18th-century Visual, Material, and Built Cultures issue in Journal 18

Journal 18 is publishing an issue on Digital Mapping & 18th-century Visual, Material, and Built Cultures.

In this issue of Journal18, we seek to feature current scholarship that relies on the analytical power provided by digital mapping interfaces for the study of visual, material, and built cultures during the long eighteenth century. How do digital humanities methods and tools shape our understanding of space and place in the early modern period? What impact might digital mapping have on our historical investigations of people, objects, and their environments?

Editors’ Choice: How AI is Revolutionising the Role of the Literary Critic

Where do witches come from, and what do those places have in common? While browsing a large collection of traditional Danish folktales, the folklorist Timothy Tangherlini and his colleague Peter Broadwell, both at the University of California, Los Angeles, decided to find out.

Report: Across the Great Divide

From “Across the Great Divide: Findings and Possibilities for Action from the 2016 Summit Meeting of Academic Libraries and University Presses with Administrative Relationships”:

Partnerships and collaborations have become standard responses to the multiple challenges that both higher education and scholarly publishing face. Organizing the work of the academy, either on one campus or across institutions, around collaborative partnerships often enables cost reduction, increases efficiencies, and perhaps most usefully, builds connections between distinct domains to achieve greater strategic impact. In the area of scholarly communication, new or revived partnerships between the university press and the academic research library are an opportunity to re-imagine functions that have been separated from one another through custom, convenience, professional practices, or standard administrative operation.

Funding: The Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture’s Digital Collections Fellowship

From the post:

It’s clear that #VastEarlyAmerica includes not only an expansive conceptual, geographical, and chronological scope, but also new and exciting methodologies. The possibilities for doing digital historical scholarship, from research to publication platforms, have expanded exponentially over the last decade; I find this a tremendously encouraging sign about the vitality and future of our field. I also see an important opportunity and imperative for increased engagement on the part of individuals and institutions to think forward, and pay it forward.

I recently released the v2.0-alpha version of Hover UI Kit, which is a tool for building VR/AR user interfaces. Of course, as an “alpha” release, there are bound to be bugs and other issues. The best way to test out a tool is to actually use it… which leads to today’s development update. The video below shows a glowing, interactive, force-directed graph in room-scale VR. Users can reach their hands directly into the scene to interact with both the graph and the menu interfaces.
