A select database of digital books relating to the development of theology and philosophy during the Reformation and Post-Reformation/Early Modern Era (late 15th-18th c.). Late medieval and patristic works printed and referenced in the early modern era are also included. The PRDL is a project of the Junius Institute for Digital Reformation Research.
This resource is aimed at helping the humanities community collect data about the impact of programs such as professional development seminars, public humanities projects, and programs for students that prepare them for college and help them imagine humanities careers. These surveys are designed to support the humanities community in articulating the impact of its work and making the case for the resources to support it.
Provides access to an ongoing, partially crowdsourced environmental scan of early modern studies as it intersects with the digital humanities. This scan takes the form of a comprehensive directory of annotated resources, complemented by an annotated bibliography; both are structured by a ReKN-specific taxonomy.
Manicule is a standalone React/Redux web application for presenting unique printed books and manuscripts in digital facsimile. Built and designed by Liza Daly and Whitney Trettien with support from the Price Lab for Digital Humanities at the University of Pennsylvania, Manicule allows editors to build guided tours through a book, annotate the edges of interesting pages, categorize and color-code each page in the facsimile, and visualize the book’s structure.
The Virtual Paul’s Cross Project uses visual and acoustic modeling software to combine visual images from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries with measurements of these buildings made during archaeological surveys of their foundations. The Project also integrates into the visual model the look of a November day in London. The acoustic simulation recreates the acoustic properties of Paul’s Churchyard. As a result, we may hear all two hours of John Donne’s sermon for Gunpowder Day in the space of its original delivery and acoustic context.
The Digital Cavendish aims to highlight digital research and scholarly projects that focus on any aspect of the life and writings of Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle (1623–73). Research may include digital images, annotations, text-mining, cultural archives, digital portfolios of manuscript and bibliographic research, etc. Ultimately, the site will grow to build a collaborative space for Cavendish scholars and students interested in the areas of literary, historical, digital, textual, bibliographic, manuscript, cultural, feminist, queer, and critical race studies, and become a space for those who wish to share their work.
