INKE Modeling & Prototyping researcher Jon Saklofske recently presented a paper at the NASSR (North American Society for the Study of Romanticism) in Washington DC called: “Digital doors of perception: Illuminating Blake through new knowledge environments.”  The paper discussed ways in which tools like NewRadial draw inspiration from William Blake’s inventive and “tinkering” kinds of […]

Deterritorialization of Scholarship In The Digital Era

Posted by on Jun 9, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping

[Submitted by Adam Foster] If one is to mobilize this critical attitude seen in Foucault’s work in order to go beyond mere criticism to the realm of creating something positive (either out of new ideas or by transforming the old), they must go beyond Foucault and consider Deleuze and Guattari’s concepts of deterritorialization and reterritorialization. […]

Foucault’s Critical Attitude As A Means of Reimagining The Digital Humanities

Posted by on May 6, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping

[Submitted by Adam Foster] Setting out with the task of creating a model-less Digital Humanities – that is, one that evades strict restrictions on what actions the user is able to undertake in the vein of Jacques Ranciere’s politics of the police state – one should not begin with a set goal in mind, but […]

The Digital Humanities: An Accidental Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

Posted by on Mar 26, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping

[Submitted by Adam Foster] Past blogs[1] I’ve written have argued there is an inherent politics to academia. Drawing on Gilles Deleuze’s notion of State philosophy – that is to say, a philosophy that renders the thinker“a strictly dependent organ with an autonomy that is only imagined yet is sufficient to divest those whose job it […]

The Political Aesthetics of Digital Humanities Environments

Posted by on Feb 17, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping

[Submitted by Adam Foster]             My previous blog for INKE (See “Policing The State of Scholarship” [1]) conceived of scholarship and academia as being akin to a state, with strict laws, rules, regulations and norms akin to modern civilization; only certain things are allowed, and one must adhere to the rules of society. To elect […]

The Predicament of Coded Language

Posted by on Feb 12, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping, Projects

[submitted by Marc Muschler] Over the course of the last several weeks I have attempted to code a modular adapter for NewRadial. Adapters are what make NewRadial work so efficiently; they allow for communication between NewRadial and a database by converting the responses received from a web service into the native format that NewRadial utilizes. […]

Posted by on Jan 22, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping

Ventures such as Worldcat and Zotero seek to catalogue the entirety of scholarly manuscripts and articles, and make them accessible to any scholar. This seems like a […]
