Are you a UVA graduate student or upper-level undergraduate in the humanities? Interested working in our new Makerspace? The Scholars’ Lab in Alderman Library is opening a new Makerspace in Fall 2014. It will allow user experimentation with 3D modeling and printing, physical computing (e.g. Arduino, wearables) and more. We are seeking part-time student assistants…. More.
[Cross-posted from dclure.org] Launch the Exhibit This is a project that I’ve been hacking away at for some time, but only found the time (and motivation) to get it polished up and out the door over the weekend – a digital edition of the “Nicolay copy” of the Gettysburg Address, with each of the ~250….

During the Fall semester, Scholars Lab Design Architect, Jeremy Boggs and I spent time conceptualizing and sketching a web interface to house a perusable version of my ethnographic composition, Community Listening in Isle Royale National Park. Check out the project abstract below. This blog post is the first of many posts that will track our…. More.

One last little experiment with Neatline-powered interactive typesettings – this time with the ending of Yeats’ endlessly recitable “The Song of Wandering Aengus,” which, like many great poems, seems to somehow signify the entire world and nothing really in particular. I chose to use just the…. More.
[Cross-posted from dclure.org] Click here to view the exhibit. After spending the weekend tinkering around with an interactive typesetting of a couplet from Macbeth that tried to model reading as a process of zooming downward towards the end of the phrase, I became curious about experimenting with the opposite analogy – reading as an upward….

As some of you know, the Scholars’ Lab has a spiffy 3D printer, a Makerbot Replicator 2. We’ve had fun with it, printing all sorts of wonderful things. As time went on and we continued using it, we ran into a problem plenty of other folks encountered, where the plunger that pushes filament against the…. More.
Ben Jasnow and Courtney Evans (UVA Classics Graduate Students) just presented their findings at DH2013. They hypothesize that their spatial-linguistic analysis of the catalogue of ships could aid in the discovery of ancient sites. Check out their presentation here: Mapping the Catalogue of Ships Here’s a preview:
The following was co-authored and co-hacked with Claire. Claire and I went to the Arduino Hackday hosted by the Scholars’ Lab on Friday. We had no idea what we were getting into, which made it all the more fun. Jeremy brought in a bunch of Arduino kits of all shapes and sizes, and various people…. More.
