Daniel Sondheim presented a paper the INKE Textual Studies team’s conference Beyond Accessibility: Textual Studies in the 21st Century, in Victoria, BC. The paper was written with the help of Geoffrey Rockwell, Stan Ruecker, Mihaela Ilovan, Luciano Frizzera, and Jennifer Windsor, and was entitled “From Print to the Web and Back: The Current State of Scholarly Editions.”
Susan Brown and Stan Ruecker taught a course at the 2012 Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) in Victoria, BC, entitled “Online Tools for Literary Analysis.” Luciano Frizzera assisted them. Registration in the course was full.
INKE ID members attended the annual SDH/SEMI conference at Congress 2012 of the Humanities and Social Sciences. The conference was held in Waterloo, Ontario, on May 28-30. Members presented a panel entitled “Interface to Interface Research,” speaking about year three projects of the ID team. Introductions and conclusions were given by Stan Ruecker, Geoffrey Rockwell, and Milena Radzikowska; Luciano Frizzera spoke about a workflow interface that ID is developing for editorial processes; Jennifer Windsor analyzed and explained the design of scholarly e-readers; Daniel Sondheim compared scholarly editions in print and on the Web; and Geoffrey Rockwell presented RIPr, ID’s rich prospect browser for studying interface design. In another session, Mihaela Ilovan presented a paper on CiteLens, a tool for exploring humanist citation practices by means of visualizations. SDH/SEMI was very well attended this year, and all of the talks went well.
The ID team is producing a Flash-based interface that will describe the workflow that is typically involved in editorial process management. In doing so, we are building off previous work regarding structured surfaces, which provide extra layers of meaning to graphs and other representations of data. By applying the concept of structured surfaces to the design of an interface, we hope to create an innovative tool that will be of use to journal editors and that will advance the field of interface design. An screenshot of the workflow interface can be seen below.
The Textual Studies INKE group has a project blog detailing their work on ArchBook. ArchBook is a freely available reference resource that illustrates and describes various textual features. ArchBook is currently soliciting entries for publication, and has posted some guidelines for those interested in contributing articles.
