James Joyce's "Ulysses" by the Numbers: Counting Literature in a Digital World

A quantitative analysis of narrative structure, characters, and readership of James Joyce's Ulysses.

The words in James Joyce’s Ulysses have occasioned countless interpretations over the past century, so many, in fact, that one may wonder if there’s really anything left to say. “Ulysses by Numbers” is one attempt to prove that there is, but instead of only reading the words on the page, it also counts them, along with the paragraphs/sentences, characters, first subscribers, and years of composition. My book intervenes forcefully in debates about the value of quantitative methods in the humanities and argues that they should not be restricted only to big-data sets and distant reading practices promising to reveal hidden patterns across massive corpora. To the contrary: these same quantitative methods and tools, which include Geographic Information Systems, social network analysis, text-mining, timelines, and topic modeling, are an incredible opportunity to answer some of the most basic qualitative questions that literary critics have been asking on a smaller scale for centuries.

Rosenbach of the Free Library of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA 19103-6510)
Katherine H. Haas (Project Director: May 2015 to present)

Environmental Monitoring Upgrades for Historic Rosenbach Collections

Upgraded environmental monitoring equipment for the Rosenbach of the Free Library of Philadelphia.  The Rosenbach, which affiliated with the Free Library of Philadelphia in 2013, holds the personal collection of rare book, manuscript, and art dealers Dr. A.S.W. and his brother Philip Rosenbach, who helped to build the holdings at the Folger and Huntington Libraries.  Notable items include the sole surviving copy of Benjamin Franklin’s first Poor Richard’s Almanac; the manuscript of James Joyce’s Ulysses; the papers of modernist poet Marianne Moore; Bram Stoker’s notes for Dracula; rare editions of books by Herman Melville, Charles Dickens, and Lewis Carroll; and art objects including Egyptian sculpture, English furniture, and American portraiture.  The museum hosts many activities for the public, including regular exhibitions, hands-on tours, reading groups, a Bloomsday celebration, and research hours.  The organization has also partnered with local elementary schools, inspiring projects such as studying the Yellow Fever epidemic, learning about poetry through the letters of Langston Hughes, and military base students writing to their own deployed family members after reading Civil War soldiers’ letters to their families.  A 2006 PAG supported the purchase of environmental monitoring equipment, but those data loggers are no longer accurate and cannot be recalibrated.  This equipment would be replaced with new models and a calibrator, based on recommendations from a 2011 risk assessment.

The Rosenbach was founded in the first half of the twentieth century by Dr. A.S.W. Rosenbach and his brother Philip, preeminent dealers in rare books. The brothers' personal collection features treasures that they were unable to part with, including the only surviving copy of Benjamin Franklin's first Poor Richard's Almanac and the manuscript of James Joyce's Ulysses. The Rosenbach is home to a collection of nearly 400,000 rare books, manuscripts, and fine and decorative art objects, including some of the best-known literary and historical objects in the world. The Rosenbach requests funds to improve environmental monitoring equipment, including new data loggers to monitor temperature and humidity, and testing equipment. These tools will help maintain appropriate and stable environmental conditions for the objects in the collection. Monitoring environmental conditions has a direct impact on the long-term preservation of the Rosenbach's collections and the ability to exhibit them safely.

NEH Enduring Questions Course on Differing Conceptions of Art Over Time

The development of a course for third-semester students on differing conceptions of art from prehistoric times through the present day.

The development of a course for third-semester students on differing conceptions of "art" from prehistoric times through the present day. Drawing from selected texts in philosophy and literature, as well as examples in music, film, architecture, performance, and design, the class on the question, What is art? examines whether art is fundamental to the human psyche or vital to the look of the world we live in. In the first of five sections, Origins, students consider the urge to produce art. They view Werner Herzog's film Cave of Forgotten Dreams, which explores the earliest cave paintings though the lens of contemporary desires, and compare early fertility figures with contemporary performance art. This section concludes with essays on critical theory by Martin Heidegger and Theodor Adorno. In the second section, Authenticity, students discuss essays by Walter Benjamin and Jonathon Keats while investigating the stylistic effects and legal ramifications of appropriation in the work of visual artists Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol, and Shepard Fairey. Shakespeare's King Lear is paired with film adaptations by Andrew McCullough, Jean Luc-Goddard, and Akira Kurosawa as encouragement to consider how cultural differences are expressed in the act of dramatization. The third unit, Spirituality and the Transcendent, focuses on the ideas of eighteenth-century aesthetic philosophers Kant, Burke, and Goethe, and the poetry and pictures of William Blake, Francisco Goya, and William Wordsworth. The fourth unit, Mimesis, explores the relationship between real life and representation in readings from Plato, Susan Sontag, and Jacques Lacan and portraits ranging from Roman busts to Leonardo, Picasso, and Arbus. Participants also read Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray and James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. The final unit, Commitment, explores the socio-political dimensions of art with selections from Diderot and Marx, as well as Tolstoy's treatise "What is Art?" and Sartre's "What is Literature?" Examples of political art include the paintings of Jacques Louis David, Russian revolutionary cinema, and two polemical novels, William Morris's News from Nowhere and Emile Zola's The Masterpiece. Arthur Danto's After the End of Art and Hans Belting's Likeness and Presence: A History of the Image Before the Era of Art are used to open up a dialogue on artistic production and intention. The course concludes with an analysis of two films: Exit Through the Gift Shop, a study of the elusive artist Banksy, and Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry, a documentary on the Chinese political dissident and experimental performance artist.

NEH Enduring Questions Course on Conceptions of Time in Physics, Philosophy, Fiction, and Film

The development of an undergraduate seminar on conceptions of time in physics, philosophy, fiction, and film.

The development of an undergraduate seminar on conceptions of time in physics, philosophy, fiction, and film. James Weatherall, assistant professor of philosophy at the University of California, Irvine, develops a course to consider What is time? from the perspectives of physics, philosophy, fiction, and film. As its title suggests, this course approaches the question of time as a humanistic inquiry, surveying traditional Chinese philosophy, Abrahamic theology, Ancient Greek philosophy, Kantian and modern philosophy, historical and current physics, and the modern novel. The goal of the course is twofold: to engage students in multiple perspectives on the human conception of time, and to highlight for them critical tensions between the representation of time in the physical sciences and in literature and the arts. The course is divided into two parts. The first part investigates the physics and metaphysics of time; students read selections from Plato's Timaeus, Aristotle's Physics, Augustine's Confessions, Newton's Scholium on Time and Space, Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, and Einstein's Theory of Relativity. In addition, discussion of early Taoist and Zen Buddhist writings on time are paired with the screening of the film Groundhog Day. The second part of the course explores the depiction of time as a subjective experience in fiction, film, and psychology. Readings include James Joyce's Ulysses; excerpts from Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain; Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse; Thomas Pynchon's The Crying of Lot 49; Vladimir Nabokov's Ada, or Ardor; and Ernst Pöppel's Mindworks. Students write two essays for the course and participate in a weekly online discussion board. The project director interviews students after the first iteration and revises the course based on their feedback.

Diachronic Markup and Presentation Practices for Text Editions in Digital Research Environments

Using three case studies -- the Walt Whitman Archive; an edition of James Joyce's Ulysses; and an edition of J.W. Goethe's Faust -- the proposed project will experiment with methods of advanced TEI markup, create methods for detailed scholarly queries currently unavailable, and develop user interfaces to best display the variants exposed through diachronic markup. The German partner, the University of Frankfurt, is requesting 139,634€ from DFG.

The project is situated in the Digital Humanities area of literary criticism and textual scholarship, in particular the analysis of literary works in diachronic depth, that is: under perspectives of the genesis of their texts. Here, only the digital medium allows substantial future research and education in literary studies. In this context, the project addresses three major desiderata: 1. testing, improving, and making usable diachronic markup, that is the digital representation of document sources (based on TEI), 2. tools to operate on this data under the light of research requirements, and 3. means to publish and visualize the results of these operations. The project promises to develop and publish such tools and to provide best practices for a wide range of use cases. It does so by bringing together three leading projects in digital literary studies, covering different eras of German, US, and British literature: J.W. Goethe, Walt Whitman, and James Joyce.

The Modernist Journals Project: The Crisis, The Egoist, The Little Review, Others

Incorporating four early 20th-century American and British periodicals, "The Crisis," "The Egoist" (including its predecessors, "The Freewoman" and "The New Freewoman"), "The Little Review," and "Others," into a digital archive of modernist journals.

The Modernist Journals Project is proposing to digitize four culturally-significant magazines from the early 20th century: "The Crisis," "The Egoist" (including its predecessors, "The Freewoman" and "The New Freewoman"), "The Little Review," and "Others." The first of these journals is the official organ for the NAACP, edited by W. E. B. Du Bois; the last three are "little magazines" famous for publishing such authors as James Joyce, William Carlos Williams, and Marianne Moore. The digital editions we produce, amounting to 14,560 pages, will be the first for all of these rare journals, which will be made available to the public (without charge) on the MJP website (www.modjourn.org). Public access to these digital editions will also be enhanced by our enabling sophisticated searching of the journals (through OCR text conversion, TEI text encoding, and MODS cataloguing) and by our framing each journal with scholarly materials that will foreground its distinctive value.

Cataloging the Morris Ernst Collection

The arrangement and description and the creation of finding aids for 275 linear feet of the papers of American attorney and civil liberties advocate Morris Leopold Ernst (1888-1976).

The Harry Ransom Center at The University of Texas at Austin requests funds to support a two-year project to arrange, describe, and preserve the papers of Morris Leopold Ernst (1888-1976) in order to provide students, educators, and scholars access to this important but underutilized research material. Dating from 1916 to 1976 and totaling more than 275 linear feet, the Ernst Papers include manuscripts for his books and articles as well as legal research and case files. Extensive correspondence files document Ernst's professional and personal communications with numerous politicians, jurists, artists, and business leaders including presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman; judges Felix Frankfurter and Learned Hand; government officials J. Edgar Hoover and Harold L. Ickes; writers Edna Ferber and James Joyce; journalists Edward R. Murrow and Walter Winchell; and publishers Henry Luce and Arthur Sulzberger.

McFarlin Library Special Collections Preservation Assessment

A preservation assessment of books, manuscripts, periodicals, maps, and posters in the special collections of McFarlin Library. Collection strengths include archival materials on literary authors, such as James Joyce, V.S. Naipaul, Rebecca West, and F. Scott Fitzgerald; historical resources on Oklahoma and Tulsa; and modernist literature of the early 20th century.

With the proposed Preservation Assistance Grant, the McFarlin Library Special Collections Department will contract with Amigos Library Services to contract with a conservator to conduct a general preservation assessment of the Special Collections and Archives of approximately 163,000 items. This assessment will concentrate on three levels of recommendations: 1) short-term remedial improvements to existing storage space, equipment and conditions; 2) recommendations for improvements on conservation and preservation methods, and 3) recommendations for improving access to fragile materials for the university and the community at large. The project proposed here will focus primarily on the book and manuscript portion of the collections, to ensure an effective assessment and to meet the library's priorities for developing long-term collections care plans.

Newspapers at Modernism's Great Divide

This project situates the emergence of early twentieth-century experimental ("modernist") poetry and prose in the context of concurrent changes in British journalism. Early twentieth-century newspapers were a locus of fears about the viability of liberal democracy, the unity of British culture, and the future of literature. Modernist writers necessarily took part in this debate, even as they used journalism as a source of money and reputation. Drawing from the lives and works of T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Rebecca West, and Rose Macaulay, this project roots out the tensions and contradictions inherent in the identity of the "high modernist" writer who must rely on the ephemeral forms of journalism for money and reputation.
