Omeka S ORCID Integration

The development of modules for the Omeka-S publishing platform to allow integration with the ORCID system of persistent researcher identifiers. The project would increase the number of humanities scholars in the United States using this system for reliably identifying humanities research publications.

The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media proposes an integration between Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) and Omeka S, a widely-used platform for publishing humanities content online. Omeka S puts special emphasis on the needs of small- to medium-sized institutions and integration with other systems and Linked Open Data (LOD). ORCID provides a global, standardized mechanism for reliably identifying scholars and researchers and for providing metadata about them via unique identifiers. ORCID data, however, is currently overwhelmingly tilted toward researchers in the sciences. This integration will encourage humanists to register an identifier with ORCID, fostering new connections between humanists' research. Thus, Omeka S would both augment ORCID's goal of "enabl[ing] transparent and trustworthy connections between researchers, their contributions, and affiliations" within the humanities, and it would expand the utility of Omeka S for users and data aggregators.

The Development of Digital Documentary Editing Platforms

A workshop for scholarly editors and software developers to discuss how the Omeka and Drupal digital platforms can better serve the needs of documentary editions.

The Center for Digital Editing will host a forum that will bring together editors and technical experts currently engaged with two open-source content management systems -- Omeka and Drupal -- during a two-day workshop to discuss the use, development, and distribution of options for creating and publishing digital documentary editions. Information generated at this workshop will be made available through a website and presented at professional meetings and institutes to promote feedback and discussion.

V-ESPACE: Virtual Early Modern Spectacles and Publics, Active and Collaborative Environment

The early-stage development of a virtual reality environment that re-creates an 18th century theater at the Paris Fair. The environment is intended to provide users with an immersive experience that will allow them to learn about social and political issues, discourse, and status during the time of the Enlightenment.

The V-ESPACE project consists of devising and implementing an interactive and explorable virtual reality video game of an evening at the eighteenth-century Paris Fair theater. Players select avatars with distinct goals to complete, keyed to the play on stage and their social status, as they navigate the virtual theater space alongside other users and non-player characters. Game play accommodates a range of linguistic ability, making this an inclusive learning tool for undergraduates studying French, theater, or early modern history. During this grant period, we will establish (1) the floor plan and architectural features of an historically accurate virtual Fair theater space; (2) the text(s) that will comprise the theatrical entertainment, as well as modalities for digital capture of a live performance; (3) avatar profiles, story lines, and characteristics, integrating historical research with computerized behavioral modeling; and (4) detailed roadmaps for continued research and implementation.
