Native Americans' enduring struggle for justice
Grant details: FT-53647-05
Title: Native Americans' enduring struggle for justice
Author: Paul C. Rosier
Abstract: The history of Native Americans symbolizes the long path of American history – and in the 20th century the nation and the race continued to intersect through world wars, cold wars and cultural wars. Paul C. Rosier traces the way American Indians defined their cultural and spiritual values in the context of U.S. engagements at home and overseas. In his book, “Serving Their Country: American Indian Politics and Patriotism in the Twentieth Century,” recently released by Harvard University Press, Rosier shows how Native Americans' struggles for rights and justice are – like the efforts of African Americans – an integral part of the development of American society. Rosier is an associate professor of history at Villanova University.

“’De pizza habe disappeared!’ Italy, Europe, Europanto"
Grant details: FA-52436-06
Title: “’De pizza habe disappeared!’ Italy, Europe, Europanto"
Author: Nicoletta Pireddu
Abstract: "Wat passe?". What has happened to Italian language and identity in the European scenario of Diego Marani’s fiction? "Aqui in Venezia sumus, keine Paris!"… Really? An Italian newspaper columnist, novelist and translator for the Council of the European Union, Diego Marani invented an artificial language called Europanto in which he has been writing articles and short stories since 1996. More than a mock international language with a provocative aim, Europanto offers the model for a non-hierarchical European subjectivity that erodes national linguistic barriers and also the all-encompassing power of English as Europe’s alleged lingua franca. "Eh? Wat signifique?" "No! No esse so facile!"

Men and Women in Shakespeare
Grant details: HD-51244-11
Title: Men and Women in Shakespeare
Author: Aditi Muralidharan
Abstract: In previous posts, I’ve shown how WordSeer can be used to explore small, well-defined questions: what word did Shakespeare use for ‘beautiful’? Is the occurrence of the word ‘love’ the same in the comedies and tragedies? This post is different. WordSeer has now developed enough to support a simple, but complete, exploratory analysis. The question we’ll think about is this: “How does the portrayal of men and women in Shakespeare’s plays change under different circumstances?” As one answer, we’ll see how WordSeer suggests that when love is a major plot point, the language referring to women changes to become more physical, and the language referring to men becomes more sentimental.

WordSeer: “love” in Shakespeare’s tragedies and comedies
Grant details: HD-51244-11
Title: WordSeer: “love” in Shakespeare’s tragedies and comedies
Author: Aditi Muralidharan
Abstract: When scholars try to make sense out of large collections of text, they frequently do two things: compare, and collect. They collect samples of “interesting” things, and compare them with each other along various relevant dimensions. In this post, I demonstrate the collection and comparison features of WordSeer by using it to compare the usage of the word “love” in Shakespeares comedies and tragedies. You can watch the screencast, or simply read on.

“Beautiful” in Shakespeare
Grant details: HD-51244-11
Title: “Beautiful” in Shakespeare
Author: Aditi Muralidharan
Abstract: A common problem in search and exploration interfaces is the vocabulary problem. This refers to the great variety of words with which different people can use to describe the same concept. For people exploring a text collection, this makes search difficult. There are only a limited number different queries they can think of to describe that concept, but they may be missing many other instances that use different words. This is an important issue for humanities scholars. Often, the very first step of a literature analysis is to comb through text, trying to find thought-provoking examples to study later. In this post, I give an example of how our project WordSeer, a text analysis environment for humanities scholars, can be used to overcome this problem. In this example, I’ll using an instance of WordSeer running on the complete works of Shakespeare from the Internet Shakespeare Editions. It’s live, so you can follow along with this example on the web at wordseer.berkeley.edu/shakespeare.

Stowe’s final missed installment of Uncle Tom’s Cabin in the National Era
Grant details: FB-50005-03
Title: Stowe’s final missed installment of Uncle Tom’s Cabin in the National Era
Author: Barbara Hochman
Abstract: Stowe missed the deadline for the installment of Uncle Tom’s Cabin that was to appear on December 18, 1851. The reason for the missed deadline is unknown.Stowe had failed to meet her deadline twice before; the missed deadline for the December 18 issue was her last such inadvertency. But perhaps missing the deadline for this particular installment was a tactical decision on Stowe’s part, designed for a particular effect upon her readers. Analysis of the episodes that were published immediately before and after the number of the Era that appeared without an installment of the tale suggests that Stowe purposely missed her deadline in order to intensify the effect of the Christmas installment.
