Leonardo da Vinci Between Art and Science: Essays
Grant details: EH-50290-11
Title: Leonardo da Vinci Between Art and Science: Essays
Author: Francesca Fiorani
Author: Anna Kim
Abstract: This collection of essays emerged from the research projects that 24 NEH Scholars developed during the NEH Summer Institute “Leonardo da Vinci: Between Art and Science” (Florence, Italy, June-July 2012), hosted bythe Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz (KHI). Over a period of three weeks, NEH Scholars explored the relations between art and science in the works of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), the versatile, canonical artist of western art who moved with equal ease among artistic, literary, intellectual and scientific circles. The Institute was organized around three major themes: ¦ Word and Image ¦ Painting and Drawing ¦ Craftsmen and Scholars Selected to address cogent issues in the study of Leonardo's works and writings, these three themes are more generally significant to understand the relations between art and science in the early modern period. Within these three themes, NEH Scholars developed their individual research projects and the essays gathered here are the first outcomes of those projects. The essays vary greatly in themes and approaches, reflecting the diverse background, training and interests of their authors. They all provide unique points of entry into the many aspects of Leonardo da Vinci’s works and writings and suggest possible use of new materials for undergraduate teaching and scholarly research. This website includes also additional bibliographical resources and the program of the NEH Institute.

The Spenser Archive: Prototype

Title: The Spenser Archive: Prototype
Author: Joseph Loewenstein
Author: David Lee Miller
Author: Patrick Cheney
Author: Stephen Pentecost
Author: Douglas Knox
Abstract: The Spenser Project Digital Archive is the online companion to the Collected Works of Edmund Spenser, forthcoming from Oxford University Press. At present, readers have access here to full-text versions of the books in which Spenser’s work appeared between 1569 and 1590: A Theatre for Voluptuous Worldlings, The Shepheardes Calender, the Spenser-Harvey Letters, and The First Part of The Faerie Queene (books I-III), as well as facsimiles of those books. We also provide scans of all pages containing variant states, an analysis of various forme-states within editions of these texts, and, in the case of The Shepheardes Calender, a grid of variants across the early editions through 1611. Behind the scenes, we are constructing an even richer archive, which will supplement the forthcoming Oxford Edition of the Collected Works of Edmund Spenser—and so increase the usefulness of that edition. Transcriptions of all of Spenser’s works will soon be made publicly available, and edited versions of those texts will follow shortly. Glossaries, commentary, textual and critical introductions, will be available here as soon as they are completed and approved for public release by OUP.

Database of Cultural Presentations
Grant details: FA-55637-11
Title: Database of Cultural Presentations
Author: Danielle Fosler-Lussier
Author: Eric Fosler-Lussier
Abstract: The data presented here represents partial information about the U.S. State Department's Cultural Presentations Program from 1954-1980. These data were collected during the research for Music In America's Cold War Diplomacy. The two major archival repositories represented in this database are these: • National Archives at College Park, Maryland. Records are principally located in Record Group 59 (General Records of the Department of State). • ARK: University of Arkansas Libraries, Department of Special Collections, Fayetteville, Arkansas. MC468, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs Historical Collection. This database represents a first attempt to organize the extant data about the State Department’s Cultural Presentations program, which began in 1954. The database is far from complete for the following reasons: * The U.S. government keeps only a tiny fraction (about 5%) of the records it generates. Most of the extant archival records of cultural presentations tours are incomplete; some tours are not documented at all in existing State Department records. There are fewer records for tours in the early-to-mid 1960s than for tours in the 1950s. * I have not had the resources to survey all the extant records. My primary focus was on the time period between 1954 and the early 1970s; later tours are poorly represented in the data collected here. * Performers’ itineraries were subject to change. Local circumstances often forced significant alterations to the plan for each tour. Revised itineraries may not have been generated or preserved. * Many documents about cultural diplomacy have not yet been collected from personal collections and the archives of groups that traveled. The database should therefore be used as a starting point only. Nonetheless, it offers scholars and other interested persons a way to find out who went where on State Department-funded musical tours.

Berry Slave Value Database [show prizes]
Grant details: FA-57651-14
Title: Berry Slave Value Database
Author: Daina Ramey Berry
Abstract: This study uses historical records from 36 archives in the United States to analyze 8,437 enslaved people’s sale and/or appraisal prices from 1797 to 1865. Demographic information, including name, year, age/age group, gender, state, and trade/skill notations were recorded when applicable. By calculating average appraisal and sale values across cross-sections of gender (male or female) and age group (0-10 years old, 11-22 years old, 23-39 years old, and 40+ years old), a total of sixteen major comparative prices were analyzed (app/male/0-10; app/female/0-10; sale/male/0-10; sale/female/0-10; app/male/11-22; app/female/11-22; sale/male/11-22; sale/female/11-22; app/male/23-39; app/female/23-39; sale/male/23-39; sale/female/23-39; app/male/40+; app/female/40+; sale/male/40+; sale/female/40+). Scholars have the opportunity to use this data set to understand how enslaved people were valued and appraised. The demographic data included will be useful to those who want to explore various aspects of the history of slavery and enslaved people.

Abstract: Over the winter of 1833–34, the Numak'aki (Mandan) war chief Mató-Tópe (ca. 1784–1837) visited the painting studio kept by Swiss painter Karl Bodmer (1809–93) at Fort Clark, a trading post in what is now North Dakota, fifty-five times. This project argues that this shared studio space and its activities are an extension of the Middle Ground, or the cultural arena co-created by Native and non-Native peoples on the French frontier. The Numak'aki name that local warriors bestowed upon Bodmer (Kapúska, or “Forcefully Makes Marks”) demonstrates this co-creation by describing the artist’s practices through a Numak'aki lens, rather than a Western one—a testimony to the co-operation of two distinct cultural systems within the Fort Clark studio. The project’s digital platform then models this argument in presenting the project’s related archives through both Native and non-Native frameworks.

Zapotec Conversations Archive
Grant details: FN-50065-10
Title: Zapotec Conversations Archive
Author: Mark A. Sicoli
Abstract: This archive is the result of the Documenting Endangered Languages Project "Lachixío Zapotec Conversations: Audio-Visual Archive and Transcription Collection (zpl)" [Oaxaca, Mexico] funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities FN-50065-10. The NEH funding provided for Mark Sicoli to produce transcriptions of a 40 hour video corpus, enrich and code segments of the data for conversation analysis of basic social actions, and translate the transcribed Zapotec to Spanish and portions of the corpus to English. Lachixío (including the close dialects of San Vicente, and San Miguel and San Mateo Mixtepec) is the last language of the West Zapotec clade in which speakers are competent conversationalists. This corpus was produced at a time when the historical trajectory was one of language shift to Spanish monolingualism throughout the region and in which the opportunities to document the language in its natural conversational ecology had grown few. The videos were recorded during the summers of 2008 and 2009 under funding from the Max Planck Society when Sicoli was a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. The corpus of transcribed videos provides resources that represent the language in everyday cultural settings, such as families receiving visitors, working together on daily chores, eating meals, joking, teasing, socializing children, sharing stories and more. The materials can both be considered a linguistic "text" collection as well as a representation of Zapotec culture in the Lachixío region of the Sierra Sur of Oaxaca, Mexico through conversational (multimodal) social interaction.

The Speech of Children from Cusco and Chuquisaca
Grant details: FN-50091-11
Title: The Speech of Children from Cusco and Chuquisaca
Author: Susan Kalt
Abstract: Our main goal in creating this collection is to document children’s comprehension and production of Quechua (quz, quh) in rural highland Bolivia and Peru, where a continuum of permeation from Spanish can be observed. The secondary goal is to document variation within Cuzco-Collao Quechua, giving special attention to the variety of Quechua spoken in rural Chuquisaca in South Bolivia. An understanding of rural Bolivian variants is essential for producing school materials for South Bolivian children and for preserving an understanding of their cultural heritage. Among the scant documentation of the variety spoken in Chuquisaca is a sizeable vocabulary to be included in a dictionary of Bolivian Quechua in preparation by Dr. Pedro Plaza Martínez, and a pedagogical grammar by Louise Stark, Manuel Segovia Bayo and Felicia Segovia Polo (1971). Variation in Cuzco-Collao affix order and interpretation is also detailed by Simon Van de Kerke in his doctoral dissertation (1996) including a morphosyntactic study of the Quechua spoken in the town of Tarata, in close proximity to the highly relexified Cochabamba dialect. Our goal is to study rural and less relexified varieties. According to a Peruvian Census (2007:2.4.1) declaration of Quechua as the language learned in childhood declined 3.3 percent between 1993-2007. Anecdotal evidence indicates a similar trend in Bolivia. Clearly, the rapid loss of a major indigenous language spoken in childhood represents a threat to the vitality of indigenous cultural transmission in the region as well as a major setback for humankind’s understanding of child first and second anguage acquisition, bilingualism and language contact. Despite the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of speakers of Cuzco-Collao Quechua, only a handful of published studies of Andean children’s grammar focus on their L1 grammar, and virtually all of these focus on Peruvian children, leaving a serious gap in documentation of indigenous children’s language.

Serai: Premodern Encounters
Grant details: FS-50229-09
Title: Serai: Premodern Encounters
Author: E. Natalie Rothman
Author: Karen Nelson
Author: Julia Schleck
Author: Geoff Piersol
Abstract: Serai is a collaborative project, bringing together a development team at the University of Toronto with collaborators at the universities of Nebraska Lincoln, Maryland, and elsewhere. It originated in two distinct initiatives: ePorte, a collaboratory for Premodern Mediterranean Studies, began at the University of Toronto in 2009. It involved from its inception several doctoral students in the Department of History (specialists in cross-confessional interactions in medieval and early modern Iberia, the Italian Peninsula, and the Ottoman Empire), information technologists, digital librarians, and work-study undergraduate students in History and Computer Science, and was coordinated by Prof. Natalie Rothman. Serai/Early Modern Exchange, a site dedicated to early modern European encounters with Islamicate societies, emerged out of a NEH seminar at the University of Maryland in 2010. The original NEH seminar, “Remapping the Renaissance: Exchange between Early Modern Islam and Europe,” was conceived by Judith Tucker (History, Georgetown University), Adele Seeff (Renaissance Studies, University of Maryland), and Karen Nelson (English, University of Maryland). Participants included scholars from History, Religious Studies, Art History, and Languages and Literatures. One of these, Julia Schleck, forged connections with Jyotsna Singh and developed an affiliated program, Serai.
Year: 2011
Primary URL: http://serai.utsc.utoronto.ca/
Primary URL Description: Serai is a free and open online collaboratory for scholarship on premodern encounters across ethnolinguistic and religious divides. Our site is a digital meeting place where scholars can share resources, exchange ideas, and collaborate on projects. It is in an explicitly trans-disciplinary space for researchers, teachers, and students at all stages of their careers. We combine regional expertise with a keen interest in the transformative potential of digital scholarship. We hope to inspire others to join us in thinking through our diverse research materials about the multiple intersections between the past and the future of cultural encounters, knowledge production, and boundary crossing, and the urgency of exploring connectivities and confluences across seemingly disparate spaces.

Digital Prosopographies
Grant details: FT-62068-14
Title: Digital Prosopographies
Author: Aaron Moreno
Abstract: Thanks to the funding of the NEH, I am in the process of creating an open-access website which provides a portal for scholars of pre-modern collective communal histories to publish their raw prosopographical data, whether in the form of population databases or family trees. Such an endeavor will allow other researchers to not only better engage the monographs or journal articles relying on the corresponding information but also observe additional historical trends beyond original investigator’s purview. Furthermore, such data could be used as an educational tool for students whose linguistic limitations or lack of documentary access had previously prevented them from conducting cultural analyses on historical populations.

Title: The Modern Art Iraq Archive
Author: Nada Shabout
Abstract: The Modern Art Iraq Archive (MAIA) project works to document Iraq’s rich but threatened modern artistic heritage. This project prototypes a participatory content-management system to trace, share and enable community enrichment around this art. MAIA houses images of works of art, many of them now lost, from the Iraqi Museum of Modern Art in Baghdad, as well as publications, exhibition catalogs, and personal documentation. MAIA's goals are to raise awareness of the diverse body of modern works of Iraqi art, to help locate their current whereabouts, and to assist agencies working to prevent their illegal movement and sale. MAIA aims to reach a wide and participatory audience across the globe, and offers users the ability to document, discuss, explore, and enrich Iraqi artistic expressions and experiences. Central to its development were ease of use, translation into Arabic, extensive and inclusive documentation, community contribution, and syndication of content elsewhere on the Web.

Page-Level Genre Metadata for English-Language Volumes in HathiTrust, 1700-1922
Grant details: HD-51787-13
Title: Page-Level Genre Metadata for English-Language Volumes in HathiTrust, 1700-1922
Author: Underwood, Ted
Abstract: Page-by-page genre predictions for 854,476 English-language volumes printed between 1700 and 1922, keyed to the texts in HathiTrust Digital Library. This research was supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Council of Learned Societies. The genre predictions were produced by an ensemble of regularized logistic classifiers, and are intended to support research that explores broad trends in literary history. Since volumes usually contain multiple genres, page-level metadata is necessary to create machine-readable collections in a particular genre.

Ancient Egyptian Architecture Online - Illustrated Standardized Terminology

Author: Willeke Wendrich
Author: Ulrike Fauerbach
Author: Martin Saelhof
Author: Stefan Seidlmayer
Author: Claudia Horning

Author: Elizabeth McAulay
Author: Kristian Allen
Abstract: Terminology can be more confusing than enlightening, if it is unclear how a term is used. In Egyptology this is certainly the case, because Egyptian architectural terminology is different from that used in other historical architectural regions, such as in Classical architecture. Making use and expanding upon the architectural drawings and photographs of the AEGARON project, AEGARON-IST provides a well-thought out and vetted architectural terminology in three languages (English, German and Arabic). Each term is illustrated by actual examples, rather than idealized construction drawings. The database links to the Getty Thesaurus of Art and Architecture and has a built in hierarchical organization and definition of relationships.

Abstract: The Asian Stoneware Jars project, authored by Peter Grave of the University of New England (Australia), is a data publication in Open Context that provides data on the likely provenance and production dynamics of large stone jars, many found in dozens of shipwrecks in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Using a variety of analytical techniques to detect trace elements, Graves and his team identified that the stoneware vessels originated in at least seventeen discrete production zones ranging from southern China to Burma, providing insights on the transport of goods around the globe during the 14th- 17th centuries.

The Atlas presents in maps and text complete data about the creation and all subsequent changes (dated to the day) in the size, shape, and location of every county in the fifty United States and the District of Columbia. It also includes non-county areas, unsuccessful authorizations for new counties, changes in county names and organization, and the temporary attachments of non-county areas and unorganized counties to fully functioning counties. The principal sources for these data are the most authoritative available: the session laws of the colonies, territories, and states that created and changed the counties.

Title: Niels Fock & Eva Krener Collection from a Cañari Village, Juncal, Cañar, Ecuador
Author: Eva Krener
Author: Niels Fock
Abstract: The photographs in this collection are the result of research on adaptation to the physical and political environment of the indigenous Cañarí of Juncal, Ecuador, as well as their concept of the world. Anthropologists Niels Fock and Eva Krener did this research from September 1973 to August 1974, and from August 1977 to January 1978. Their work was made possible with the financial support of the Government Council of Humanist Studies and the University of Copenhagen. A representative sample of the material culture of the indigenous Cañarís, such as traditional costumes and utility items, has been deposited with the Ethnographic Collection of the National Museum of Denmark. In 1954 Niels Fock conducted an anthropological study on the indigenous Waiwai in British Guiana and in 1958 and 1961 on the indigenous Mataco in Argentina.

Grant details: PW-253694-17
Title: Survey of Small Historical Societies, Libraries and Museums for Hispanic Materials and Their Management
Author: Recovering the US Hispanic Literary Heritage/Arte Publico Press-University of Houston
Abstract: Some 358 surveys were distributed (on excel list linked). Of these, 59 were completed and returned (See Excel list). This effort was followed up with phone and email contacts to 36 institutions. Of the final list of 36 organizations reporting fully, we invited 18 (See Excel list) to come to Houston for a full-day conference; of these 8 attended and participated in the conference (See Excel list). The final “Guide” that we published online and are promoting includes the full report of holdings of the institutions, the types of institutions and their needs; in these, there was a considerable amount of Hispanic archival materials identified, so as to justify the need for this project.

Sounding Spirit Digital Library

Title: Sounding Spirit Digital Library
Author: Jesse P. Karlsberg
Author: Meredith Doster
Author: Erin Fulton
Author: Sara Palmer
Author: Rachel Erin Stuart
Author: Jay Varner
Abstract: This Sounding Spirit pilot digital library features songbooks and hymnals published across the southern United States from 1850 to 1925. Spanning holdings from four partner archives, the digital library’s twenty-two books include words-only hymnals, gospel songbooks, spiritual collections, and shape-note tunebooks, demonstrating the wide variety of form, content, and presentation in southern vernacular sacred songbooks. These songbooks employ competing notation systems and vary in musical style from dispersed harmony fuging tunes and plain tunes of the shape-note repertoire, to antiphonal gospel, to classically inspired arrangements of African American spirituals, to words-only hymns in Muskokee sung in unison, to tunes in oral tradition shared among southern black and white congregations. Organized into collections that highlight texts’ associated places, populations, genres, and denominational affiliations, the digital library allows for rich engagement with songbooks and hymnals seminal in their respective eras, but historically underrepresented in both archival holdings and scholarship. These works and collections illustrate the primacy of songbooks to the dynamic encounters among white, black, and native communities navigating modernizing forces across the US South and beyond. In selecting volumes for the pilot site, Sounding Spirit’s music bibliographer Erin Fulton, project director, Jesse P. Karlsberg, and project manager, Meredith Doster, collaborated with content consultants at each partner archive to balance the diversity of this 22-volume corpus with each collection’s strengths. Additional criteria guiding the selection included contemporaneous significance, influence, rarity, and existence of digitized copies or available facsimiles.

Islamic Manuscripts [show prizes]
Grant details: PW-50086-08
Title: Islamic Manuscripts
Author: Will Noel
Abstract: The Walters’ collection of Islamic Manuscripts showcases masterpieces of illuminated and illustrated manuscripts. The sacred, devotional and non-religious manuscripts presented here were created across the breadth of the Islamic world and date from the 9th through the 19th century. In the Islamic book, the primary vehicle for literary and artistic expression, the powers of poetry, prayer and visual form collide. They bear witness to remarkable achievements in literature and the book arts. Examples include a 15th-century Koran from northern India, executed at the height of the Timurid empire; a luxurious 16th-century copy of the Khamsa by Amir Khusraw, illustrated by a number of famous artists for the emperor Akbar; and a Turkish calligraphy album by Sheik Handullah al Amasi, one of the greatest calligraphers. All images of Islamic manuscripts were created and are provided through a Preservation and Access grant awarded to The Walters Art Museum by the National Endowment for the Humanities, 2008-2010.

The Syriac Gazetteer
Grant details: PW-51161-12
Title: The Syriac Gazetteer
Author: David A. Michelson
Author: Thomas A. Carlson
Abstract: The Syriac Gazetteer is a geographical reference work of Syriaca.org for places relevant to Syriac studies. “Places relevant to Syriac Studies” include places named in Syriac texts (such as ?arqel — ????), places interesting to historians who work on Syriac texts (such as Dura-Europos), and places where scholarship on Syriac is being produced (such as Japan). There are no temporal or spatial boundaries for the geographic database, which collects places relevant to any period of history useful for Syriac studies, from places mentioned in the Peshitta version of Genesis to places founded recently, and from ancient Edessa to Mongol-era outposts in China and diaspora communities in the United States of America. At least in theory, any type or size of place could be represented in the geographic database, from large empires to single churches or a particular named city gate. Maps are provided for places whose location is known, but the database includes places which are not located or even locatable: each place is a conceptual thing with a mental existence related to, but not reducible to, its physical manifestation. Mythological and other ahistorical places are also included in the database.

Bibliotheca Hagiographica Syriaca Electronica (New Handbook of Syriac Literature, Volume I)

Title: Bibliotheca Hagiographica Syriaca Electronica (New Handbook of Syriac Literature, Volume I)
Author: Jeanne-Nicole Mellon Saint-Laurent
Author: David. A. Michelson
Author: Ugo Zanetti
Author: Claude Detienne
Abstract: Bibliotheca Hagiographica Syriaca Electronica (BHSE) is a guide to 1,837 Syriac stories, hymns, and homilies on Christian saints. These texts blossomed alongside the cult of the saints in late antiquity and the Middle Ages. While traditions in Greek and Latin are well known to scholars, the stories of the saints of the Middle East are only just being discovered. The BHSE makes Syriac hagiography available to scholars and the wider public, with information about these texts including: authors, opening and closing lines, manuscripts, translations, and bibliography. The BHSE is the result of a partnership between Syriaca.org and the Jesuit scholarly society, La société des Bollandistes. The BHSE combines digital scholarship with the methods for the study of hagiography developed by the Bollandists since 1643.

Title: A Guide to Syriac Authors (Syriac Biographical Dictionary, Volume II)
Author: David. A. Michelson
Author: Nathan P. Gibson
Abstract: A Guide to Syriac Authors is a scholarly manual with entries on nearly 1,000 authors who wrote in Syriac or otherwise had an influence on Syriac literature.

Grant details: PW-51305-13
Title: Harry Adams Photographs
Author: Tom & Ethel Bradley Center
Abstract: Harry Adams, also known as “One Shot Harry,” was one of the best-known members of the Los Angeles African American community. Having access to the city’s inner circle, he became known for his images of politicians, entertainers, and society figures. Adams worked as a freelancer for the California Eagle and Los Angeles Sentinel for 35 years and had a number of churches and lawyers as clients. His collection is particularly rich in its documentation of African American social life including images of social organizations, churches, schools, civil rights organizations, protests and cultural events. Born in Arkansas in 1918, Adams became interested in photography when he was 12 years old. His photographic career began after he completed a tour of duty in World War II and graduated from the California School of Photography and Graphic Design (operated by Los Angeles photographer Charles Williams). The collection of images for the period 1950–1985 is rich in its depiction of the unique lives of African Americans in and around the Los Angeles area. There are many images of important black political leaders, such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rev. Ralph Abernathy, Malcolm X, and many others. Also included are images of Coretta Scott King, Rev. Maurice Dawkins; Mayor Tom Bradley; Jackie Robinson; Rev. H. H. Brookins, Congresswoman and County Supervisor Yvonne Brathwaite-Burke (the first African American woman to represent the West Coast in Congress); Leon and Ruth Washington (founders of the Los Angeles Sentinel); Jessie Jackson; Julian Bond; Cassius Clay; Dr. H. Claude Hudson (founder of the NAACP); civil rights attorney and California Superior Court Justice Loren Miller; and many musicians and entertainers.

Guy Crowder Photographs
Grant details: PW-51305-13
Title: Guy Crowder Photographs
Author: Tom & Ethel Bradley Center
Abstract: Guy Crowder chronicled political, social and athletic events in Los Angeles for over 25 years. After graduating from high school in Compton, he enlisted in the Marine Corps Reserve, serving from 1957-1963. It was during his military years that he developed his interest in photography from a hobby to a career. His professional career began in 1960 as a staff photographer for Your Community Studio in Los Angeles. He took classes at Harbor College and L. A. Trade Technical College. Crowder worked as a freelance photographer for the Los Angeles Sentinel, LA Metropolitan Gazette, Los Angeles Times, Ebony and Jet Magazines, Herald Examiner, Southwest Wave, Tempo News,and the West Coast News. This gave him the privilege of a close proximity to the heartbeat of his community. In 1974, Los Angeles Supervisor Kenneth Hahn asked Crowder to work for him, making Crowder the first African American to be employed by the Board of Supervisors. Crowder maintained his own studio and employed as many as three photographers in his shop. Crowder, or one of his photographers routinely worked seven days a week on assignments. The Guy Crowder collection consists of photographs of black politicians, athletes, and celebrities and includes images of nearly every African American of any importance who passed through Los Angeles and Las Vegas during his career. Highlights include coverage of the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA) shootout, the police attack on the Black Panthers, the 1965 Watts riots, Mayor Tom Bradley’s campaigns and swearing-in ceremonies, ongoing coverage of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson, the NAACP, and 100 Black Men, Brotherhood Crusade, the Los Angeles Urban League, Julian Bond, Johnnie Cochran, Jamaal Wilkes, Magic Johnson, Sammy Davis, Jr., Dr. King's funeral, the Grammys, the NAACP Image Awards, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Walter Mondale, John Wooden, Governor Jerry Brown, and Jimmy Carter’s 1976 presidential campaign.

Charles Williams Photographs
Grant details: PW-51305-13
Title: Charles Williams Photographs
Author: Tom & Ethel Bradley Center
Abstract: Charles Williams photographed for theCalifornia Eagle and the Los Angeles Sentinel as a freelance photographer. The earliest images in his collection are from the mid-1940s. His career was interrupted when Williams chose to relocate with his Japanese wife Yoshi Kuwahara and their daughter to Chicago rather than have them sent to a relocation camp. Upon his return to Los Angeles, he began his wide ranging coverage of the African American community covering the Civil Rights Movement, churches, politics, social activities, and celebrities. Williams also established The California School of Photography and gave many aspiring photographers their start. He continued working as a photographer himself and became the official photographer for Los Angeles City Councilman Gordon Hahn, eventually becoming Hahn's field deputy. As a result, Williams' coverage of the Counsel and other city activities is especially rich. His association with Hahn also provided him access to many political activities including coverage of Richard Nixon's campaign for governor in Los Angeles.

"Show 'Em Whatcha Got" Mass. Memories Road Show: The Hip-Hop Edition collection
Grant details: PY-258672-18
Title: "Show 'Em Whatcha Got" Mass. Memories Road Show: The Hip-Hop Edition collection
Author: University Archives & Special Collections, Joseph P. Healey Library
Abstract: The collection of 338 items is a series in the Mass. Memories Road Show (MMRS) collection. MMRS is a statewide, event-based participatory archiving program that documents people, places, and events in Massachusetts history through family photographs and stories. Archivists and public historians at the Joseph P. Healey Library at UMass Boston collaborate with local planning teams and volunteers to organize free public events where individuals bring photographs to be copied and included in a digital archive. Contributors are invited to describe the photographs in their own words. In addition, they may choose to share “the story behind the photos” on video, have their own “keepsake photo” taken, receive advice from professional archivists and historians on caring for their family photos, and learn from one another about the history of their community. The "Show 'Em Whatcha Got" Mass. Memories Road Show: The Hip-Hop Edition collection includes nearly 300 images features informal snapshots and promotional publicity photographs documenting the experiences of artists and producers involved in the four elements of hip-hop–rap, DJs, dance, and graffiti–in the Boston community from the 1980s to the present. Forty-two video interviews with members of Boston's hip-hop community are also featured in the collection.

The Anne Finch Digital Archives
Grant details: RA-50043-06
Title: The Anne Finch Digital Archives
Author: Jennifer Keith
Author: Claudia Kairoff
Abstract: The multimedia elements of this site reflect the range of ways that Finch’s work engaged her contemporary readers and listeners, who knew her work in manuscript, print, or performance, or in all of these forms. Annotations to the featured poems provide analysis and contexts that expose Finch’s engagement with her cultural, political and social contexts. Writing in an era known for the overtly public and political poetry of Dryden, Swift, and Pope, Anne Finch, Countess of Winchilsea (1661-1720), articulated a different literary and political authority. From her position as a female aristocrat, once at the center of the court and then for many years a political internal exile, Finch explored the individual’s spiritual condition as inextricable from social and political phenomena.

Author: Taylor, C. James, editor in chief
Author: Martin, Sara
Author: Woodward, Hobson
Author: Sikes, Sara
Author: Lint, Gregg
Author: Georgini, Sara
Author: Norton, Amanda
Abstract: The newest volume to be added the the Adams Papers Digital Editions, Adams Family Correspondence, volume 10, published in letterpress in 2011 by the Belknap Press, Harvard University Press, Cambridge, MA. The volume covers the period from January 1794 through June 1795, offers over 300 letters from the irrepressible Adamses, including many between John and Abigail never before printed. As always, the Adams family serve as important observers of and commentators on national and international events, from America’s growing tensions with Britain and France, to its internal struggles with increasingly virulent political factionalism and the Whiskey Rebellion. The most significant event of the period for the Adamses themselves was John Quincy’s appointment as U.S. minister resident at The Hague, the beginning of his long and storied diplomatic career. Accompanying him overseas was his brother Thomas Boylston, the only Adams child who had not yet seen Europe.

Correspondence of James K. Polk: Transcriptions, April 1848–June 1849
Grant details: RQ-249881-16
Title: Correspondence of James K. Polk: Transcriptions, April 1848–June 1849
Author: Michael David Cohen, Editor
Author: Bradley J. Nichols, Editorial Assistant
Abstract: Work continues on Volume 14 of the Correspondence of James K. Polk, which will complete the series. In the meantime, as we prepare that volume’s annotation and letter summaries, we see no reason not to share the transcriptions. Here you can read 104 letters that Polk wrote and 260 that he received between April 1, 1848, and his death on June 15, 1849. They contain few notes, chiefly describing the texts, identifying enclosures, and citing other Polk letters referenced. But they are accurate, carefully proofread reproductions of the primary documents. The letters on this site help to illuminate the aftermath of the Mexican War, including Polk’s unsuccessful effort to establish territorial governments for the lands acquired from Mexico; the election of Polk’s successor, in which Whig and Mexican War general Zachary Taylor defeated Democrat and Polk friend Lewis Cass; and renewed concern over Polk’s having misled senators in 1845 about his intentions regarding Texas annexation. They discuss the heated debate over slavery in the United States, the spreading revolutionary activity in Europe, and American interest in purchasing Cuba. Correspondents include California gold seekers, India’s poet laureate, and the wives of John Quincy Adams and Robert E. Lee. Polk exchanged personal letters with friends and relatives including three of his siblings; his nephew and ward; and his wife, Sarah Childress Polk. Letters from the last months of his presidency and from his brief retirement address the final illness and the anticipated legacy of one of the most consequential presidents in U.S. history.

Digital Transcripts of Saul Kripke's Princeton Seminars on the Theory of Truth (1987-1989)
Grant details: RQ-255700-17
Title: Digital Transcripts of Saul Kripke's Princeton Seminars on the Theory of Truth (1987-1989)
Author: Saul Kripke
Abstract: One of Kripke’s most significant contributions to philosophy can be found in his treatment of the concept of truth in his article “Outline of a Theory of Truth.” In his “Outline,” Kripke gave a new and revolutionary solution to the Liar paradox and related paradoxes that preserves the intuitive notion of truth to a great extent. But Kripke’s “Outline” is just that: an outline. It omits many of the details of Kripke’s philosophical views, as well as much of the specific mathematical machinery needed for fleshing them out. Fortunately, Kripke addressed the gaps and covered a great deal of new ground in four seminars given at Princeton University in the Spring semester of 1987, the Spring semester of 1988, the Fall semester of 1988, and the Spring semester of 1989. These seminars comprise a total of forty-two classes completely devoted to the theory of truth. It should be noted that in these seminars, delivered more than ten years after the publication of the “Outline”, Kripke goes beyond completing the agenda he had set up in the ‘70s. He addresses objections directed at his own theory, introduces modifications, and discusses rival theories that appeared after the publication of the “Outline”. For instance, in response to objections that the truth-teller sentence (‘This very sentence is true’) ought to be regarded as false since there is no reason to think it true, Kripke shows how this could be accommodated in his theory. The Digital Transcripts of Saul Kripke's Princeton Seminars on the Theory of Truth (1987-1989) include all the original typewritten manuscripts. Unfortunately, because the manuscripts contain a wealth of formal symbolism, it was impossible to use a program for automatically converting the manuscripts to digital form and the process had to be done manually. The completely retyped digital version incorporates handwritten comments in the margins, additional proofs, and has been checked against the audio of the seminars.

The Complete Letters of Willa Cather
Grant details: RQ-260744-18
Title: The Complete Letters of Willa Cather
Author: Willa Cather
Abstract: The Complete Letters of Willa Cather is an endeavor to publish, for the first time, the collected correspondence of one of the most significant and widely-read American novelists of the twentieth century. The author of My Àntonia, A Lost Lady, The Professor's House, Death Comes for the Archbishop, and many other celebrated books, Willa Cather was a woman with a compelling personal story, remarkable professional accomplishments, and a courageously independent life; her personal writings are of deep interest to many. The letters, long withheld from publication and even from quotation due to restrictions in Cather's will, provide unparalleled insight into the life, creative imagination, and professional and social context of this extraordinary woman. The project is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities and by the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and with the cooperation of Willa Cather Foundation in Red Cloud, Nebraska.

The Digital Aelfric [show prizes]
Grant details: RQ-50239-06
Title: The Digital Aelfric
Author: Aaron J. Kleist, Editor
Abstract: This publication offers a dynamic edition of works by Ælfric of Eynsham, the most erudite and prolific author writing in English before Chaucer. Focusing on arguably his most influential work, the Catholic Homilies, it examines the only homilies for which witnesses to all six stages of authorial revision survive, tracing their development through Ælfric’s lifetime and nearly 200 years of transmission thereafter. Where printed editions are hard put to capture such a fluid developmental process, the Digital Ælfric allows one visually to trace each step along the way. Annotated transcripts by 43 contributors of all 118 extant copies may be viewed alongside each other or compared directly with digital images of all relevant manuscript pages. Accompanied by scholarly introductions to the project and to Ælfric’s life and work, the Digital Ælfric seeks to open new avenues for scholarly exploration and to promote a heightened appreciation for this vital figure in English literature.

Digital Recension of the Eastern Han Chinese Grammaticon.
Grant details: RQ-50525-10
Title: Digital Recension of the Eastern Han Chinese Grammaticon.
Author: Cook, Richard S.
Abstract: Comprehensive electronic data underlying the "Eastern Han Chinese Dictionary Translation Project" (NEH RQ-50525-10), and arising from Cook's (2003) PhD dissertation, was published for the first time in February, 2011, as part of the bilingual (Chinese-English) Wenlin 4.0 software package. This data, the result of 17 years of work, includes the full reconstructed Shuowen Urtext in three parallel Chinese versions (Seal Script, Traditional, Modern), together with a wide variety of key contextual data needed for collation, proofing, interpretation and translation of the base text (including Chinese and English lexicographic data, and historical phonological and semantic data). The data is presented along with the large specialized fonts created for this project, including complete Unicode 6.0 CJK font support (CDL), linguistic transcription support, and Cook's Duan Yucai Seal font. Wenlin Institute's cutting-edge software serves as the primary platform for the Shuowen translation project, and is also the primary means of publishing project results; the ingenious user-interface streamlines access to the ancient text, and has been customized for enhanced cross-platform digital publication of the Shuowen translation project findings; Wenlin 4.0 runs on current Apple and Windows operating systems (see Wenlin 4.0, Bishop et al., 2011).

Title: Unabridged Hanyu Da Cidian Index — Wénlín Electronic Edition
Author: et al.
Author: Richard Cook
Author: Thomas Bishop
Author: Victor Mair
Abstract: Unabridged Hànyu Dà Cídian Index — Wénlín Electronic Edition. Integrated with the ABC English-Chinese/Chinese-English Dictionary. Corrected, expanded, compiled and published by Wenlin Institute, Inc. SPC. Based on the ABC Chinese Dictionary Series print edition: An Alphabetical Index to the Hanyu Da Cidian by Victor H. Mair. The Wenlin ABC HDC software edition merges Wenlin’s electronic version of the Unabridged HDC Index together with the electronic ABC Chinese-English Dictionary, so that their combined information (568,000 entries) is available in a friendly, intuitive and powerful interface. Ideal for students and specialists investigating Chinese literature. The Hanyu Da Cidian (Unabridged Dictionary of Sinitic) (HDC) is the first large-scale comprehensive word dictionary in Chinese history to include both ancient and modern language. HDC is an excellent reference, but it is difficult to find items in it because they are arranged by radicals and residual strokes — hence the need for an alphabetical index of words. The Wenlin ABC HDC software edition provides easy access to the more than 350,000 multisyllabic entries found in HDC. (An alphabetical index of monosyllabic entries is already available.) It uses Hanyu Pinyin to provide phonetic annotation for the character entries, which enables the user to locate them alphabetically. More information here: http://wenlin.com/products/hdcindex.

Electronic editions of Blake's Small Book of Designs copy A and Large Book of Designs copy A

Title: Electronic editions of Blake's Small Book of Designs copy A and Large Book of Designs copy A
Author: William Blake
Abstract: The William Blake Archive is pleased to announce the publication of electronic editions of Blake's Small Book of Designs copy A and Large Book of Designs copy A; the republication of Blake's large color printed drawings of 1795, with five additional impressions and all of them now searchable; and the addition to the Blake Collection Lists of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts—31 contributing institutions altogether. The Archive now also features newly revised textual transcriptions for Blake's descriptions of his illustrations to Milton's "L'Allegro" and "Il Penseroso," as well as updated Help documentation that reflects the launch of the Virtual Lightbox and recent improvements to the Archive's search engines. The Archive has already published in its Preview Mode a selection of 23 impressions of the large color printed drawings (at least one impression of each) and the small version of Pity printed from a different matrix. With this republication, the Archive adds five impressions of five designs: Newton (Lutheran Church in America), never before reproduced in color, God Judging Adam (Philadelphia Museum of Art), Nebuchadnezzar (Minneapolis Institute of Arts), Satan Exulting over Eve (Tate Collection), and Naomi Entreating Ruth and Orpah to Return to the Land of Moab (Fitzwilliam Museum). The Archive now contains all extant impressions of the twelve designs except the last impression of Hecate, or the Night of Enitharmon's Joy, in the National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh, which declined the Archive's request for a high-resolution image. With this republication, all the impressions of the color printed drawings are searchable and their illustration descriptions accessible, enabling users to engage in detailed, specific, and reliable searches of motifs, objects, subjects, and gestures.

Electronic edition of The Pickering Manuscript
Grant details: RQ-50531-10
Title: Electronic edition of The Pickering Manuscript
Author: William Blake
Abstract: In 1803, after three increasingly unhappy years in Felpham, Sussex, as artist-in-residence for William Hayley, Blake wrote in a letter to his friend and patron Thomas Butts, "O why was I born with a different face / Why was I not born like the rest of my race" (Erdman pages 733-34). He varied that couplet only slightly in the separate poem "Mary,” which at some point he copied neatly into a 22-page manuscript with nine other poems—seven known from no other source—on paper that he reutilized from Hayley's Designs to a Series of Ballads, 1802 (to which Blake had contributed engraved illustrations). On the spacious inside margins he wrote out the ten poems that constitute what is conventionally known as The Pickering Manuscript—after one of its several nineteenth century owners. The Pickering Manuscript follows An Island in the Moon as the second major project overseen by the Archive team from the University of Rochester’s department of English. The manuscripts, like other works in the Archive, have fully searchable texts and images supported by our ImageSizer application; by the Archive's revamped search engines, which allow more productive searching; and by the Virtual Lightbox, our new digital tool that allows users to examine images (including images of texts) side by side, as well as to manipulate them for close study. The manuscripts feature zoomed images of textual cruxes to strengthen the explanatory power of Editors’ Notes. A sophisticated XML tagset integrated with a straightforward and legible color coding system (using XSLT and CSS) reduces the clutter of conventional textual signs and symbols. A simple key to the color coding is available from every page of the transcriptions.

Electronic edition of the Songs of Innocence and of Experience copy E
Grant details: RQ-50531-10
Title: Electronic edition of the Songs of Innocence and of Experience copy E
Author: William Blake
Abstract: This copy, prepared in 1806 especially for Thomas Butts, Blake's patron, is in the Huntington Library and Art Gallery. Complete copies of Songs consist of 54 impressions; due to the way Blake assembled Songs copy E, it has 54 impressions, but it is missing "The Clod & the Pebble" and has duplicates of "Laughing Song." Almost all the impressions were printed from various print runs, with most of the Innocence impressions coming from the raw sienna and yellow-ochre printing of 1789 (see Innocence copy B in the Archive), and its Experience impressions coming from the yellow-ochre impressions that form Experience of Songs copies B, C, and D, printed in 1794 (copies B and C are in the Archive). Like all the illuminated books in the Archive, the text and images of Songs copy E are fully searchable and are supported by our Virtual Lightbox and ImageSizer applications. With the Archive's Compare feature, users can easily juxtapose multiple impressions of any plate across the different copies of this or any of the other illuminated books, and with the Lightbox, users can examine images from any of the works side by side, as well as crop, zoom, and juxtapose them for close study. New protocols for transcription, which produce improved accuracy and fuller documentation in editors' notes, have been applied to copy E and to all the Songs texts previously published.

Title: The republication of nine electronic editions of Blake’s water colors illustrating the works of John Milton
Author: William Blake
Abstract: “Comus,” Thomas Set, 1801 “Comus,” Butts Set, c. 1815 “On the Morning of Christ’s Nativity,” Thomas Set, 1809 “On the Morning of Christ’s Nativity,” Butts Set, c. 1815 “Paradise Lost,” Thomas Set, 1807 “Paradise Lost,” Butts Set, 1808 “Paradise Lost,” Linnell Set, 1822 “Paradise Regained” c. 1816-20 “L’Allegro” and “Il Penseroso” c. 1816-20 These nine water color series were previously published in our Preview mode, one that provides all the features of the Archive except illustration descriptions and Image Search; with this republication, those features become available. The republication of the Milton water colors is timed to take advantage of the Archive's revamped search engines, launched in July, which allow for more detailed, specific and reliable searching of illustration descriptions, and the Virtual Lightbox, our new digital tool that allows users to examine images side by side, as well as to crop, zoom, and juxtapose them for close study. It is the ideal means for studying and comparing Blake’s Milton watercolors. The republication of these nine series represents a major advance toward the Archive's goal of eventually republishing all works currently available in Preview mode and publishing all new Archive images so that they are searchable.

Revamped search engines for Archive content and a new research application called the Virtual Lightbox
Grant details: RQ-50531-10
Title: Revamped search engines for Archive content and a new research application called the Virtual Lightbox
Author: William Shaw, technical editor
Abstract: Our new search engines provide a powerful, streamlined interface for exploring both textual and pictorial elements of Blake's work in the Archive. In addition to searching transcriptions of Blake's work, users can now search visual motifs, work titles, and editors' notes and detailed illustration descriptions. Users can also restrict search results by date range, order them by composition or print date, or broaden them by including synonyms and related words from the Archive's new search term thesaurus. These features make possible precise searches for details in Blake's images. For example, users can search for figures in specific postures (such as "running" or "arms raised") in designs executed during the 1790s. It is also possible to search for many motifs simultaneously—for example, all designs with sheep, AND trees, AND a shepherd—or to search for works containing any one of the search terms—for example, all designs with sheep, OR trees, OR a shepherd. The updated search engines also restore search functionality to the Archive's electronic edition of The Complete Poetry and Prose of William Blake, edited by David V. Erdman. The Virtual Lightbox is an application that allows users to collect, study, and manipulate images in the Archive. It incorporates all the features of our existing Java applets, Inote and ImageSizer, while adding a number of new capabilities that make it an ideal workspace for research in the Archive. For example, the Lightbox allows users to examine works in different media side by side; to crop, zoom, and juxtapose images for close study; and to access image information and illustration descriptions from within the Lightbox workspace. The Archive plans to release the source code of the Virtual Lightbox under the MIT License later this year.

Electronic editions of copies D and G of The Book of Thel
Grant details: RQ-50531-10
Title: Electronic editions of copies D and G of The Book of Thel
Author: William Blake
Abstract: Copy D is in the British Museum and copy G is in the Fitzwilliam Museum. The Book of Thel is dated 1789 by Blake on the title page, but the first plate (Thel's Motto) and the last (her descent into the netherworld) appear to have been completed and first printed in 1790, while Blake was working on The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. Copies D and G are from the first of three printings of Thel, during which Blake produced at least thirteen copies, printed in five different inks to diversify his stock. Copy D, for example, was printed in yellow ochre ink, copy G in green and greenish-blue inks; both are lightly finished in water colors. Copies from this press run were certainly on hand when Blake included the book in his advertisement "To the Public" of October 1793: "The Book of Thel, a Poem in Illuminated Printing. Quarto, with 6 designs, price 3s." Copies D and G join copies in the Archive from the other two printings: copy F, printed and colored c. 1795, and copy O, printed and colored c. 1818. They also join copies H, J, L, and R from the first printing. Like all the illuminated books in the Archive, the text and images of Thel copies D and G are fully searchable and are supported by our Inote and ImageSizer applications. With the Archive's Compare feature, users can easily juxtapose multiple impressions of any plate across the different copies of this or any of the other illuminated books. New protocols for transcription, which produce improved accuracy and fuller documentation in editors' notes, have been applied to copies D and G and to all the Thel texts previously published.

Electronic edition of thirty-three of Blake’s water color illustrations to the Bible
Grant details: RQ-50531-10
Title: Electronic edition of thirty-three of Blake’s water color illustrations to the Bible
Author: William Blake
Abstract: The William Blake Archive is pleased to announce the publication of an electronic edition of thirty-three of Blake’s water color illustrations to the Bible. All take their subjects from the New Testament and have been added to the twenty Old Testament subjects published in March 2010 as “Illustrations to the Bible, c. 1780-1824,” under Drawings and Paintings, Water Color Drawings. This new group is presented in our Preview mode, one that provides all the features of the Archive except Image Search and Inote (which provides detailed descriptions of Blake’s images). Blake executed most of these New Testament water colors c. 1800-05 for his patron Thomas Butts. The exceptions are The Whore of Babylon of 1809 and The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins in the Yale Center for British Art, datable to c. 1825. The subjects range from the childhood of Jesus to his ascension, the later history of his parents and one of his major followers, St. Paul, and a group of eight designs based on the Book of Revelation. While the illustrations of the life of Christ are fairly conventional in their subjects, in part because of the long tradition of picturing almost every event in the Gospels, individual motifs recall designs in Blake’s illuminated books and thus offer a window on Blake’s visual interpretation of the Bible. The illustrations of Revelation complement Blake’s intense engagement with apocalyptic events and images in his own poetry. The selection of fifty-three biblical water colors now available in the Archive will be supplemented in the future with early works, such as Abraham and Isaac, datable to c. 1780, and will continue through Blake’s final biblical water colors, such as Moses Placed in the Ark of the Bulrushes.

Electronic editions of Blake's illustrations to Robert John Thornton's edition of The Pastorals of Virgil (1821) and a selection of his preliminary drawings for his Virgil wood engravings
Grant details: RQ-50531-10
Title: Electronic editions of Blake's illustrations to Robert John Thornton's edition of The Pastorals of Virgil (1821) and a selection of his preliminary drawings for his Virgil wood engravings
Author: William Blake
Abstract: When planning a third edition of his successful school text of Virgil's Pastorals, Robert John Thornton employed Blake to contribute some of the new designs for the two-volume work. His assignment was to illustrate Ambrose Philips' English "imitation" of Virgil's first eclogue. Blake produced four small designs as relief etchings on a single copperplate, but these were rejected by Thornton. There may have been several reasons, including the unconventional style of etching, the semi-nudity of some of the figures, and the difficulties letterpress printers would have encountered with such an unusual matrix. Apparently Blake was asked to prepare wood engravings, a medium in which he had never before worked, instead of relief etchings. He executed a series of at least twenty-one pen, pencil, and wash preliminary drawings; these were probably approved by Thornton. The wood engravings that Blake produced from them, however, were far less conventional. Thornton was again taken aback by Blake's bold transgression of contemporary styles and sensibilities. Several influential artists, including John Linnell and Sir Thomas Lawrence, commended Blake's work; their opinions convinced Thornton to print them in his 1821 edition. Three designs were engraved by a journeyman for the sake of comparison with Blake's own productions in wood, and Thornton added a statement below Blake's first design implying his hesitations about Blake's artistry. Pre-publication proofs of Blake's wood engravings show that each group of four were cut on a single block; these were cut apart, slightly reduced in size on all four sides, and printed with brief letterpress captions. This format, as published in Thornton's Virgil, is preserved in our reproductions.

Electronic edition of nineteen of Blake’s tempera paintings illustrating the Bible
Grant details: RQ-50531-10
Title: Electronic edition of nineteen of Blake’s tempera paintings illustrating the Bible
Author: William Blake
Abstract: The Bible had an enormous influence on Blake's work as both artist and poet. Among his many and complex responses to that text is a group of paintings he created for his patron Thomas Butts, beginning in 1799. Most were executed in that year and the next, but at least three were probably completed while Blake was in Felpham, 1802 and 1803. Fifty-three of these "cabinet paintings" (as small works of this type were called in Blake's time) have been recorded. Only thirty are now traceable, seven based on the Old Testament and the remainder on the New. This group of nineteen paintings is the second installment in our publication of a large selection of Blake's drawings and paintings illustrating the Bible. The first installment, a group of twenty water colors with subjects based on the Old Testament, was published in March of this year. The medium of these paintings, now generally called "tempera," is water-based with a glue and/or gum binder. Blake was probably trying to create jewel-like paintings; in his Descriptive Catalogue of 1809, he compared them to "enamels" and "precious stones." He never used the word "tempera" but called his medium "fresco"—a term that recalls Renaissance wall paintings—and claimed that he had invented the new genre of "portable Fresco," an alternative to paintings in oil. Most were executed on canvas, but three are on copper and one (The Agony in the Garden) is on tinned iron. Unfortunately, Blake's medium was inherently unstable. The pigment layers expanded and contracted at different rates. Almost all his temperas of 1799-1803 show considerable surface cracking and other defects; many have been repaired at least once. Some, such as The Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes, have been over-painted in ways that misrepresent Blake's original work.

Electronic edition of An Island in the Moon
Grant details: RQ-50531-10
Title: Electronic edition of An Island in the Moon
Author: William Blake
Abstract: An Island in the Moon (Fitzwilliam Museum) is an incomplete manuscript written in pen and ink in Blake’s hand. It notably contains the earliest extant drafts of "Nurse’s Song," "HOLY THURSDAY," and "The Little Boy Lost," which make their first published appearance in his Songs of Innocence (1789). Topical allusions and the history of Blake’s associations with the London social circle of the Rev. A. S. Mathew and his wife Harriet in the 1780s suggest a period of composition c. 1784-85. Before the manuscript was given to the Fitzwilliam Museum in 1905, two or more leaves may have been removed. The contents of a final page of lettering and rough sketches (object 18), apparently unrelated to the text of Island, may reflect Robert Blake's attempts to draw subjects that had been set as exercises for him by older brother William (see Editors’ Notes for object 18). In An Island in the Moon Blake, writing in his mid to late 20s, demonstrates a born satirist’s instincts for the ridiculous with a boisterous sendup of middle class London social and intellectual life distilled into eleven brief chapters of "Great confusion & disorder" (object 10). The use of dialogue interspersed with song lyrics links the narrative to both contemporary theatrical forms and broader eighteenth-century satirical traditions. Blake’s experiences in the Mathew circle may be the main inspiration for these mocking reflections, which feature impertinent, passionate, confrontational characters, some if not all derived from Blake’s contemporaries, probably including Blake himself and his younger brother Robert as Quid and Suction. Although Blake left it orphaned, untitled, and unfinished in a heavily revised manuscript, Island is in some sense a primary literary experiment for him, setting the undertone of much to follow.

Electronic editions of The Marriage of Heaven and Hell copies B and E
Grant details: RQ-50531-10
Title: Electronic editions of The Marriage of Heaven and Hell copies B and E
Author: William Blake
Abstract: Only nine complete copies of the Marriage are known to exist; copies B and E—here reproduced for the first time in their entirety and in color—join copies C, D, F, G, H, and I, previously published in the Archive. Blake etched twenty-seven plates for the Marriage in relief in 1790. Copy B, one of the first complete copies printed, is essentially monochrome, relying on colored inks rather than water color washes for its coloring. It was produced with copy H in 1790, with plates printed in various shades of reddish brown, yellow ochre, raw umber, olive green, and green on both sides of the leaves. However, the impressions forming copy H (Fitzwilliam Museum) were extensively finished in watercolors and pen and ink, with texts gone over in various colored inks, letter by letter, line by line, presumably when sold in 1821 to Blake’s young patron, John Linnell. Copy B, its sister copy, looks nothing like copy H, but provides an excellent idea of what copy H originally looked like. Copy E is also a sister copy, beautifully and heavily color printed c. 1794 on one side of the leaf with copy F (Morgan Library). It was produced in the style used for Songs of Experience of Songs of Innocence and of Experience copy F and Visions of the Daughters of Albion copy F, both color printed c. 1794 and in the Archive. The plates in copy E were once ordered other than 1-27, as they are now, but this variant plate order is probably not by Blake. The red outlines around eleven images are not by Blake. Like all the illuminated books in the Archive, the texts and images of Marriage copies B and E are fully searchable and are supported by our Inote and ImageSizer applications. With the Archive's Compare feature, users can easily juxtapose multiple impressions of any plate across the different copies of this or any of the other illuminated books.

The Almanacks of Mary Moody Emerson: A Scholarly Digital Edition
Grant details: RQ-50719-13
Title: The Almanacks of Mary Moody Emerson: A Scholarly Digital Edition
Author: Noelle A. Baker
Author: Sandra Harbert Petrulionis
Abstract: Our digital edition of Mary Emerson’s Almanacks is being published in phases. The edition adheres to editorial reporting standards established by the Modern Language Association’s Committee on Scholarly Editions and is conformant with TEI Guidelines for XML encoding. A foundational text in Women Writers Online—representing the collection’s first manuscript series—The Almanacks of Mary Moody Emerson complements the works of other women writers in the database, which reaches an international audience of scholars, students, and the general public at nearly 220 subscribing institutions, with free research access to the source data granted on request. Emerson’s Almanacks contribute significantly to women’s intellectual history; document the extent to which early American women embraced transatlantic culture; and evidence the ways in which Emerson anticipates signal aspects of Transcendentalism, the antebellum movement for which her nephew is considered the primary spokesman. Our edition demonstrates that in adopting self-development as a conduct of life, Emerson serves as one of the earliest illustrations of an emerging critical reconsideration of Transcendentalism, envisaged through women. Highlighting the manuscripts’ material culture, the edition demonstrates Emerson's ongoing engagement in manuscript circulation, generic experimentation, social authorship, and self-cultivation, attributes that anticipate the similar but more radical experiments of Emily Dickinson; it also provides specific examples of the modes of intellectual transmission between Mary and Waldo Emerson.

On Aristotle's De anima
Grant details: RQ-50812-14
Title: On Aristotle's De anima
Author: Adam Buckfield
Author: Jennifer Ottman
Abstract: This is one of the two most influential early De anima commentaries and the first to draw on Richard Rufus' commentary. It not only records Rufus' influence but in the case of difficult passages allows us to improve the text we publish. This work was made available to us by special permission from Helen Powell who published excerpts in her Oxford thesis. Since Miss Powell has since died, her thesis is virtually unavailable now. So we publish this research tool on our website, based on more manuscripts than were available to Powell for the use of other scholars.

Perseus Digital Library
Grant details: RT-21620-94
Title: Perseus Digital Library
Author: Gregory Crane
Abstract: Since planning began in 1985, the Perseus Digital Library Project has explored what happens when libraries move online. Two decades later, as new forms of publication emerge and millions of books become digital, this question is more pressing than ever. Perseus is a practical experiment in which we explore possibilities and challenges of digital collections in a networked world. For the mission of Perseus and its current research, see here. Perseus maintains a web site that showcases collections and services developed as a part of our research efforts over the years. The code for the digital library system and many of the collections that we have developed are now available. For more information, please go here. Our flagship collection, under development since 1987, covers the history, literature and culture of the Greco-Roman world. We are applying what we have learned from Classics to other subjects within the humanities and beyond. We have studied many problems over the past two decades, but our current research centers on personalization: organizing what you see to meet your needs.

Azoria Project Archive
Grant details: RZ-20812-02
Title: Azoria Project Archive
Author: Donald C. Haggis
Abstract: The Azoria Project Archive is a collection of original documents and publications generated from fieldwork and research of the Azoria Project, an excavation of the Department of Classics and the Research Laboratories of Archaeology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Azoria is an Early Iron Age and Archaic site in eastern Crete, originally explored by Harriet Boyd Hawes for the American School of Classical Studies at Athens in 1900. Subsequent work at the site (the Azoria Project) has been conducted annually since 2001, including phases of topographical survey (2001); excavation (2002-2006); site conservation (2003-2008); and study and publication (2007-2012). The documents in this collection comprise an archive of original field notes, excavation notebooks, stratigraphic sections, manuscript drafts, artifact catalogs, and illustrations (plans, drawings, maps, and photographs) produced by this research project.

Digital Archive: Chinese Railroad Workers in North America
Grant details: RZ-230425-15
Title: Digital Archive: Chinese Railroad Workers in North America
Author: Gabriel Wolfenstein
Author: Gordon Chang
Author: Shelley Fisher Fishkin
Author: Roland Hsu
Author: Hilton Obenzinger
Abstract: The second digital product will be the “Stanford University Chinese Railroad Workers in North America Digital Archive” (the “Archive.”) We are designing this as the world’s leading and enduring resource for future generations of historians and the general public. It will be hosted by Stanford University Libraries in perpetuity. The Archive is the achievement of our Stanford research administrative team, and our goal is to open the archive, attract a worldwide audience, and guide users through search and discovery. Visitors to the Archive will be welcomed with two leading-edge digital features: A) Digital “Exhibits.” We will build digital “exhibits” through the Stanford Digital Repository “Spotlight” portal. Each digital “exhibit” will illuminate a small selection of items from our archive with short one thousand-word explanatory essays. The selections and the essays in exhibit format have been shown to attract new audiences. Visitors will in this way take a guided “tour” of the Archive, and gain insight and appreciation in a short amount of time. Our team will curate the “exhibits.” The digital format also gives us the chance to offer “guest curatorships” to professional scholars, teachers, and possibly amateur historians for an expanding series of digital exhibits using our open Archive. B) Digital “Visualizations.” We will build visual representations to serve as the interactive interface for scholars to use the Archive. For advanced scholars and general audiences alike, the visualizations will illuminate meanings and patterns in our unprecedented treasury of sources. Prototypes have been developed to indicate the sites along the rail route for which we have richest collected sources; other visualizations highlight where we need more discovery.

African Social History & Data Across Bantu Matrilineal Communities
Grant details: RZ-249953-16
Title: African Social History & Data Across Bantu Matrilineal Communities
Author: Christine Saidi
Author: Catherine Cymone Fourshey
Author: Julie Hagenbush
Author: Troy Spier
Author: Ronda Gonzales
Abstract: The primary aim of this project has been to reconstruct early precolonial histories of gender, family, and status in Bantu speaking communities that have historically developed matrilineal institutions. These historical reconstructions, stretching back at times three thousand years, are rooted in understanding people’s ideas and values captured in the words communities developed. Thus language data are the core of this historical record. In addition to language data collected from modern day speakers and in dictionaries compiled over the last 150 years - consulted in libraries, archives, and personal collections - ethnographic surveys, oral traditions (written and orally recounted) have been important in contextualizing verbs, nouns, and other parts of speech. These materials provide critical context for comparative analyses and broader reconstructions. The more recently collected research materials compliment the linguistic, ethnographic, oral, and archaeological data each of the collaborators has collected since the mid-1990s. Collectively the materials provide concrete material aspects of life as well as more abstract, metaphorical that capture the real meanings of words and ideas. Literal speech can often confuse native speakers while metaphorical speech expresses layers of expansive meaning and captures the imaginations and hearts of native speakers.

African Matrilineal Histories Database
Grant details: RZ-249953-16
Title: African Matrilineal Histories Database
Author: Rhonda M. Gonzales
Author: Troy Spier
Author: Catherine Cymone Fourshey
Author: Christine Saidi
Abstract: This project involves collection, analysis, digital mapping, and interpretation of historical linguistic data relating to more than seventy Bantu-speaking societies living across Eastern and Central Africa. It is an examination of the structures and cultural ideas underpinning the world's Bantu speakers constructed across time and space. Our own work has focused on family relations and generational education and status. This project in particular is funded by an NEH collaborative grant: Expressions and Transformations of Gender, Family, and Status in Eastern and Central Africa 500-1800 CE (RZ-249953-16). This has culminated in several scholarly products, including a book entitled Family before Gender: A History of Central and Eastern Africa, c. 500-1900 and how historically matrilineages underpinned the way communities determined organization and inheritance. This collaboration is centered on questions about lineage and gender as dimensions of authority, identity, belonging, and worldview historically. It builds on the esteemed work of colleagues who have undertaken historical studies of gender in Africa to interrogate epistemological assumptions. We collected new sets of linguistic data and focused on spheres related to the above inquiries for approximately seventy societies across Zambia, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Mozambique. We have produced a history examining how historically matrilineages underpinned the way communities determined organization, inheritance, and social authority. We leverage our prior individual work in Africa for a comparative trans-regional analysis and expand the geographic and linguistic scope. This website invites curious people, scholars, teachers and students to explore our language evidence along with oral traditions, photos of relevant art, dictionaries, missionaries’ reports, archaeological studies and ethnographic collections of the Bantu speaking people in the Bantu Matrilineal Belt.

Author: Andrew Coulson
Author: Nayla Kabazi Muntasser
Abstract: Andrew Coulson initially designed the Oplontis Project database in 2009 and has refined it as we continue to build data for both Villa A and Oplontis B. It consists of a rich user interface provided by a Java web application and leverages MySQL relational database as the metadata information store. Both the web application and the database are currently hosted on an Amazon Web Services server instance. The web application stores photographs and documents uploaded by Project members in a permanent iRODS collection hosted on the Corral storage system at the Texas Advanced Computer Center at the University of Texas at Austin. The entire set of metadata is periodically exported from the database to the XML and is also stored in the iRODS collection.
