“Negotiating the Cultural Turn in the Digital Humanities” (Article)
Title: “Negotiating the Cultural Turn in the Digital Humanities”
Author: Timothy B. Powell
Abstract: This article raises the question of why the digital humanities seems to have returned to a focus on literary works by canonical American authors. The field of American Studies underwent a twenty year struggle at the end of the 20th century to try to increase cultural diversity and yet this emphasis on diversity seems to have been lost in the digital humanities. Our NEH ODH grant created a digital online archive entitled Gibagadinamaagoom, focused on the Ojibwe Indians which demonstrates that, in fact, digital technology lends itself remarkably well to conveying the Native American oral tradition.

“Encoding Culture: Building a Digital Archive Based on Traditional Ojibwe Codes of Conduct” (Article)
Title: “Encoding Culture: Building a Digital Archive Based on Traditional Ojibwe Codes of Conduct”
Author: Timothy B. Powell
Abstract: This article focuses on many of the issues raised in the NEH ODH grant: the question of how traditional Ojibwe codes of conduct should be reflected in the digital codes of the Gibagadinamaagoom: An Ojibwe Digital Archive website; freely available information on the web vs. restrictions based on cultural sensitivity; how the digital humanities can become more culturally diverse; the relationship between digital technology and the Native American oral tradition (e.g., that the oral tradition can actually be much more accurately represented in digital form than in print media).
