Execution Ballads (Radio/Audio Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Execution Ballads
Writer: Una McIlvenna
Director: Robyn Johnston
Producer: Robyn Johnston
Abstract: This truly gruesome program explores the phenomenon of the execution ballad—the printed pamphlet telling, in song, the story of the crime and of the condemned. These songs tell of the descent into vice, give account of the crime in all its appalling detail and purport to give voice to the true repentance of the doomed sinner. In what was a profitable line of business for early printers, the songs were declaimed by the ballad seller and spruiked to the crowd who’d gathered to see the offender put to death.

Samuel Pepys and the Making of Ballad Publics (Book Section)
Title: Samuel Pepys and the Making of Ballad Publics
Author: Patricia Fumerton
Abstract: Drawing especially on the everyday details about the circulation of broadside ballads as narrated in Samuel Pepys’s diary, 1660–1669, this essay explores the makings of ballad publics in seventeenth-century England. By ‘publics’ I refer to unofficial and free forms of association based on a shared, if sometimes only roughly articulated agenda, before the rise around 1700 of what has been come to be known as the Habermasian ‘public sphere’. As Leslie P. Cormack summarizes, we must think of pre-Habermasian publics not along his model of a strictly unified (male) middle class engaged in political critique of its aristocracy but, in a less constrained way: as ‘a loose collection of people, not all of whom have personal knowledge of one another, connected by a common interest in a particular subject and with some social or political goal in mind’. By virtue of their being publics, not the public, I would add, such informal assemblages are multiple and always in the making (meaning that they can emerge and die out in an organic way). They are also capable of being stronger or weaker depending on the particular persons or circumstances or time periods involved. With this liberal definition in mind, my essay will track the making of multiple seventeenth-century English ballad publics that emerge out a shared cultural understanding across classes of the nature and function of broadside ballads. It concludes with the idea that a ballad public – or pluralistically conceived, ballad publics – consists of encircling spheres wherein strength lies closest to the center but can also arise and decrease anywhere, in any encircling sphere, on the spur of the moment.

The English Broadside Ballad Archive: From Theory to Practice (Book Section)
Title: The English Broadside Ballad Archive: From Theory to Practice
Author: Tassie Gniady
Author: Patricia Fumerton
Author: Simone Chess
Editor: Ian Frederick Moulton
Editor: Heidi Brayman Hackel
Abstract: The availability of digital editions of early modern works brings a wealth of exciting archival and primary source materials into the classroom. But electronic archives can be overwhelming and hard to use, for teachers and students alike, and digitization can distort or omit information about texts. Teaching Early Modern English Literature from the Archives places traditional and electronic archives in conversation, outlines practical methods for incorporating them into the undergraduate and graduate curriculum, and addresses the theoretical issues involved in studying them. The volume discusses a range of physical and virtual archives from 1473 to 1700 that are useful in the teaching of early modern literature—both major sources and rich collections that are less known (including affordable or free options for those with limited institutional resources). Although the volume focuses on English literature and culture, essays discuss a wide range of comparative approaches involving Latin, French, Spanish, German, and early American texts and explain how to incorporate visual materials, ballads, domestic treatises, atlases, music, and historical documents into the teaching of literature.

Arch-V: A Platform for Image-Based Search and Retrieval of Digital Archives (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Arch-V: A Platform for Image-Based Search and Retrieval of Digital Archives
Author: Carl Stahmer
Abstract: Arch-V (short for Archive Vision) is a newly developed C++ application that provides image based search capabilities for digital archives of print materials. In 2013 the English Broadside Ballad Archive (EBBA) at the Early Modern Center, University of California, Santa Barbara was awarded an NEH Start-Up Grant to begin work on the Ballad Impression Archive (BIA), a component of EBBA specifically devoted to cataloguing the over 9,000 (and growing) individual woodcut impressions in EBBA and making them fully searchable as an image collection. A key component of this award was the creation of software to provide automated, image based searching of the collection. The proposed short paper will introduce and provide an overview of the implementation procedures for Arch-V.
