DPE: Repositories

registry of repositories

The DPE Registry of Repositories is intended as a resource which will cover a representative group of digital repositories from within the European Union. The purpose of DPE is to further digital preservation among all those organisations capable of benefiting from it, including those which may not yet be fully aware of or responsive to the particular challenges posed by long-term preservation. DPE therefore uses the broadest possible definition of a Digital Repository, rather than restricting itself only to those organisations satisfying recognised standards such as OAIS or OAI-PMH. A suitably broad definition would be that adopted in the RLG-NARA document on Trusted Digital Repositories "an organization that intends to maintain information for access and use". For DPE purposes this definition can even be broadened slightly:

"A Digital Repository is any organisation which has a mandate to maintain digital information potentially or actually available for access and use"

United States Historical Election Returns, 1788 - 1968, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...rns%22&d-3167178-p=1

Description:

This URL represents 125 records, split by two periods (1788 - 1823 and 1824 - 1968) and by state.Period 1: Data for general elections to the offices of President, Governor and US Representatives for the years 1788 - 1823. These returns comprise an extension of the general election collection back to the occurrence of the first elections held under the United States Constitution. The data are recorded chiefly at the county-level, although town-level returns were collected and preserved as well for the New England states. This collection of early national period election returns is much less complete than the body of returns available for the years from 1824 to the present; fugitive and nonextant sources resulted in the recovery of only approximately half of the possible returns for elections in this period.Period 2: This collection of historical election data contains state files which list county-level returns for over ninety percent of all elections to the offices of president, governor, United States senator and representative from 1824 through 1968. The data files contain returns for all parties and candidates (as well as write-in and scattering votes if available for individual states), and for special elections as well as regularly-scheduled contests. Over one thousand individual party names as well as those of many additional unaffiliated candidates are included.Main Topics:The election data have been matched-merged and fixed-formatted within states. Because of the volume of data available for some states, it has been necessary to store the election returns in more than one file per state. County names have been standardized, including names which have experienced name changes over time. In addition to the names, a a county identification number has been added to all county-level records. This number allows unique identification of all counties within states.Data for elections to the office of United States representative have been collapsed to the whole-county level.The election data files for each county contain the congressional district nuumber of that county at the time of each election for the office of United States representative . When a county was divided into more than one congressional district, a code value indicating the number of congressional districts into which the county was divided was inserted in place of the congressional district number. It is thus possible to aggregate to the congressional district level all county-level election data (except in the case of split-district counties), and to perform the aggregations for the districts as they were constituted for any Congress.For the 1970 to 1985 election returns data, see General Election Data for the United States (SN:2105).

Description:

This database is a digital record of The Basic Design Collection. Approximately 660 images of work produced on Basic Design courses have been digitised, including student work from the collections of: Richard Hamilton; Tom Hudson, Victor Pasmore, and Harry Thubron. The Basic Design method of teaching was an approach to tertiary art education which attempted to purge students of what was believed to be 'false' culture of romantic imagery which had been projected onto them by secondary examination requirements. The students were instead introduced to elementary notions of the European avant-garde, immersing them in a genuine culture of serious, experimental artistic endeavour. Examples of students' work, slides and photographs represent the Basic Design courses at King's College University of Durham (now the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne), Leeds College of Art and Design, Leicester College, Lancaster College of Art and Cardiff College of Art, plus teaching programmes in Canada and in the USA. The Basic Design Collection is one of the collections held by the National Arts Education Archive (Trust), which is based at Bretton Hall and was established in 1985 to preserve documentary trace developments in art, craft and design education from the last century to the present.

Description:

This database is a digital record of the Imperial War Museum Concise Art Collection. It contains nearly 1,700 images of paintings, drawings, sculpture and posters from 1914 to the present day relating to the subject of war. The art collection was started in 1916 by Sir Muirhead Bone as a mechanism for propoganda but it became a memorial to the Great War under Lord Beaverbrook, who commissioned many of the greatest artists (including the avant-garde) of the time to create tributes. At the beginning of World War 2 war artists were again used for propoganda purposes to cover the Blitz and the 'theatre of war', recording events in North Africa, Europe and the Far East. Since the early 1970s war artists have been commissioned to record the activities of British and Commonwealth troops during both war and peace, this includes the Falkland Islands; the Gulf and Bosnia.

Description:

This image database consists of 19 images from the Slade School of Fine Art, London. The Slade was one of the most important English art schools of the late 19th and twentieth centuries. It was renowned for the curriculum, based on the French system of art education, adopted by Edward Poynter the first Slade Professor which emphasised life drawing above the long period of study from the antique which was the norm at institutions such as the Royal Academy. The collection has been formed by means of a prize system through which works were presented to the college in various categories. The Summer Composition Competition prize was the most prestigious of the prizes awarded to students at the Slade. Students were set a title at the beginning of the Summer Vacation and produced large multi-figure compositions. Prizes were also awarded for life painting and drawing, head painting, landscape and paintings and drawings after the antique, and printmaking. The Fine Art Project was funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC). Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

fineart.ac.uk: Birmingham Institute of Art & Design, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...on.htm?uri=va-FA11-1

Description:

This image database consists of 15 images taken from the Birmingham School of Art's Archive, which demonstrate the influence of Pre-Raphaelitism and the Arts and Crafts movement on the teaching of art in Birmingham at the end of the nineteenth century. Birmingham was a recognised centre of Pre-Raphaelite interest by 1850s, and members of the Brotherhood were frequently invited to show works with the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. Many of the influential industrialists, politicians and philanthropists in Birmingham were adherents to Ruskinian beliefs in Nature. The city's non-sectarian municipal elite were also collectors of late Pre-Raphaelite and Arts and Crafts work. In this municipal climate an Arts and Crafts ethos flourished at the School of Art. Birmingham Institute of Art & Design (as it is known now) was instrumental in shaping the Fine Arts in Birmingham and the surrounding region in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The majority of the artists in the loosely termed Birmingham School were students or staff (often both) at the School. Staff and students operated almost as an unofficial guild, undertaking numerous private commissions in the region. One of the artists represented in the collection is Florence Camm, who attended the School intermittently from 1892-1912. The Fine Art Project was funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC). Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

Design Council Slide Collection, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

Description:

This database is a digital record of the Design Council Slide Collection. Approximately 2,800 images have been digitised as part of the JISC Image Digitisation Initiative (JIDI). The Design Council Slide Collection has its origins in the Photographic Library set up by the Council of Industrial Design (CoID) in 1945. The CoID was established by the British government the previous year 'to promote by all practicable means the improvement of design in the products of British industry'. In 1972 the CoID was renamed the Design Council. Following a review of the Design Council's role and functions in 1993, it withdrew from many of the services it operated, including the running of the slide library. As a result, the collection was deposited on permanent loan to the Manchester Metropolitan University's Department of History of Art and Design in 1995. The collection comprises almost 22,500 images and covers most areas of design. Due to the national role of the Council, the emphasis is mainly upon British design from 1945 to 1990, but there are also many images illustrating design from other countries and from earlier periods. Furthermore, the collection contains a large number of original and unique images that record directly many of the Council's own activities, including its annual design award scheme introduced in 1957, and the various exhibitions and other events that it organised or contributed to in the UK and abroad.

Bodleian Library, University of Oxford: John Johnson Collection of Printed ephemera (Political and Satirical prints), Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...on.htm?uri=va-JJPP-1

Description:

This database is a digital record of the Political and Satirical prints subject section of the John Johnson Collection of Printed ephemera at the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford. There are around 1450 images, which include the Political Cartoons sequence, and subjects such as fashion and taxation. The John Johnson Collection was assembled by John de Monins Johnson (1882-1956) who was inspired by his work as a papyrologist in Egypt to rescue Britain's immediate paper heritage. Johnson subsequently worked at the Oxford University Press. The Collection was transferred to the Bodleian Library from the Oxford University Press in 1968, since when both old and modern ephemera have been added to it. There are in excess of one million items which span the 16th to 20th centuries. The Collection is strongest in 19th and early 20th century ephemera, with significant holdings in the 18th century.

Description:

This image database consists of 32 images from the Norwich School of Art and Design. Norwich School of Art began as one of the earliest of the provincial or branch schools which followed the Head School in London set up in Somerset House, by the Board of Trade in 1837. The foundation and subsequent history of the Norwich School of Art is part of a continuing tradition of artistic activity in Norwich, the only provincial city to have produced a fraternity of artists with a national significance in the development of European landscape-painting. Some of the second and third generation of Norwich School artists, John Joseph Cotman, John Middleton, Robert Leman and Thonas Lound, were also closely connected with the early years of the School of Design.

Description:

The University of Leeds has a long association with pioneering figures who helped to mobilise the advance of fine art in the university curriculum, from Sir Michael Sadler and his exhibitions of outstanding examples of English modernism in the early part of the last century, to Peter Gregory and Herbert Read's institution in 1949 of the Gregory Fellowships in Painting and Sculpture. Leeds was one of the first universities to employ working artists in its Fine Art department, integrating studio practice with the study of art history. This development was led by Maurice de Sausmarez, Quentin Bell and Laurence Gowing, successively Heads of Department in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. The Gregory Fellows and the Fine Art Department as a whole had strong working links with the Leeds College of Art which, in the late 1950s and early 1960s, under the leadership of figures such as Harry Thubron, Eric Taylor and Ricky Atkinson, was transforming itself along Bauhaus lines. This history is extensively reflected in the holdings of the University Art Collection, which are available for study. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

Anatomical Exoskeleton, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...xoskeleton/index.htm

Description:

The Anatomical Exoskeleton website was an outcome from the Human Machine Choreography project, an interdisciplinary project that combined art, dance, and evolutionary and adaptive systems technology. It involved the development of a six-legged walking machine using an anatomical exoskeleton apparatus that explored a novel hybrid human-machine system. This walking system, with attached multiple sensors, was also used to explore interactive sound, using a variety of different sensor technologies. The website documents the research and development aims of the human machine choreography project and includes images and specific information about the innovative engineering, technological, choreographic and sound sensor aspects. 'Anatomical Exoskeleton' was developed from the prototype 'hexapod' robot, which was produced during the earlier sci-art project and which transferred from the University of Sussex to Nottingham Trent University in 2002. 'Anatomical Exoskeleton' is a flexible and compliant walking machine actuated and directed by the leg and arm movements of the operator and is pneumatically powered with fluidic muscle actuators, translating human bipedal gait into a 6-legged insect like locomotion. The second prototype designed for the project was based on the use of pneumatics in the form of fluidic muscle actuators: rubber muscles that contract when inflated, producing pulling forces, which eliminate problems of friction, stretch and fatigue in the pulley, cable and spring system of 'hexapod'. (Due to these technical developments, the name of the robot 'Anatomical Exoskeleton' changed to 'Muscle Machine'). The robotic structure created, spanning five metres in diameter, allowed for interactive, intuitive and fluid motion. Encoders on the hip joints, lifting and lowering the legs, alternatively lifted and lowered each set of three machine legs. Control switches on the arm supports allowed selection and actuation of other motion programs. The rotational movement of the robot was especially smooth and fluid. The lifting and rotating motion was achieved by the rubber muscles alternatively expanding/contracting and exhausting/extending. Dutch interactive composer Stan Wijnans joined the project team to develop a sensor-based sound system which was triggered by the movement of the hybrid body-machine unit to produce a real-time electronic sound composition. in this way, 'Anatomical Exoskeleton' became an innovative 'abstract sound' instrument. Dr Sophia Lycouris (Nottingham Trent University) contributed as choreographic advisor in the exploration of appropriate strategies for moving with the robot in a performance situation and in relation to the interactive sound design. At the end of the project, 'Muscle Machine' was presented at the Nottingham Trent University (June 2003) and performed in the 291 gallery (London, july 2003) and several other venues. The Human Machine Choreography project was the second phase of research into bio-robotics. During the first phase, the Nottingham Trent University in collaboration with the School of Cognitive and Computer Sciences at the University of Sussex developed a prototype machine (called 'hexapod') under the project title Sci-Art: bio-robotic choreography. this prototype explored solutions in relation to the mechanical structure of the walking machine under the leadership of robotics specialist Dr Inman Harvey (University of Sussex) and was supported by the Wellcome Trust. Further details can be found on the Sci-Art website which has also been deposited with AHDS. Is part of - AHDS Performing Arts

Human Avatars, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.azapp.de/ha_01.html

Description:

Through my fellowship research I was aiming to define and establish an innovative artistic working method and interface within the field of networking and new media art. The advent of new media presents a serious challenge to our understanding of visual representation, of narrative and indeed the whole art of the moving image. New narrative forms in hypertext, multimedia, computer games, interactive broadcast and screen media are constantly redefining the relationship between the creators of content and their audiences, who increasingly are becoming the co-producers of meaning. In this context one of the most interesting questions leads to the research of theory and design of narrative models as creative and interactive environments for the user. Specifically: How is this fundamental model now being reconsidered and re-formed in networked digital experiments? Is it possible to establish a performative, content-responsible task for the viewer in the new media space? Can the virtual be treated as a stage for user narrative and which interfaces are able to achieve this result? As an extension of my studies in film and media, I am generally interested in trying to break from the linear and passive plot line by actively integrating the viewer into the process of structuring the content. The majority of my practical art projects have required the involvement of the user within the drama - by slipping into a virtual performance role or having similar responsibilities in co-authoring an open and dynamic story model. Since the beginning of my fellowship I have intensively researched innovative methods of how to achieve a new classification of narrative grammar and an alternative definition of role, play and action - as the basic model of character-driven narrative is deeply under question. Human Avatars - Networked Installation (2005): Human Avatars is an interactive installation that creates a visual and imaginary dialogue between real and virtual participants on a networked stage: Visitors in the exhibition space discover a wooden hut, which they are invited to enter. Music (a guitar, text/song fragments and samples) is softly playing in the background. The participants sit down at a table, surrounded by the personal objects and props of an inhabited space, like letters, books, teacups etc. A live video of the visitor is shot by a hidden camera and sent to a remote model version of the hut. By using an optical projection trick the now small-sized participants are projected in exact proportion to the miniature room and as if they were sitting on the model furniture. Other visitors can make contact with the tiny moving figures by peeping through a small window. Yet unaware that a small surveillance camera in the model captures their faces through the window and sends them back via a data-projector onto the window of the big shed, with their huge eyes and features suddenly overshadowing the participants inside. The architecture and the direct visual exchange is playful, even thrilling. The shift in scale and sizes refers to the network as a representational stage - being big and small, hence outside and inside the medium. However, it could also turn out to be controversial and ironic, once the voyeuristic strategy behind the idyllic backdrop becomes evident - and the participants feeling more and more observed and exposed. The project then recalls rather ambivalent and melancholic side effects of surveillance, self-exposure and visual control, which we have come to accept as an intrinsic part of our life, and even as an entertaining part of mass media.

Description:

Glasgow School of Art has been teaching the visual arts since 1845. For most of its history the School has been headed by practising artists, and has a stronger and more long standing tradition than almost any other British school of art of employing practitioners on its staff. One of the earliest of these was the Glasgow sculptor John Mossman, who was followed by other significant practitioners in the medium such as Albert Hodge, George Frampton and William Reid Dick.Also in its earlier history the School was run by the painter Fra H Newbery, who during a long exhibiting career, was involved with the first Venice Biennales. Other practitioners who taught drawing and painting were, Thomas Corsan Morton, a member of the Glasgow Boys, the internationally important Belgian Symbolist Jean Delville, the portraitist Maurice Greiffenhagen R.A., the notable artist and craftsman, Robert Anning Bell, the symbolist and tempera painter Frederick Cayley Robinson, and others, such as David Forrester Wilson, Gilbert Spencer, David Donaldson, and James A. Robertson.The School has maintained its record of employing practitioners as teachers into the twenty-first century. More recent staff members and artists in residence have included, Thomas Joshua Cooper, Ken Currie, Steven Campbell, and Douglas Gordon. Among artists currently teaching at Glasgow School of Art are Christine Borland, Callum Innes, Stephanie Smith, Edward Stewart and Julie Roberts and it is some of their work which is featured on this database.

Womens Writing for Performance Website, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

Description:

This website is an output of the Women's Writing for Performance Project, a three year research programme (2003 - 2006) funded by the AHRC and led by Professors Elaine Aston and Geraldine Harris of the Lancaster Institute for Contemporary Arts at Lancaster University. The project sought to understand what strategies are employed by women in their writing practices and to analyse such strategies for their contestation of gender representation, through regularly convened practice-research events, undertaken in conjunction with international visits of the project leaders to archives and to practitioners. Practitioners for events were selected on account of their: willingness to embrace an inclusive understanding of writing practice/s; understanding of gender as in some way significant to working processes and compositional strategies; their international standing in the field and as 'subjects' of feminist performance research; their experience of leading workshops on their writing practice/s. The project culminated in a practice-research symposium, with invited papers, workshops, practice-presentations and an Artists' Forum held at the Theatre Museum in London.

Digital Art Curation & Practice: Aesthetics, Participation, Diversity (DACP), Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...on.htm?uri=pa-1053-1

Description:

The 2 year Digital Art Curation & Practice project set out to examine, through case studies, 'transitional' activities where galleries are expanding their events to include digital media. The project questioned existing definitions surrounding exhibit, event and performance in order to understand the potential for the future development of digital arts exhibition spaces. Objectives were to investigate the relationship between virtual and physical presence for digital arts: To produce an overview of international and national activity in the field of interactive digital arts. To analyse the attitudes and solutions currently offered for the display of digitally mediated arts forms. To provide guidance and recommendations for effective future curatorial practice. The Digital Art Curation & Practice project generated a number of publications and two online exhibitions. One of these exhibitions, 'Net_Working', provided material for a digital and physical performance in 2 parts, PHYSICAL_CHAT_1 was held offline at the Watershed Media Centre in Bristol, PHYSICAL_CHAT_2 played out across the Internet as part of the BEAP 2002 festival and conference in Australia. A paper from this event was published in the proceedings. Another paper concerning the curation processes for the two online exhibitions was later published for CHArt in the book 'Digital Art History' by Intellect Books, 2005. The larger exhibition, 'Net_Working', remains on a dedicated server at the Watershed Media Centre being too vast to download onto a disc. http://www.dshed.net/networking: A networking website 'DARN' (Digital Arts Resource Network) was also constructed for this project, and an online journal ran for 3 issues following the Exchange 2000 conference which was related to this project.

Mnemosyne Dreams, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...on.htm?uri=pa-1045-1

Description:

Mnemosyne Dreams was a practice-as-research site-specific performance project that took place on the Victorian heritage ship SS Great Britain in Bristol Docks, England, April 4-7, 2002. It was a durational event that ran continuously for six hours on each of four days, offered as a free add-on attraction for visitors. It used three locations on the ship 'Promenade Deck, First Class Cabin, Ladies Boudoir' and drew on sources from the ship's voyages to Australia (1853-1875), including accounts by passengers 'particularly a 1866 honeymoon diary' as well as other historical materials, plus field-work interviews with their contemporary descendents in Australia. It investigated three main research areas: (a) the aesthetics and effects of small-scale spectacle, (b) actor-audience exchange in intimate settings, (c) memory processes in performance and contesting histories at heritage sites. The project included a reception study through conversations with four contrasting 'memory groups' 'heritage professionals, volunteer ship workers, 'lay' people from local communities, and random audience members' which had been audience members of the production. The DVD is an interactive performance document and investigative research resource designed to explore the four main research areas noted above. It is based on a daily two-hour, four-camera video shoot during the four days of presentation, plus over 60 hours audio recordings of audience feedback. The DVD structures this material on three levels. Level One provides a simultaneous multi-viewpoint three-screen record of one-hour of performance on day four. As this level plays, onscreen buttons appear sequentially indicating sections of the performance particularly relevant to the four main research areas. Clicking these buttons takes the user to Level Two, which contains four simultaneously viewed screens, each showing the same section of performance from each of the four days, with simultaneous sound. Buttons allow selection of sound from any of the four days, so performances between the four days can be compared in respect of particular research areas. Clicking on any of the four screens on Level Two takes the user to Level Three and a single, full-screen view of the section of performance for the day/screen selected so that it can be viewed in more detail. It also provides buttons for switching on and off of audio commentaries from the feedback sessions with audience members relevant to that particular section of performance with regard to the four research areas. The commentaries for the day one screen are from heritage professionals, for day two from 'lay' community members, for day three from random audience members, and for day four from ship volunteers. Hence the same section of performance from each of the four days can be interpreted and compared in light of these contrasting commentaries from the four 'memory groups'. From Levels Two and Three it is also possible to go back to previous levels by selecting level return buttons. Is part of - AHDS Performing Arts

Daiwa International Butoh Festival Archive, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...on.htm?uri=pa-1044-1

Description:

'Dancing in Murky Water' was a research project which aimed to make use of the opportunity afforded by the Daiwa International Butoh Festival in London in 2005 to create a unique and much needed archive on Butoh and to hold a symposium on Butoh while Japanese artists were in the UK. The curation of the festival and planning of the symposium discussions looked at Butoh's recent developments and its future directions. The research looked at Butoh's development both within Japan and Europe. There was an interdisciplinary focus, bringing western actors to the symposium who had worked with Butoh in some way in their work as actors in western theatre. The research aimed to bring artists and researchers, theory and practice into close connection, and to use a professional theatre space to host the kind of discussions that usually take place within a more closed academic context. The project aimed to promote dialogue and mutual understanding between Japanese and European artists and researchers and to involve audience in those dialogues. The archive of 5 DVDs that documents the 'Daiwa International Butoh Festival' (Jacksons Lane Theatre, London 2005, programmed by Frances Barbe) shows the work of Yumiko Yoshioka, Koichi Tamano and company, Tadashi Endo, Shinonome Butoh and Katsura Kan who collaborated with European dancers Nina Fog, Victoria Macarte and Gabriella Daris. Each performance is recorded in full, and some titles include additional valuable workshop and interview footage. Yumiko Yoshioka 'Before the Dawn': 2 Discs ' Performance, Post Show Discussion. Koichi Tamano 'My Soul Shaken by a Little God Dwelling in My Spirit': 1 Disc ' Performance. Tadashi Endo 'Ma': 4 Discs ' Performance, Workshops, Interview. Shinonome Butoh 'Do': 4 Discs ' Performance, Workshops, Interview. Katsura Kan 'Joker in the Forest' and 'Fragment of Adam': 2 Discs ' 2 Performances (Solo and Trio), Workshops and Interview. The festival of performances and workshops was funded by Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation and the Arts Council of England and the accompanying symposium 'Chasing the Body With Words' and the DVD archive was made possible by additional funding from AHRC and the University of Kent School of Drama, Film and Visual Art. The festival symposium 'Chasing the Body with Words' was chaired by Dick McCaw, with key notes speeches by Prof. Sondra Fraleigh (USA) and Ms Akiko Tachiki (Japan). Panel members included Frances Barbe, Lorna Marshall, Greg Hicks, Michael Brown and Stuart Lynch in conversation with festival artists. This archive was also made possible by the essential work of Peter Hulton, Arts Archives. The archive is available for purchase from University of Kent School of Drama, Film and Visual Art.

TV Times Digitisation Project, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://tvtip.bufvc.ac.uk/

Description:

CD ROMs containing pdf and tiff files displaying schedules of the London Edition of the TV Times for the period 1956 - 1985 in a version combining imaging and optical character recognition, with associated indexing. These are the results of a preliminary phase of the TV Times project which aims to create a database into which data about programmes referred to in the TV Times can be inserted and combined with genre classification. ROLE OF THE TV TIMES: Data from the schedules, times, dates, descriptions, lists of production staff and cast are an obvious starting point for any researcher. Schedules are the programme 'metadata', recording what has been broadcast even where programmes do not survive. They are now largely hidden from view because of the inaccessibility of the printed copies of the TV Times. Here again independent broadcasting has not been well served. The higher sounding ideal of public service encouraged public libraries to keep The Radio Times, establishing it as the schedule of record. As far as we are aware, only one print set of the TV Times in both Regional and London Editions survives at the British Library. Other sets survive in various forms in the BFI, in private collections and in the Manchester Public Library. The BUFVC has recently launched TRILT: Television and Radio Index for Learning and Teaching a schedules service for academic users based on Broadcasting Dataservices data feed. This is supplemented by their Television Index which includes some coverage from 1995 - . The aim of the TV Times Schedule Database is to complement TRILT and to make available historic schedule information to scholars over networks. Limited access to schedules makes some forms of research impracticable. Such as quantitative research into trends in programming and scheduling to complement other documentary sources and eyewitness accounts of decision making about programmes within the industry. Embedded in the schedules too are personal histories of presenters, and actors. The TV Times records briefly the more significant production staff such as directors and producers whose history is largely unwritten, but whose careers can be tracked through the schedules. The TV Times Schedules Database will record this information. The study of individual programmes and series is greatly aided by knowing what was broadcast. For example, how many episodes were shown of Dragnet, an early police drama? What time were they broadcast and on what date? What were the episode titles and who was in the cast, what was the weekly plot line? The schedules provide a natural framework on which to base programme research. Creating schedule databases is an established methodology (Chignell, Holland and McCain 2000) used by the BBC Radio 4 Analysis, This Week and World in Action projects. While the schedule data sets created by these projects are complex, designed to serve the needs of a specific project, electronic links between them over networks give a rich and extensible picture. Together with TRILT, there is a basis for a complete UK schedules resource. Careful management of the TV Times project resources should enable all these data sets to migrate to the BUFVC web site forming the core of a new Television and Radio Research Portal.

Performing Words, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...on.htm?uri=pa-1051-1

Description:

The focus of this project is on contemporary women's writing for performance, with the following aims and objectives: To understand what strategies are employed by women in their writing practices and to analyse such strategies for their contestation of gender representation. To engage academic-practitioners and practitioners in the consideration of women's writing for performance. To make women's writing practices available through residential workshops, symposia, print and electronic media. Research has taken the form of a regularly convened programme of practice-research events, led by practitioners with international standing in the field; who are familiar as 'subjects' of feminist performance research; and who have extensive experience of leading workshops on their writing practice/s. Events have welcomed participants with an interest in theatre, performance, writing and women's studies in the interests of a rich cross-fertilization of expertise and perspectives in relation to issues of gender and performance. Film Documentation of a four-day workshop with Gilly Adams and Geddy Aniksdal, Lancaster University, 29 March - 2 April 2004. This film provides an insight into the methods used in the Performing Words practice based research event run by Gilly Adams and Geddy Aniksdal. The workshop explores the connection between the language of the body and spoken language in drama, providing strategies for generating performance text out of physical action. The film follows the participants' progress as they move through the various stages of the workshop: warming up; introducing the framework; characters and physical scores; finding a voice; writing characters; structured improvisations; presentations. Gilly Adams is a director, workshop leader and dramatist who specialises in working with writers. She was the Artistic Director of the new writing company, Made in Wales, for more than a decade and is currently the director of BBC Wales' Writers' Unit and a radio drama producer. She is also an associate artist of the celebratory arts company Welfare State International. Geddy Aniksdal has been with Grenland Friteater, Norway's independent theatre company, since 1981 and has participated as an actor in all the theatre's main productions. She also works as a director and pedagogue and has given numerous workshops on actor training. She has toured her solo performance Blue is the Smoke of War internationally.

Le Pas d'Acier 1925, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...on.htm?uri=pa-1050-1

Description:

Le Pas d'Acier 1925 presents Princeton University's source based recreation of Sergei Prokofiev and Georgi Yakoulov's 'Soviet' machine age ballet, originally produced by Diaghilev's Bellets Russes in 1927. This 2-DVD set includes the ballet in performance with synopsis in English and Russian, a documentary on its sources and re-discovery and additional short presentations on re-sourcing the choreography with world renowned ballet recontructors Millicent Hodson and Kenneth Archer, and on Prokofiev's ballets of the 1920s. The latter contains the world premiere of an unpublished overture by Prokofiev from 1925, orchestrated for this project and performed by Princeton University Orchestra. Also included is an essay on the philosophical background to the ballet, and other textual materials. The re-staging of Pas d'Acier has been noted and reviewed internationally. This project to document, discuss and disseminate that staging, and the research and collaboration that went into it, will be of interest to anyone involved in the history of the performing arts, reconstruction, modernism in music, movement and scenic design, early Soviet history and culture or in the work of Prokofiev or Yakoulov. It also contributes to research on the impact of Russian contructivism, film and ideas of interactivity in performance during the 1920s. This digital resource contains a source-based recreation of a 'lost' Prokofiev ballet from the mid 1920s. Based on the research of British dance historian Lesley-Anne Sayers, the ballet was staged by Princeton University's dept of music and the programme in Theatre and Dance during 2005 with choreography by Millicent Hodson and Kenneth Archer. The contructivist resource also contains substantial documentary materials on the work at Princeton and on the sources of the research, with contributions from leading scholars in the field of music and dance.

Description:

The Sci-Art website was an outcome of the Sci-Art: Bio-robotic choreography project undertaken by Digital Research Unit (DRU) at the Nottingham Trent University in collaboration with the School of Cognitive and Computer Sciences (COGS) at the University of Sussex. It was supported by the Wellcome Trust and involved the development of an intelligent insect-like robot large enough to support a human. This subtle interplay within the partnership between human and robot bodies explored alternate kinds of choreography. The website documents the research and development aims of the Sci-Art: Bio-robotic choreography project, including images. The concept of the project was devised by international performance artist Stelarc who was also the performer/operator of the robotic structure. 'Hexapod' was the first prototype of what was to later develop into a robot called 'Anatomical Exoskeleton' and then into 'Muscle Machine'. This prototype explored solutions in relation to the mechanical structure of a walking machine under the leadership of robotics specialist Dr Inman Harvey (University of Sussex). Further details on 'Anatomical Exoskeleton' and 'Muscle Machine' can be found on the Anatomical Exoskeleton website which has also been deposited with AHDS. Is part of - AHDS Performing Arts

Stravinsky the Global Dancer: A Chronology of Choreography to the Music of Igor Stravinsky, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.roehampton.ac.uk/stravinsky/

Description:

Stravinsky was the most celebrated and probably most frequently used composer for dance of the twentieth century. The aim of this research project was to produce a chronological, annotated listing of dances/ballets set to his music in order to obtain a more complete, up-to-date picture of the role played by his music in dance. A secondary aim was to use it as a source for analysing trends in choice and manner of setting of Stravinsky's music for dance. A further aim was to establish the layout of the database in terms of fields and search facilities that would be useful as a model for other databases. 'Stravinsky the Global Dancer' is geared towards both music and dance scholars, enthusiasts and members of the profession and, though emphasising productions until 2003, it offers ongoing interactive opportunities. Its presence has encouraged numerous viewers to contribute further information. The database currently contains entries on 1,218 dances, by 682 choreographers, set to 99 compositions by Stravinsky. Dances are grouped under choreographer, score, company and country (in the form of short and long listings). Entries also cover partial usage of scores and uses of Stravinsky composition within collage musical constructions. Since the intensive period of the project was completed in December 2002, there has been no systematic collecting and recording of data on works premiered after that date, however the growth of the database continues very positively, on receipt of firm data evidence. Accompanying the database is an introduction to the project and a guide to its methodology. Is part of - AHDS Performing Arts

Foucault studies, University of Durham

URL: http://www.foucault-studies.com/index1.html

Description:

Foucault Studies is a peer reviewed electronic journal devoted to the work of French thinker, Michel Foucault. The journal is available online, and is free to anyone who wishes to use it. This bi-annual online publication aims to be a discussion forum that explores the impact not only of Foucault's widely-read work and but also his less well-known material (such as the 1994 publication in French of a four-volume collection of shorter writings and the publications of lectures). Abstracts for articles are provided, and all contributions to the journal are available as PDFs.

Scottish Traditions of Dance, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...on.htm?uri=pa-1046-1

Description:

The Scottish Traditions of Dance Trust (STDT) was established in 1995 with a remit to promote, conserve and research all traditions of dance in Scotland. The organisation's archive includes records generated by the Trust while fulfilling these aims through event organisation, event participation, educational outreach and oral history recording. A large part of the collection consists of oral history interviews, conducted throughout Scotland, on the subject of Scottish dance and music. These interviews, although primarily concerned with the collection of Scottish dance memories, also provide a fascinating insight into work and family life in 20th century Scotland. The archive also includes deposited material relating to Scottish traditions of dance and dance music in all its forms and as practised in any geographical location, including music manuscripts, dance instructions, photographs and dance ephemera. All analogue material is available to consult at the STDT's offices in Stirling. Is part of - AHDS Performing Arts

Embodying Ambiguities, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.embamb.com/

Description:

Between 2001 and 2004 Valerie Briginshaw and Emilyn Claid explored the relationship between choreographing performance and writing texts, as two forms of practice based research running in parallel with one another. This website draws together the processes and products that have provided the ongoing stimulus for the research including video excerpts from the performances; programme notes; film; written papers; workshop scores and studio processes. It focuses on No Bodies Baby (2002), the performance and writing project that makes up the central work of the research. Links are made to the earlier choreography Shiver Rococo(1999) and the following choreography Remember to Forget(2003) to demonstrate the ongoing lines of research and the importance of the layering of memory to the project. The project aims were to: 1. reveal and utilise, the contradictions and creative tensions that arise in the investigation of relations between choreography and writing; 2. explore, through written and choreographic practice, the different ways that shared knowledges of anti-dualism stimulate and shift the processes and performances of dancing and writing; 3. examine the ways in which thought moves between dancing and writing which involve memory, reflection, repetition and recognition; 4. produce danced and written texts that suggest new ways of understanding space and time to accommodate the complex mind/body plays of thought between words and movement; 5. reveal and write about the embodied philosophies inherent within the parallel processes of choreographic performance and writing. The website innovatively illuminates some of the practices engaged in during the course of the research. It reveals and gives insights into performance making process and products, alongside writing, and, through animating words within and around the movements and bodies of the performers, it foregrounds some of the complexities encountered between the danced and written texts produced.

Citywide: interactive experiences in the city using mobile mixed reality technologies, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...on.htm?uri=pa-1043-1

Description:

The Citywide performance project explores new kinds of artistic performance that take place on the streets of a city and simultaneously online. These performances take the form of games in which street players and online players compete and collaborate in order to try to establish an understanding of one another's environment and experience. The aim is to mix digital content with live action to create a compelling experience for both kinds of players. The project culminated in the construction of a number of highly visible mixed-reality experiences. Can You See Me Now? provided an opportunity to assess real and practical use of mobile technologies in a game that continues to tour to numerous cities. Uncle Roy All Around You highlighted the challenges of orchestrating a mixed-reality experience that places members of the public on the streets with mobile technology. The resource consists of a number of publications that describe the construction and deployment of a number of mobile mixed-reality experiences, and subsequent analysis and revisions. This is accompanied by video documentation of the experiences, and an application that allows a spectator to review a 3D recording of one of the experiences. Is part of - AHDS Performing Arts

Film as the New Shakespeare and Film on Shakespeare: Reversing the Shakespeare/Film Trajectory, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...on.htm?uri=pa-1062-1

Description:

The article is an offshoot of a larger project, a monograph entitled Literature on Screen: An Overview (Palgrave). Drawing on early writings on film adaptation, the article attempts to accounts for - The long neglect of film adaptation in literary and film studies - The reasons for Shakespeare as a source in early cinema - The growing confidence in representing Shakespeare on screen. This article considers the ultimately successful quest for film to be regarded as, not a mere imitator of literature, but the 'new literature', or as Allardyce Nicoll intimates in 1936, 'the new Shakespeare'. This seemingly persistent conception of film as the new Shakespeare accounts, in part, for long-standing prejudicial attitudes to literature on screen, including cinematic appropriations of Shakespeare, over the last two centuries.

The travelogue of the monk Xuanzang (600-664) recounts his journey via Central Asia to India from c.627-645 and preserves invaluable information on the society and religion of the polities he visited. Together with the records of Faxian (c.320-420) and Yijing (635-713), Xuanzang's travelogue is the most detailed description of ancient India and Central Asia we have. Samuel Beal's translation of the Datang xiyu ji by the monk Xuanzang, was one of the early important breakthroughs in Asian studies. His detailed annotations reflect the highest standard of 19th century scholarship and have served generations of researchers. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

Newcastle Electronic Corpus of Tyneside English (A Linguistic 'Time-Capsule': The Newcastle Electronic Corpus of Tyneside English), Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2494-1

Description:

The 1960's recordings were gathered by Vince McNeaney during the SSRC-funded 'Tyneside Linguistic Survey' (TLS) undertaken by Barbara Strang (Principal Investigator), John Pellowe and associates of Newcastle University. The corpus originally consisted of 86 loosely-structured 30-minute interviews recorded onto analog reel-to-reel tapes. Their informants were drawn from a stratified random sample of Gateshead in North-East England and were divided among various social class groupings. The TLS collected very detailed social data from its interviewees including lifestyle factors such as details of leisure activities, voting preferences, attitudes to education and parental discipline. The interviews covered a range of topics, and speakers were encouraged to talk about their life histories and their attitudes to the local dialect. At the end of the interview, they were asked whether they knew/used traditional dialect words and were also asked for native speaker judgements of constructions containing vernacular morphosyntax. The more recent of the two corpora was collected in the Tyneside area between 1991 and 1994 for the ESRC-funded 'Phonological Variation and Change in Contemporary Spoken English' (PVC) project (R000234892) undertaken by Gerard Docherty, James Milroy, Lesley Milroy (Principal Investigator) and associates of the University of Newcastle. The materials comprise 18 digital audio tapes, each of roughly 60 minutes' duration. Dyads of friends or relatives were encouraged to converse freely about a wide range of topics with minimal interference from the fieldworker (Penny Oxley), and informants were again equally divided between various social class groupings. The PVC project recorded much more minimal social data. The Newcastle Electronic Corpus of Tyneside English (NECTE) amalgamates these materials into a single XML-encoded corpus and makes them available in a variety of formats: digitized audio, standard orthographic transcription, phonetic transcription, and part-of-speech tagged.

Description:

Adolphe Appia, the Swiss theatrical practitioner who died in 1928, revolutionised attitudes to theatrical production and developed ideas that have been vital to the evolution of modern stage practice. Appia's imagination went far beyond his groundbreaking innovations in theatrical lighting to conceive fundamental reforms of scenic design, directing, and the use of space. His theories and practical investigations set an agenda for the development of theatre and its role in society which is still being explored and put into practice. This collection of images and virtual reality models provide vivid and varied demonstrations of his work and offer a key resource to researchers and students working in this area.

Split Britches, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

Description:

The film of the Split Britches workshop is an output of the Women's Writing for Performance Project, a three year research programme (2003-2006) funded by the AHRC and led by Professors Elaine Aston and Geraldine Harris of the Lancaster Institute for Contemporary Arts at Lancaster University. The project sought to understand what strategies are employed by women in their writing practices and to analyse such strategies for their contestation of gender representation, through regularly convened practice-research events. One aspect of the practice research events was a programme of workshops led by practitioners who were chosen for their international standing in the field and as 'subjects' of feminist performance research and their experience of leading workshops on their writing practice/s. Practitioners included Vayu Naidu, Jackie Kay, Jenny Élair, Bobby Baker, Curious, Anna Furse, Rebecca Prichard, Sarah Daniels and Marisa Carnesky. The workshops led by Geddy Aniksdal and Gilly Adams (Performing Words) and Lois Weaver and Peggy Shaw (Split Britches) were filmed. The subject content of this digital resource is film documentation of a four-day workshop with Lois Weaver and Peggy Shaw. The workshop was held in the Nuffield Theatre at Lancaster University between 12 - 15 January 2006. Lois and Peggy lead the participants through exercises and processes that they use in making work. The workshop is structured through a series of categories that summarise their approach: - Questions and Obsessions - Creative Truth - Surprise and Impulse - Fantasy and Layering The DVD also includes interviews with Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver about their experiences as female practitioners and their work together as Split Britches. Lois Weaver and Peggy Shaw are two of the co-founders of Split Britches, a Lesbian Feminist Theatre Company that since 1981 has edified and wildly entertained everyone with their vaudevillian satirical gender-bending performances.

A Corpus of English Dialogues 1560-1760 (CED), Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2507-1

Description:

The Corpus of English Dialogues comprises dialogues from 1560 to 1760. Dialogues are of prime interest to the study of the development of English because interactive face-to-face communication has been found to play an important role in language change. To give a picture of spoken interaction of the past, as mediated through written records, the CED contains 1.2 million million words drawn from both texts which include constructed dialogue and those which purportedly record language from authentic speech situations; of the 1.2 million words, some 870,000 words comprise direct speech.There are five text-types in the CED. The text-types representative of constructed dialogue are drama comedy, didactic works (language manuals and other handbooks) and fiction; the text-types representative of authentic dialogue are trial proceedings and witness depositions. In addition, a small group of miscellaneous dialogic texts is included in the collection.The corpus texts have been coded to indicate e.g. foreign language, narration, compilers' comments, editorial comments and emendations, and font changes. Each corpus text is introduced by a number of parameters giving information on the period in question, text-type, name of the text, name of the author (when applicable), and contemporaneity of the source text and the printed version used.The CED comprises 177 text files and is distributed in plain text file, XML, and WordCruncher formats. A guide (a .pdf file) to the corpus accompanies the corpus files and is also available in hard copy. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

Description:

The Electronic Text Corpus of Sumerian Literature (ETCSL) comprises transliterations and English translations of 394 compositions attested on sources dating to the period from approximately 2100 to 1700 BCE. The compositions are divided into seven categories: ancient literary catalogues; narrative compositions; royal praise poetry and hymns to deities on behalf of rulers; literary letters and letter-prayers; divine and temple hymns; proverbs and proverb collections; and a more general category including compositions such as debates, dialogues and riddles. The numbering of the compositions within the corpus follows Miguel Civil's unpublished catalogue of Sumerian literature (etcslfullcat.html).Files with an initial c are composite transliterations (a reconstructed text editorially assembled from the extant exemplars but including substantive variants) in which the cuneiform signs are represented in the Roman alphabet. Files with an initial t are translations. The composite files include full references for the cuneiform sources and author-date references for the secondary sources (detailed in bibliography.xml). The composite and translation files are in XML and have been annotated according to the TEI guidelines. In terms of linguistic information, each word form in the composite transliterations has been assigned to a lexeme which is specified by a citation form, word class information and basic English translation.

Description:

The Giessen - Long Beach Chaplin Corpus (GLBCC) consists of transcribed interactions between native English speakers, ESL and EFL speakers. Pairs of students, in California (for English as native and second language) and in Giessen (for English as foreign language), participated in the experiment in which they were asked to watch the first part of a silent Charlie Chaplin movie. One participant (speaker A) was then asked to retell in a monologue what he or she had seen so far, while the other participant (speaker B) watched the rest of the movie and told his or her partner the second part of the movie (dialogue). Finally the two participants discussed several aspects of the movie on the basis of a few written prompts. 108 Sessions are recorded involving 191 speakers (in some cases only one speaker participated in a session and retold the entire movie in a monologue - C-speaker). There are 83 A-speakers, 90 B-speakers (in the first 7 recordings in California the A-roles were not recorded). Altogether, the corpus comprises 35 American, 4 British, and 2 Australian native speakers. 77 Non-native speakers are Germans, the others have a variety of linguistic backgrounds, including Hispanic, Japanese and Korean. The transcripts average 2472 words each. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2521-1

Description:

The text contains links to Kant's footnotes, together with links to some additional footnotes provided by the translator. There are also occasional references to two earlier translators of Kant's text: Stanley L. Jaki and William Hastie. The translator of the present text would like to acknowledge the great help he has received from these two earlier translations.The original lines from Alexander Pope and Addison are used in those places where Kant quotes from the German translations of these English poets.The major purpose of this translation is to provide undergraduates a readily accessible version of Kant's work in a modern idiom. Hastie's translation, although very fluent, is seriously incomplete and in places suffers from a curious choice of words; and there are some odd errors of terminology. Jaki's translation is scrupulously faithful to Kant's text, but is doggedly literal and thus, in many places, very difficult to read, especially since it contains many denoted editorial insertions. These two translations clearly reflect the very different attitudes of the translators to Kant's work: Hastie is an enthusiastic apologist for Kant's scientific genius; Jaki, by contrast, believes the scientific value of Kant's work here has been seriously exaggerated (to say the least). I take no stand on this issue (which I am ill equipped to judge), and I refer anyone interested in the debate to consult Jaki's excellent introduction and detailed commentary on Kant's text. His remarks on Kant's theory in context are (for me) extremely persuasive. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

Discourse context and the processing of contrastive focus in silent reading (datafiles), Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2516-1

Description:

Words such as 'only' and 'even' indicate that a contrast is to be made between information that is given in a sentence and some alternatives. For example, a sentence such as 'Only Mary kissed John'? means that Mary kissed John but no-one else did. However, sentences that contain these words often have more than one possible meaning, depending on which part of the sentence is used to form the contrast. We conducted three experiments in which we analysed eye movements during reading to investigate skilled readers' understanding of sentences containing 'only'. The results demonstrated that skilled readers make rapid use of grammatical and contextual knowledge to select the appropriate meaning of a sentence, but that grammatical knowledge has the more important role. Although these findings are directly informative about skilled reading, they may also provide insights into problems that might be encountered by beginning readers or people with reading difficulty.

Gidian Archives (Gide Press Archive), Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2509-1

Description:

Gidian Archives is a database created from the press cuttings preserved by André Gide in his personal collection. The archive consists of articles published during his life on the author's work, his person and his influence on the society and culture of his age. It is well known that the 'key contemporary', as Gide was called, represents an essential reference point for several generations of intellectuals. Thus the articles in Gidian Archives provide crucial evidence on the history of thought across half a century. In addition to press cuttings tracing the critical reception of each of Gide's works, the archives contain polemical articles on his cultural interventions, on his political commitments and on matters of contemporary concern. Through what his professional readers say about Gide it is possible to follow the careers of other writers who declared and defined their own thought in dialogue with his. Similarly, the evolution of periodicals which published texts on Gide can be traced by means of this key research tool. The interest of the collection extends well beyond Gide studies. The archive is rich in information on numerous aspects of the history of literature, society, culture, politics, ideology, etc., in the first half of the twentieth century. The Search Engine makes it possible to find articles on a given theme ('mots clefs') or an individual ('noms propes'). One can track down all the articles by a particular writer ('auteur') or published in a specific review ('Titre de la revue'). Similarly, items can be selected by date.

Early Stuart Libels: An Edition of Poetry from Manuscript Sources, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2492-1

Description:

In the early seventeenth century, libels were recognised as unauthorised and controversial texts, generally in poetic form, on a person or topical issue. Under the prevailing conditions of censorship, yet through decades in which English men and women became increasingly concerned about the state of their union, libels provided a forum at once for scurrilous and genuinely subversive discourse. For modern scholars of the period, they highlight the vital interaction between literary and political cultures in this era. 'Early Stuart Libels' publishes 350 libels, roughly 200 of which have never before been published. The poems are drawn from manuscript sources, held by libraries and record sources in the US, UK and the Republic of Ireland. The two co-editors of the edition had gathered texts of libels in the course of their parallel research projects, spanning roughly ten years. The aim of the edition, therefore, was to bring this material into the public domain, in a manner that combined scholarly values with the goal of wide dissemination.

Civilised Britain 43AD : prior to the Roman 'invasion', Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2421-1

Description:

This is a treatise on the identity of Britain during the years 55BC to 43AD and argues that the region south-east of the Jurassic Ridgeway rapidly became a client state of Rome after the departure of Julius Caesar. Although there were periods of internecine warfare amongst the individual tribes where various warlords held sway, by the time of Cunobelinus a client state relationship was well in hand which made it logical for the dispossessed son of Cunobelinus to seek aid after his father's death. Thus Aulus Plautius led only a small force to quell what was in fact a small rebellion. The fact that Claudius used the occasion to bolster his claim to the Empire was a completely separate issue.

Description:

This text seeks to explore Book IV of Horace's Odes not as isolated works of adulatory verse, but as a collection of subliminal vignettes on Roman society in the early days of the Principate. That they were written as individual items over a period of time, ranging from 13 BC. to 8 BC., is not disputed. That they were really intended by Horace as a complete entity in their own right is the primary argument of this work and is supported by a full translation, commentary and analysis of the Latin text in which the order of the odes has been reconstituted.

Sheffield Corpus of Chinese, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2481-1

Description:

The rudimentary form of the Sheffield Corpus of Chinese contains a limited body of representative texts from Medieval (MedC) and Modern Chinese (ModC) periods. They are of two text types: literary and non-literary. The MedC text 'Zhuzi Yulei' (ZZYL, Classified conversations of Master Zhu) by Zhu Xi (12th century) is a genre in its own right that is characteristic of sermons and dialogues in the vernacular and represents the Master's actual speech as recorded by his disciples. Texts like these are regarded as a reflection of planned monologue style that represents, if not truly natural speech, some of the most 'spoken-like' registers available from earlier historical periods (Biber et al 1998). the other two texts are ModC novels. The text 'Shuihu Zhuan' (SHZ, Tales of the Water Margin) is one of four most famous novels of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) that is recorded in a colloquial style compounded with oral conventions like descriptive passages in prose narrative (Hanan 1981). it is a very useful text for historical study of the Ming time. The other text 'Rulin Waishi' (RLWS, The Scholars) is one of the four great novels of the Quing Dynasty (1644-1911). Unlike SHZ, it avoided using standard poetic vocabulary, dialectical and slang terms and used classical terms only in the speeches of scholars. It is regarded as a landmark of Chinese literature for its conscious use of 'Guoyu' or a national vernacular (Hanan 1981). It is a very useful source for linguistic study of the Chinese language in the early Qing time. From each of the three texts, a chapter is selected and used in the SCC.

Discourse on the Origin and the Foundations of Inequality Among Men (Discours sur l'origine et les fondements de l'inégalité parmi les hommes. English), Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2524-1

Description:

Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778), the famous French philosopher and writer, prepared his Discourse on Inequality (also called the Second Discourse) as an entry in a competition organized by the Academy of Dijon in 1754. He had won first prize in a previous competition (in 1750) with his Discourse on the Sciences and the Arts (the First Discourse), a victory which had helped to make him famous. The Second Discourse did not fare so well in the contest. When the Second Discourse was published again in 1782, Rousseau inserted a few short minor additions into the text. These are included here but are not indicated. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

Cognition, Biology and Idealist Philosophy, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2520-1

Description:

The basic philosophy of mainstream biology, the philosophy of materialist realism, assumes the existence of a material world independent of human observation and cognition. The scientific study of cognition in the context of biology has, however, led to the result, that all our thoughts and cognitions, including the assumption of a material world, are dependent on our cognitive apparatus in its present stage of evolution. I think this shows a contradiction within materialist philosophy, and I therefore find it is impossible to make a contradiction free account of cognition based on this philosophy. An account of natural science, biological evolution, and cognition based on an idealist philosophy is offered, and it is argued, that this account is free of contradictions. In the idealist philosophy 'material objects' are regarded as concepts based on sensory experiences. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

Correspondences: Jewish Mysticism, Indian Philosophies, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

Description:

The authors found correspondence of several significant traits of Jewish mysticism with traits of Buddhism and other systems of Indian religion and philosophy in the literature. Among the corresponding traits is the fundamental idea of emptiness or nothingness, shuunyataa in Sanskrit, ayin in Hebrew. Also corresponding are attempts to harmonise the idea and experience of emptiness with fullness, and with the experience of the secular world with its many things and concepts. They list eight significant traits of Jewish mysticism, which are found to correspond with traits of Indian religion-philosophies. This is of course a study in comparative religion, but some important relations between these Indian and Jewish belief systems with modern science are also discussed.

The Frogs, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2498-1

Description:

At the time of the production of this play, Athens and her allies have been at war with Sparta and her allies (from 431-404 BC with some brief interludes). Things have not gone so well for Athens. Indeed, in 411 there was a brief oligarchic coup. And in 404, just a year after this play was produced, Sparta will support a second coup by another oligarchic group called the Thirty, thus bringing the war to an ill end for the Athenians. Aristophanes has Dionysos seeking a way to restore Athens to her former glory through a revival of tragedy. After the deaths of Euripides in 405 BC and Sophocles immediately after, the future of tragedy seemed dark. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

The Clouds, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2497-1

Description:

The Clouds was first produced in the drama festival in Athens-the City Dionysia-in 423 BC, where it placed third. Subsequently the play was revised, but the revisions were never completed. The text which survives is the revised version, which was apparently not performed in Aristophanes' time but which circulated in manuscript form. This revised version does contain some anomalies which have not been fully sorted out (e.g., the treatment of Cleon, who died between the original text and the revisions). At the time of the first production, the Athenians had been at war with the Spartans, off and on, for a number of years. Is part of - Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Collections

Heinrich von Mügeln, Der Tum, Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS)

URL: http://www.ahds.ac.u...n.htm?uri=lll-2484-1

Description:

'Der Tum' is a German poem dedicated to the virgin Mary, composed by Heinrich von Mügeln in the mid of the 14th century. Containing allegorical and typological images for the incarnation of Christ, it is written in an elaborated rhetorical style ('geblümter Stil') that follows Latin models. The 72 strophes correspond to the medieval conception of the 72 languages of mankind. Besides the general mariological topic the poem deals with contemporaneous questions of poetology and language theory: how can the mystery of the incarnation be expressed by human language?
