Tale of the Trader and the Jinni - 1001 Nights Critical Apparatus

For my final project, I am going to be working with the collection of stories known as 1001 Nights, also known as Arabian Nights. I will be working closely with the tale told on the first night in the collection. This tale is known as the “Tale of the Trader and the Jinni.” Within this tale are the stories of a first, second and third Shaykh, respectively. I decided to work with this tale because the beginning seems to be as good of a place to start as any and also because of the wide variety of content within the tale, particularly including the unique style of Arabic poetry.

A Canonization of Digital Humanities Through John Donne

Well, my project is called “The Canonization of Digital Humanities Through John Donne.” What t the heck is that, you ask? To be honest, I’m not really sure. In my critical reading class we looked at John Donne’s famous poem, “The Canonization,” and since then I’ve begun thinking that this would be a great project for the humanities. The pun basically means that digital humanities will be respected as much of the creation of the saints in the Church, and also refers, of course, to John Donne’s work. Cool eh?

Cliques in Politics and Campaign Donations

Cliques in Politics and Campaign Donations

My project will attempt to do a social mapping of Senators and Congressmen/women who frequently work together to write or sponsor bills and what issues in particular they tend to address. I would also like to map out the top campaign donors for each bill based on publicly available information about the Politicians who attach their names to the legislation.

Congress has it's own DTD standard that I will use to access the House Bills available here:

Finding the Difference in Innocence and Experience - Formal Project Proposal

Participants:
Eva Jiang, Charlie Mietzner, and William Blake (from beyond the grave)

Text:
William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Experience

Research Question:
Songs of Innocence and Experience is a two-part compilation of poems that represents the two sides of human growth. Like the title suggests, Innocence embodies the youth and pastoral nature of childhood while Experience highlights the corruption and disillusionment of adulthood. So tentatively, we hope to chronicle this dichotomy in Blake’s poems through an examination of its rhyme scheme patterns and word choice.

My Immortal - What defines a troll?

Formal project proposal
Computational Methods in the Humanities
“My Immortal”
25. September 2011

Participants:
Janis Chinn, Jacob Deitloff, Eric Gratta

Text:
The term "trolling" in regard to the internet (as opposed to fishing) refers to the act of intentionally provoking emotions in people by baiting the text with rude, inappropriate, or otherwise outrageous suggestions. A famous example of a troll is “My Immortal”, a fan-fiction loosely based on the popular Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.

What's black and white and read all over? Newspapers. In BCS.

Our research project will hopefully give way to an analysis that blends sociolinguistics and political science. Our preliminary research question is to examine the usage of certain marked features in Serbian and Croatian newspapers and how this usage is related to the political ideology or leanings of the publication.

Headaches, swears, and grammar lessons

Tara Gillespie has trolled us a big one. How do you rationalize something made entirely irrational? That's where the headaches, swears, and grammar lessons come in to play.
