Deterritorialization of Scholarship In The Digital Era

Posted by on Jun 9, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping

[Submitted by Adam Foster] If one is to mobilize this critical attitude seen in Foucault’s work in order to go beyond mere criticism to the realm of creating something positive (either out of new ideas or by transforming the old), they must go beyond Foucault and consider Deleuze and Guattari’s concepts of deterritorialization and reterritorialization.

Foucault’s Critical Attitude As A Means of Reimagining The Digital Humanities

Posted by on May 6, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping

[Submitted by Adam Foster] Setting out with the task of creating a model-less Digital Humanities – that is, one that evades strict restrictions on what actions the user is able to undertake in the vein of Jacques Ranciere’s politics of the police state – one should not begin with a set goal in mind, but […]

The Digital Humanities: An Accidental Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

Posted by on Mar 26, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping

[Submitted by Adam Foster] Past blogs[1] I’ve written have argued there is an inherent politics to academia. Drawing on Gilles Deleuze’s notion of State philosophy – that is to say, a philosophy that renders the thinker“a strictly dependent organ with an autonomy that is only imagined yet is sufficient to divest those whose job it […]

The Political Aesthetics of Digital Humanities Environments

Posted by on Feb 17, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping

[Submitted by Adam Foster]             My previous blog for INKE (See “Policing The State of Scholarship” [1]) conceived of scholarship and academia as being akin to a state, with strict laws, rules, regulations and norms akin to modern civilization; only certain things are allowed, and one must adhere to the rules of society. To elect […]

The Predicament of Coded Language

Posted by on Feb 12, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping, Projects

[submitted by Marc Muschler] Over the course of the last several weeks I have attempted to code a modular adapter for NewRadial.

[submitted by Adam Foster] One of the most progressive aspects of studying humanities in the digital era is that the potential for complete access to all scholarship exists. Ventures such as Worldcat and Zotero seek to catalogue the entirety of scholarly manuscripts and articles, and make them accessible to any scholar. This seems like a […]

[submitted by Marc Muschler] INKE’s ongoing investigation into the digitization of scholarly material has led to some interesting conclusions regarding the nature of scholarship and its future within electronic environments. This is particularly pertinent in relation to programs like NewRadial, which facilitates the visualization of this data in an electronic format. Roger Schonfeld recently released […]

Topography and/(or) Narrative in The Work of Scholarship

Posted by on Dec 13, 2013 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping

[Submitted by Adam Foster] As a researcher for INKE’s Modelling and Prototyping division, a great deal of what has guided my work has been a critical attitude towards the idea of narrative in scholarship. But why be critical of narrative? Before that question can be answered, it is important to be clear what narrative means […]
