On Integrating Network and Narrative Approaches in Scholarly Work

Posted by on Feb 11, 2015 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping, Projects

[Submitted by Amy Robinson] Recently I have been thinking a lot about how to make my collections in NewRadial visually meaningful. Since beginning to think about how NewRadial and other Digital Humanities tools could be useful in the classroom, I have been curious as to what degree a collection assembled in NewRadial can communicate an […]

Digital Humanities Pedagogy: Encouraging Critical Analysis of Digital Technology in the Classroom

Posted by on Jan 15, 2015 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping, Projects

[Submitted by Amy Robinson] As part of my research for NewRadial I map and annotate ideas for papers and projects which I am currently working on in school. As a T.A. I have also found it a useful tool for putting together class material and preparing the ideas I want to talk about with the […]

The Text Model: Working with Digitally Enabled Models of Texts in NewRadial

Posted by on Dec 15, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping, Projects

[Submitted by Amy Robinson] In my last blog I suggested that the format which a text takes within the NewRadial interface (a collection of nodes which the user can draw edges between to connote relationship) is actually a model of the text rather than simply a re-presentation of the same object in book or even […]

The Fault’s Not in our Stars

Posted by on Nov 14, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping, Projects

[Submitted by Colin Bowers] This is the question I wish to explore in the following remarks: do traditional grammars and frames change of their own accord through the collision with new materialities, new cultural dominants, and new forms of technology? Hegel contended that the owl of Minerva only took flight at night, and similarly, Mark […]

Negotiating Modularity

Posted by on Nov 14, 2014 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping, Projects

[Submitted by Colin Bowers] New Knowledge environments, such as New Radial, are better models of how research in the humanities and social sciences actually happens; it is process-based and not (only) results-driven.  In some ways, I believe that our research has been that way for a very long time and that what NKE’s offer us […]

Mapping and Non-Reductive Critical Practices

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

[Submitted by Amy Robinson]   One of the initial questions which interested me in my early experiences with NewRadial was whether such a radical alteration research practices and argument development would produce a different approach to literary critical practice and interpretation. Given that the approach that we take in research and the development of critical […]

INKE Modeling & Prototyping researcher Jon Saklofske recently presented a paper at the NASSR (North American Society for the Study of Romanticism) in Washington DC called: “Digital doors of perception: Illuminating Blake through new knowledge environments.”  The paper discussed ways in which tools like NewRadial draw inspiration from William Blake’s inventive and “tinkering” kinds of […]

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 […]
