Council on Academic Computing
April 22, 2010
Computer-Based Humanities Scholarship
The Office of the Provost currently is exploring how to incorporate computer-based analysis into humanities scholarship. Towards this end, Dr. Klinzing invited Alison Stones, Professor in the Department of History of Art and Architecture, to speak before the Council. Dr. Stones uses computing approaches in her studies of illuminated manuscripts. She has collaborated with the University's Digital Resource Library (DRL) to create publicly accessible searchable databases of images of medieval art and architecture, which are interlinked through keyword access to her website. Dr. Stones’ completed DRL-medart projects offer images of the architecture and sculpture of the Benedictine Abbey of Vézelay and the architecture, sculpture, and stained glass of the Cathedral of Chartres.
