Subject: Iian Neil on Codex and Emily Pugh on the Getty and Digital Art History: Two Sydney Digital Humanities Research Group events in October Dear All, I am writing to inform you about our two upcoming seminars. Please add these dates to your calendars: I hope to see you there. All the best, Francesco Borghesi --------------------------------------------------- Date: Friday, the 18th of October 2019 Time: 10-11am Venue: Kevin Lee Room, Quadrangle, The University of Sydney The Sydney Digital Humanities Research Group and the Medieval and Early Modern Centre are pleased to introduce: Iian Neil The Codex: Building a Graph of History The Codex is a web-based digital humanities project that attempts to achieve the deep integration of text and data. Standoff properties are used to mediate between the plain text stream and entities modelled in a Neo4j graph database. It uses a dynamic standoff property text editor to enable real-time changes to text and annotations without invalidating standoff property indexes. Annotations map back to text at the character level and can be overlapped without constraint. The ability to overlap (and comment) annotations offers a system for exploring the multidimensional affordances of text-as-a-graph in a practical editing environment. This talk proposes to look at the way Codex has been used to model such corpora as the 1913 Carden English translation of Michelangelo's letters and the 1927 Rosen Jervis translation of Luca Landucci's "A Florentine Diary". Iian Neill is a graduate of the University of Queensland in Art History and English Literature, and a Visiting Researcher at the Digital Academy of the University of Mainz. One of the founders of the Art Renewal Center (ARC), an American fine arts education non-profit, he also is the technical lead at the same institution. He developed Codex out of an interest in the graph database modelling of historical events. Since the addition of a custom standoff property text editor, the focus of Codex has become towards a generalised text-as-a-graph solution. -------------------------------------------------- Date: Friday, the 25^th of October 2019 Time: 3-4:30pm Venue: Kevin Lee Room, Quadrangle, The University of Sydney The Sydney Digital Humanities Research Group and the Power Institute Foundation for Art and Visual Culture are pleased to introduce: Emily Pugh, The Getty Research Institute Images of Technology, Technologies of Imaging: Digital Art History at the Getty Research Institute How has photography shaped art history? How are digital images continuing to shape the discipline even now? Emily Pugh, Principal Research Specialist and head of the Digital Art History department at the Getty Research Institute, will provide an overview of the ways the GRI's DAH team is exploring the relationships between imaging technologies and art-historical research and scholarship as part of two DAH projects in particular: PhotoTech (https://protect- au.mimecast.com/s/epC2Ck8vAZtlB8N6I2nUt7?domain=getty.edu), which uses emerging technologies such as computer vision and machine learning to discover new research possibilities within the GRI's Photo Archive, and Ed Ruscha, Streets of Los Angeles (https://protect- au.mimecast.com/s/MwWLClxwB5CGE075T9wAQG?domain=getty.edu), an effort to digitize and make accessible 130,000 images of LA streets from an archive Ruscha began compiling in 1965. She will also discuss her own research into the use of 3D imaging of architecture and architectural models. Emily Pugh is the Digital Humanities Specialist at the Getty Research Institute, where she oversees the scholarly components of GRI digital art history projects, such as the Getty Provenance Index Remodeling project and the Harald Szeemann Digital Seminar. Prior to her time at the GRI, she served as the first Robert H. Smith Postdoctoral Research Associate, with special responsibilities for digital humanities projects, at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts. She has several years of experience with digital publication in particular, having served from 2001 to 2013 as the lead web developer for the online peer-reviewed journal Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide. She was also the lead developer for NCAW's "Digital Humanities and Art History" series and co-authored a report on this series, which was published in the journal in Spring 2016. Emily received her PhD in Art History from the CUNY Graduate Center in 2008, where her studies focused on modern and contemporary architectural history. She is the author of Architecture, Politics, & Identity in Divided Berlin (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2014), and her essays on the Cold War urban built environment have appeared in the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, Centropa, and Space and Culture.
