DH Open Office Hours - Project Showcase - Romantic Cartographies, Asko Nivala

 

Asko Nivala a visiting scholar at the NULab for Texts, Maps and Networks, will present his project, Romantic Cartographies: Lived and Imagined Space in English and German Romantic Texts, 1790-1840

His project analyzes the “spatiality of Romantic texts by reconstructing geographic maps they implied.” The goals of the project include building a database of place names from these texts which can be used for spatial visualization and continued research by future scholars.  Attendees will learn about the project and Nivala’s research on the spatial networks of important places within Romantic texts. 

DH Open Office Hours are a great way for beginning and experienced researchers to share knowledge about how to use different tools, or to turn an idea into a solid project. We’ll also share current and completed projects, as well as our experiences with many different facets of the DH world. There will also be informal talk sessions with visiting digital scholars. This is a great opportunity to meet other students and faculty who are interested in DH and see what they’re up to. Feel free to bring your lunch!

DH Open Office Hours are held every Wednesday from 12:00 - 1:00 PM in the Digital Scholarship Commons Media Lounge, located on the second floor of Snell Library (take a right out of the stairwell, head through the glass double doors, and take an immediate left toward the orange couches).
