MITH Digital Dialogue: Bethany Nowviskie and David McClure, "Space, Time, and the Problem of Scale: Digital Storytelling with Neatline"

Description:
What do you get when you cross archives and artifacts with timelines, modern and historical maps, and an appreciation for the interpretive aims of humanities scholarship? With the support of the National Endowment for the Humanties and the Library of Congress, the Scholars Lab at UVa Library designed Neatline as a set of plugins for Omeka, which provides a powerful, open-source platform for content management and web publication. Project director Bethany Nowviskie will frame a discussion of opportunities for Neatline-based scholarship in terms of problems of scale: the decision to focus on "hand-crafted visualization" and "small data" (rather than on large-scale, algorithmic placement of information on maps and timelines); and the shift in software development plans from the creation of a stand-alone tool to a modular approach. Lead developer David McClure will share exhibits he has developed and offer a demo. {Will appear in FYI on Nov 5, 2012
