Hello! My name is Ethan Reed. I’m a second-year PhD candidate in UVa’s Department of English, and one of the Student Assistants in the Makerspace at the Scholars’ Lab. For me, maker technology represents a powerful opportunity to change the ways we teach and the ways think. This may seem obvious, but for me the…. Continue reading “Come explore the Makerspace!”.
[Cross-posted from dclure.org] Open the Exhibit Yesterday I made the hop across the country to Boston for the NEH Workshop on Digital Methods for Military History at Northeastern University, where I’ll be giving a couple of workshops about Neatline and soaking up lots of interesting new projects from old friends and new friends alike. Beautiful…. Continue reading “Minard + Napoleon + Neatline”.
Bonjour, Laboratoire des Savants! Hello! I’m Julia, one of the new Makerspace student consultants. When I’m not being a smiling face at the SLab desk, I am a first year M.A.-Ph.D. student in French. I am brand-new to Charlottesville and to UVa, and so far I’m loving everything, particularly this miniature Tour Eiffel, which was…. Continue reading “Bonjour! Je m’appelle Julia.”.
So I had to take a sick day yesterday. Stuffy nose, scratchy throat, headache, grouchiness. Attempting to brighten my day, Wayne sent me a nice text message: Turns out he was joking. He actually said “totally” when I asked, but that turned out to be a lie. Today, here’s what I came back to: So…. Continue reading “What. The. Junk.”.
One of my first projects here at the Scholars’ Lab was to help update some Omeka/Neatline sites. These are sites we keep around as examples of our Neatline plugin for Omeka, and they were a few versions behind. While a pretty easy process to do by hand, having a script to take care of it makes….

I feel really fortunate that I have the chance to hang out with…. Continue reading “Visualizing Early America through MapScholar and Beyond”.
The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing. Greetings! I am Swati Chawla, a second year PhD student at the department of history. The question, “Can the masters’ tools dismantle the masters’ house?” posed at a dhpoco talk last year resonated with my work on Tibetan exile in India, and was the reason I applied for the Praxis….

Hey everyone! My name is Steven Lewis. I’m a second-year Ph.D. candidate in Music. My research interests include late 20th century jazz neoclassicism, early jazz, and 19th century African-American secular music. In my most recent project, I explored jazz performance as a means of constructing counternarratives of black American music history. I earned a BA….

Cross-posted on my personal site. I have been touting the use of Prism in the university classroom for some time now, but a recent exchange with Annie Swafford suggested to me that it might be worth explicitly outlining how I would go about doing so. With that in mind, I’ve composed the following set of questions…. Continue reading “Prism in the Classroom: Questions to Frame Discussion”.
Hi. I’m Andrew Ferguson. Three years ago, while fighting my way through English Lit exam lists full of doorstop novels and deep-end theory, I decompressed with a hobby that seemed as far from literary scholarship as could be: watching other people play videogames online, in archived or livestreamed forms called Let’s Plays, or LPs. And,…. Continue reading “Let’s Play”.
