On the same topic as my post on the availability of our new R package
veccompare, Heather Wacha and I presented work examining overlap between eight medieval mappamundi ("world maps") over this past weekend at Book History and Digital Humanities: A conference at the Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture. From the conference's website:
Often celebrated and criticized as the next big thing in humanist research and teaching, “the digital humanities” get a lot of press for shaking up the way things are done. But is “dh” a continuation of some of the most “traditional” scholarly work in the humanities: bibliography, textual criticism, and book history? This conference, convened by the Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, aims to study how digital humanities grows out book history, how “bh” and “dh” continue to be mutually informative and generative, and how they also contradict each other.
