I'd now like to highlight some of the fantastic projects under the @newbook_project umbrella! @nelcuw @ds_uw @SvobodaDiaries @ebadiary @SimpsonCenter @UWArtSci #dayofdh2020
The Joseph Mathia #SvobodaDiaries project is the multi-media publication of available diaries remaining from a collection kept by Baghdad resident J. M. Svoboda, from 1862 to 1908. @SvobodaDiaries
#interns have recently redeveloped the project website where you can view and download the diary material svobodadiariesproject.org @SvobodaDiaries
The viewer enables readers to read side-by-side #transcriptions of #arabic and English @SvobodaDiaries
Next in @newbook_project's stable: The Baki Project, a #collaborative international project addressing some of the problems of dealing with large and complex #manuscript traditions in #nonLatin scripts. #Ottoman thebakiproject.org/main/
#Goals include developing #digitaltools to identify and #visualize the history and evolution of a large manuscript tradition, and to model and test the tools by creating an exemplary #digitaledition of the famous #Ottoman poet, #Baki
We worked with @UW_iSchool students to develop a 'reversible transcription tool' that is called Scribe/Katib, eliminating the gap between the #Arabic script original and the Latin letter transcription by associating every Latin letter directly with an Arabic script equivalent.
The result is a Latin letter transcription that produces, from the same source, a digital transcription in the Arabic script. Here are the awesome #superhero @UW_iSchool #capstone students who developed this tool! #opensource code and documentation here: github.com/Baki-Projesi
I'll finish by mentioning the #OpenOttoman project I've worked on as a #DH advisor and #webdeveloper: an evolving web portal for scholarship and #publichistory focused on the #Ottoman world openottoman.org
I'm grateful to @nelcuw for providing webspace for #NELCDigital to showcase the #DH work going on in the department. Next thread: my own @ebadiary research #Egyptology #archaeology #dayofdh2020
