A huge thanks to everyone who participated and helped organize this year’s DHCS colloquium and helped to make it a successful event. 

In a day or two we’ll be sending out notes to our paper and poster presenters asking them to prepare their materials for inclusion in the online DHCS Colloquium Proceedings. Until then, please check out the live blog archives to find references to sites, papers etc. mentioned during the paper and keynote presentations.

See you next year at the Illinois Institute of Technology!

We closed our online registration late yesterday afternoon. 129 people have registered for the colloquium plus a handful more via email. We’ll have to stop accepting registrants when we reach 150. Thus far, 62 people have indicated that they will be attending the Saturday pre-colloquium. 116 have signed up for the Sunday sessions and 119 for Monday. About 70 people will be attending the Sunday banquet and keynote.

Out of all registrants, just over 50% are either faculty or students. IT and library/press staff make up about 20% each and the remaining 10% are from funding agencies, individual consultants and industry.

James Coltrain
Ph.D. candidate
History
Northwestern University

Fields of Interest: Imaging/Visualization, Libraries/Digital Archives, Modelling/Simulations

James Coltrain is a doctoral candidate in Early American History at Northwestern University. His academic interests include using studies of material and visual culture to address questions of social and cultural history. He is currently writing a dissertation on the architecture and society of the fortified imperial communities of 18th-century North America. He is also very interested in the use of new media, both to present scholarly findings and for public outreach. James has completed virtual 3D reconstructions of the original Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, the medieval city of Metz, and a number of colonial forts as part of his work on historical visualization.

Cora Angier Sowa
Ph.D.
Minerva Systems

Hello! I am an independent scholar working under the name “Minerva Systems.” I am currently developing a suite of programs called “The Minerva System for Study of Literary Texts,” a set of interactive tools for building and carrying out a project using the computer to study literary material. It uses methods of project planning borrowed from the scientific and commercial world, in which I worked for a number of years. Also included are programs to perform specific tasks, such as content/cluster analysis. The interactive part includes lots of pictures and other graphic material. My adaptation of these methods is based on classes I taught in the English Department of St. John’s University (New York). (I think my ideal target audience would be students and scholars of literature who like to play video games!)

As a scholar and by training, I am a Classicist. My scholarly specialty is ancient Greek oral epic — Homer, Hesiod, and (especially) the Homeric Hymns, the subject of my book, “Traditional Themes and the Homeric Hymns.” I have also written on the persistence of mythic themes (such as the Journey to the Underworld, the Meeting with the Goddess) from ancient epic (the popular entertainment of their day) in today’s movies. This summer’s “WALL-E” was a great example!

My past research and current interests encompass an examination of the critical role of hip-hop music as a U. S. “ambassador” to the global markets of identity, culture, and economics negotiated in the realm of mass-mediated popular cultures. Using hip-hop as a template for future studies incorporating Chicago house music, I seek to move beyond the well-known but oversimplified dichotomy of hegemony and resistance that frames sociological analyses of hip-hop, overlook the critical importance and reflection of the artists’ sociocultural capital as (U.S.) Americans (not just African-American, Latino, Asian-American, etc.), and exclude the complex implications of the music produced by women. Key foci for me include the nuanced/subtle, the sometimes oppressive/contradictory, and the resistive/expansive performative and lyrical practices and symbols, carried and expressed by women in hip-hop, and especially house, as they concurrently act as socializers of culture, both at home and abroad.

I am currently assisting in the development of a wiki site Consuming Blackness Diasporically, that explores black cultural expressive traditions in a setting of global dialogue. Connecting communities in Chicago/US, Trinidad and Brazil, the CBD project moves from mapping each unique cultural form and practice (house, rapso/pan/folk/orisha, and capoeira) to exploring the creative dialogue that emerges by putting these expressive traditions in conversation with each other.
