Vika Safrin, Brown University
Vika discussed a project that was very unfamiliar with — apparently, the Virtual Humanities Lab was a two year project supported by the NEH between 04 and 06 to create a platform for collaborative humanities research. I’d talked with Vika about this project a little bit after her talk. The project is an interesting one. The project resulted in the creation of a web portal that includes a number of early modern Italian texts with ability to annotate and edit elements of these texts within a collaborative environment. As described, the project sounded like a wikipedia equivalent to collaborative research — very interesting but I’m a sucker for anything that uses TEI (we don’t get to use TEI at OSU).
