Outline of a Resource Structuralism Theory of Social Structure and Process

Murray Milner
Beginning with the rudimentary concepts of separation, combination, and linking key notions such as social structure, social process, social system, self-regulating system, organism, and human nature are systematically defined and specified. Three axioms about human nature are stated regarding (1) gratification, scarcity, and insecurity, (2) human capacities, and (3) the propensity of evaluate. From these axioms a wide variety of propositions are derived, focusing especially on how variations in the type and mix of social...

Ludic Algorithms

Bethany Nowviskie
A review and description of Ramon Llull’s medieval Ars Magna, with attention to its structure and function and to past misunderstandings as to its purpose, helps situate instrumental issues that many digital humanities projects must address today. Among these are problems involved in establishing scholarly primitives and developing the rules or algorithms by which they can be manipulated in creative and revelatory ways. Llull also provides a framework in which to examine the relationship between...

Interpretation and Insider Threat: Re-reading the Anthrax Mailings of 2001 Through a “Big Data” Lens

Bethany Nowviskie & Gregory Saathoff
This pre-print chapter for a textbook on the use of so-called "big data" in anti-terrorism and law enforcement addresses the notion of insider threat, using the "Amerithrax" anthrax mailings of 2001 as a practical case study. The chapter explores how data analysis could aid investigators on major insider threat cases in visualizing and identifying patterns emerging from dense, rich, and very large sets of behavioral and transactional data that play out across metadata-bearing axes such...

What Goes Around: Swinburne’s *Century of Roundels*

Herbert Tucker
This essay begins, somewhat like the form of Swinburne’s devising that is its subject, at the end, which is to say at the ‘Envoi’ concluding A Century of Roundels on its last and hundredth page (Swinburne 1883, 100; 1904, 5.193): Fly, white butterflies, out to sea, Frail pale wings for the winds to try, Small white wings that we scarce can see Fly. Here and there may a chance-caught eye Note in a score of...

Tracking our performance: assessment at the University of Virginia Library

This volume: Looks at how a program was established...

Data Management Assessment and Planning Tools

Andrew Sallans & Sherry Lake
It has become increasingly accepted that important digital data must be retained and shared in order to preserve and promote knowledge, advance research in and across all disciplines of scholarly endeavor, and maximize the return on investment of public funds. To meet this challenge, colleges and universities are adding data services to existing infrastructures by drawing on the expertise of information professionals who are already involved in the acquisition, management and preservation of data in...

Seeing Swinburne: Toward a Mobile & Augmented-Reality Edition of Poems and Ballads, 1866

Bethany Nowviskie & Wayne Graham
Scholarly editing, in a literary context, involves the painstaking examination of scores of printed and hand-written documents for minute textual differences, in an effort to understand, represent, and sometimes combat change over time—the accidental and intentional transformations history wreaks on poetry and prose. These processes are physical as much as intellectual, and so is the work of the bibliographer; but you’d never know it to look at our scholarly editions—particularly at contemporary digital editions, which...

The New Acropolis Museum

Elizabeth Molacek
The New Acropolis Museum, opened in 2009 after over thirty years of debate surrounding its purpose, location and design. Originally begun only as a project to expand the storage and display capacity of the original museum, the current museum takes part in the complicated international debate regarding the home of the so-called Elgin marbles. The current paper explores how the new museum successfully re-contextualizes the art and artifacts of the Acropolis in order to provide...
