At beginning of the nineteenth century in Europe and North America, laws began to prevent child labor and enforce compulsory education. These measures increased literacy rates in the general population just as new developments in printing technology also made books cheaper to purchase, leading to what is now known as the Golden Age of Children’s Literature during the latter half of the nineteenth century. The wide range of children’s literature produced in the Golden Age and the simultaneous development of a publishing industry that catered to a younger market continue to influence children’s and young adult fiction to this day. Harry Potter’s fantasy world and the adventures of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games find their origin in nineteenth century stories that describe the wonders of magic, the drudgery of boarding school, and the rise of imperialism.
Authors such as Lafcadio Hearn, Lewis Carroll, Kenneth Grahame, Charles Dickens, Francis Hodgson Burnett, Mark Twain, and Louisa May Alcott all wrote during this monumental period. These authors' books, held by the Division of Special Collections, will be on display as part of Princesses and Paupers: The Golden Age of Children's Literature, an exhibition curated by Ellie Campbell, a graduate student in the School of Library and Information Studies.

The Kate Ragsdale Memorial Miniature Book Collection and
the Miniature Book Society Display on View in Gorgas Library

 
The Miniature Book Society (MBS) traveling exhibition and the Kate W. Ragsdale Memorial Miniature Book Collection will be combined into one display viewable in the Pearce Lobby of the Amelia Gayle Gorgas Library during the months of April and May. The MBS exhibition is generously sponsored by the Alabama Center for the Book. Dean Louis A. Pitschmann created the Memorial Miniature Book Collection to honor Kate Ragsdale’s service to the University Libraries. Together, these two shows highlight the artistry required to create miniature books.
 
The Miniature Book Society’s (MBS) traveling exhibition, featuring a diverse range of items showcasing the history of the art form, rotates through different sites throughout the year. The show will conclude its tour at the MBS’ three-day convention this August in Boston, Massachusetts.
 
The Kate Ragsdale Memorial Miniature Book Collection, on show for the first time, contains ninety-six books from eleven countries, including Austria, France, Great Britain, Israel, the Soviet Union, and the United States. The Bible in miniature: or a Concise History of the Old & New Testaments [sic], published in 1780, is the oldest book in the collection. A wide variety of American presses are represented. Additionally, a series of miniature editions of Shakespeare’s plays can be found.


 
The Memorial Miniature Book Collection was created to recognize Kate Ragsdale’s life and career following her death in 2013. Ragsdale earned a BA from Sweet Briar College and a MLS from The University of Alabama. She began her career as a Program Coordinator in the College of Business and Commerce before joining the Libraries administration team as a planning officer in 1987. Ragsdale managed construction and renovation projects, including the building of Mary Harmon Bryant Hall and the Library Annex, during her over twenty years of service at the Capstone. Ragsdale frequently served as an officer in organizations such as the Alabama Library Association, the Special Libraries Association, and the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL). In 2004, she received the UA Library Leadership Award for faculty. In 2012, she won the UA School of Library and Information Studies Alumni Award.
 
Miniature books, books that are smaller than three or four inches in height, were created to allow for greater portability. Aside from their size, miniature books are just like any other book. They have covers, text, and even illustrations. While these tiny books have existed since the Babylonians, they became popular in the nineteenth century due to Napoleon Bonaparte. Napoleon collected miniature books, carrying them with him as he pursued his conquests. In the United States, miniature books enjoy a long history. Thumb Bibles, hymnals, satire, travelogues, and almanacs created by early settlers were often converted into tiny editions. Today, miniature books are often hand-made in a limited edition as a type of artists’ book.

Guest Speaker Scot French
Southern History as Spatial History: Visualizing the Local-Regional-Global Dimensions of Community Life and Place-Making

The spatial turn in digital humanities has transformed the field of the Southern history over the past two decades by encouraging large-scale/center-based projects and, more recently, small-scale/D.I.Y. projects that highlight the movement of people/culture/ideas across time and space. How might Southern historians take full advantage of vast new digital archives and desktop visualization tools to explore the local-regional-global dimensions of community life and place-making? Scot French will present several case studies drawn from his work as a digital public historian at the University of Virginia (1994-2010) and the University of Cent ral Florida (2010-present) to illuminate larger developments in the field and suggest new directions for collaborative teaching and research.

"Unchaining Alabama"
Curated by:  Benjamin Flax, University of Alabama Student


The display is based on work by UA senior Benjamin Flax, who is researching UA’s ties to slavery as part of an independent research project supervised by history professor Josh Rothman, director of UA’s Summersell Center for the Study of the South.

It will include a collection of approximately 40 original documents, transcriptions and other research materials used by Flax.

The purpose of the research is to present the documents and other materials related to slavery at UA without preconceptions.

“I am trying to stay away from claims about what it was,” he said in September. “Because I don’t know that. This is not to create a narrative or tell a story. It is to present history in its raw form.”

A screening of a cultural movie for our members and other interested students on campus.

We're hoping to make students more aware of how other cultures react to major issues such as dealing with individuals who have some sort of mental impairment so that they can leave comparing and contrasting the way certain issues are dealt with in the United States versus a region of the world that they may not have been exposed to before.

The Alabama Center for the Book, under the aegis of The University Libraries at The University of Alabama, and The University of Alabama Press are pleased to invite UA students, faculty, and staff, as well as the public to a lunchtime speaker series spotlighting recent works by Alabama writers.
The partnership's free hour-long sessions will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn from and engage directly with authors whose new books illuminate facets of The University, our state, region, and world. The first speaker in the series is The University's Robert Oliver Mellown, associate professor of art history emeritus, who'll present the fascinating history and hidden by-ways of Alabama's glorious campus in his magisterial new guide "The University of Alabama: A Guide to the Campus and Its Architecture".

From lifelong Tuscaloosa residents to incoming freshmen, all will enjoy this unique opportunity to learn about our storied environs. Room #205 in the east wing of Gorgas Library will be set with tables, and attendees are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch or purchase lunch in the library's grab-and-go café.


The series continues in the new year with the following authors:
 
•           Feb. 6, 2014, Lila Quintero Weaver, “Darkroom:  A Memoir in Black and White”
•           March 6, 2014, R. Scot Duncan, “Southern Wonder:  Alabama’s Surprising Biodiversity”
•           April 3, 2014, Philip D. Beidler, “The Island called Paradise:  Cuba in History, Literature, and the Arts”
•           May 15, 2014, Nimrod Frazer, “Send the Alabamians:  World War I Fighters in the Rainbow Division”

Topic Modeling the "Great Unread"


With the recent dramatic increase in the number of digitized texts, humanists are being called upon to re-evaluate their approaches. With a sufficiently-large corpus, even a trained scholar will struggle with problems of incomplete metadata and subject opacity.  The discipline of Computer Science encourages us to move beyond the Keyword Search model, towards algorithms that enable data to "organize itself."  What then is the relevance, in this new world, of the training and experience that literary scholars possess? How can literary  "domain expertise" complement algorithmic approaches to text mining?

Peter Leonard is Librarian for Digital Humanities Research at Yale University Library.  His recent work as Principal Investigator of a Google Digital Humanities Grant has focused on Topic Modeling as a technique for exposing hidden structure in the Nordic-language volumes in Google Books. He received his doctorate in Scandinavian Literature from the University of Washington.

"Absolutely the Most Important Thing You Know Nothing About: Shorthand and Civilization in the 17th- Century England"
Lecture by Dr. Michael Mendle


Isaac Newton the mathematician, John Locke the philosopher, Samuel Pepys the navy official and diarist, and Roger Williams the great apologist for religious liberty had something in common—they were all shorthand adepts.  An information technology for the clever and “geeky,” stenography emerged with astonishing rapidity in 17th-cenury England, well before parallel developments elsewhere.  First seen as an aid to Puritan piety, shorthand’s possibilities were soon grasped by ambitious and creative people seeking to make points and profits.  By mid-century it had become essential to news-gathering, by the end it transformed law and public culture, redefining the normal expectation of public memory.

Guest Speaker Beverly Semmes

Sponsored by: Sarah Moody Gallery of Art, Art Department


Beverly Semmes is an internationally acclaimed artist who creates environments of lush textiles and accompanying materials.  Organized by the Hunter Museum of American Art in Chattanooga, the exhibition features glass and clay vessels with oversized garments.  Patterson Sims writes in the accompanying catalog: “They are costumes in search of their characters, patiently seeking and awaiting women—or maybe men, children, or a culture—big enough to wear them.” The vessels’ freeform and coarse features contrast with the smoothness of the fabric.  Semmes is the recipient of many awards and grants: among them an NEA Fellowship (1994-95), a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship (1997) and an award from the Art Critics International Association (2001).  Her work is in the collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC, as well as the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. Semmes lives in New York City and teaches at NYU and Pratt Institute.

"The Promise and Perils of Doing History in the Digital Age"


Description: What will become of the humanities in the Age of Google?  Andrew Torget will talk about the unprecedented challenges and opportunities that face historians in the twenty-first century.  Tracing the evolution of the digital humanities over the past two decades, Torget will explore how new research methods (such as geospatial analysis and text-mining) are creating a quiet revolution among historians, and what that could mean for how we understand the past.

Torget is a historian of nineteenth-century North America at the University of North Texas, where he directs the Digital History Lab.  The founder and director of numerous digital humanities projects -- including Mapping Texts, Texas Slavery Project, Voting America, and the History Engine -- Andrew served as co-editor of the Valley of the Shadow project, and as the founding director of the Digital Scholarship Lab at the University of Richmond.  The co-editor of several books on the American Civil War, Andrew has been a featured speaker on the digital humanities at Harvard, Stanford, Rice, and the National Archives in Washington, D. C.  In 2011, he was named the inaugural David J. Weber Research Fellow at the Clements Center for Southwest Studies at Southern Methodist University.  He is currently completing a book titled Cotton Empire: Slavery, the Texas Borderlands, and the Origins of the U.S.-Mexico War.

Intellectual Property in the Academy
Workshop


This workshop examines the basic contours of copyright law as it applies in scholarly communication. What is intellectual property, what is the public domain, and how does fair use apply? What should be in a request when permission is needed, and what is worth negotiating for? Finally, what rights do scholars have as creators of intellectual property and how can those rights be exercised?

Accessibility in Digital Humanities
Brown Bag Lunch


How can we broaden our understanding of the ways that people use digital resources by considering the experiences of users with disabilities? In this brown bag, we will discuss contemporary DH conversation about "access," strategies for widening this access in our own projects, and issues, such as heavy reliance on visualization, that exclude some users from working with particular digital tools and resources.
