A few resources from the recent NEH Project Director’s Meeting

I recently attend an NEH Project Director’s meeting in DC and wanted to share news of a few projects that I thought might interest the group:


(in pre-release)

“Poemage is a visualization system for exploring the sonic topology of a poem. We define sonic topology as the complex structures formed via the interaction of sonic patterns — words connected through some sonic or linguistic resemblance — across the space of the poem. Poemage was developed at the University of Utah as part of an ongoing, highly exploratory collaboration between data visualization experts and poets/poetry scholars. Additional details are provided in the companion paper [to appear in IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics].”
