The Anatolian Travelers Project aims to map pre-20th century CE travel accounts about western Anatolia (modern Turkey). We hope to better understand human movement through this landscape prior to the advent of modern transportation technologies.
This site was built as part of a Penn Classics course. Students used Neatline, Neatline Text, and Simile Timeline to embed the text of travel narratives on interactive maps and timelines.
Many types of literature appeared radical in the 19th century in the United States: some texts were politically extreme, some stylistically innovative and others violated literary standards of taste. Many texts did all three. This project investigates the connection between innovations in style and content as well as messages that demanded social change.
The Archive for Ornamental Bodies is an experiment in the documentation and description of bodies — natural bodies, human bodies, metaphysical bodies, linguistic bodies. The AOB collects bodies of all materials and forms. It is our particular mission, however, to gather bodies characterized by some extravagance or inessentiality, and to confer plentitude on their excess through the medium of language.
This project grew out of an inventory of the Centennial collection in the Perkins Rare Book Room at the Fisher Fine Arts library. and What We Saw and How We Saw It, the book selected for the basis of this project. The text is a tour guide written for visitors to Memorial Hall, the art gallery of the Centennial. The way the text is written, visitors are guided from gallery to gallery, and are told about the different paintings and artists on exhibit. By recreating the gallery space virtually, we can move through Memorial Hall as visitors in 1876 would have done, experiencing the space and the paintings in the same context. Due to time contraints, only the American section has been covered. But, it is hoped that this project will be continued, so that the full gallery tour will be available.
