IMAGES AND MANUSCRIPTS AS OBJECTS IN DIGITAL SYSTEMS

RAPID IMPROVEMENT IN COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY HAS ENABLED ELECTRONIC
STORAGE AND PRESENTATION OF PICTORIAL AND MANUSCRIPT MATERIALS
AT RESOLUTIONS THAT RIVAL CONVENTIONAL PHOTOGRAPHIC
REPRODUCTION. NEW COST-EFFECTIVE PUBLISHING AND DISTRIBUTION
SYSTEMS HAVE ALSO DEVELOPED USING CD ROMS AND COMPUTER
NETWORKS. THUS, IT IS NOW POSSIBLE TO CREATE DIGITAL ARCHIVES
CONTAINING UPWARDS OF 50,000 TO 100,000 DIGITAL OBJECTS (PAGES
OF MANUSCRIPT, PHOTOGRAPHS, ETC.). THIS COURSE EXPLORES SOME OF
THE PRACTICAL AND THEORETICAL ISSUES INVOLVED IN THE DEVELOPMEN
OF DIGITAL ARCHIVES.

CREDIT: .5 FCE
INSTRUCTOR:
MANFRED THALLER
COURSE DURATION:
JULY 16 TO JULY 26, 1997
CONTACT HOURS:
FOUR HOURS PER DAY CONSISTING OF 1 TO 2 HOURS OF
LECTURE AND 2 TO 3 HOURS OF LABS. STUDENTS MAY FIND
THEY NEED ADDITIONAL LAB TIME TO COMPLETE THE REQUIRED
MATERIAL AND DEVELOP SUFFICIENT EXPERTISE. THE COURSE
WILL RUN 6 DAYS PER WEEK.


OBJECTIVES:

THIS COURSE WILL PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH A COMPREHENSIVE SURVEY OF
THE EXISTING TECHNOLOGIES USED TO DEVELOP DIGITAL ARCHIVES, BY
PARTICIPATION IN A "TEACHING PROJECT". THEORETICAL ISSUES
UNDERLYING DIGITAL ARCHIVE DESIGN ARE ALSO EMPHASIZED IN THE
LECTURE COMPONENT. PARTICIPANTS WILL BE LED THROUGH ALL STAGES
IN THE CREATION OF A SMALL DIGITAL ARCHIVE. THIS WILL CULMINATE
IN THE PRODUCTION OF A CD ROM, AND RENDERING IT AVAILABLE

GRADUATE STUDIES 5117 SPECIAL TOPICS

QUESTIONING THE IMAGE: FORM, CONTENT AND THE ANALYSIS OF MEANING.

THIS COURSE FOCUSES UPON ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH PRESERVING AND
INTERPRETING "MEANING" IMPLICIT IN SOURCE MATERIALS AS THEY ARE
DEVELOPED AS ELECTRONIC MEDIA. WHILE AMBIGUITY OF MEANING IS
EVIDENT IN TEXTUAL SOURCES, IT IS PARTICULARLY APPARENT WHEN THE
ANALYST ADDRESSES GRAPHIC AND AUDIO-VISUAL DATA. EXPLORATION OF
THESE SEMANTIC NETWORKS WITHIN MULTIMEDIA DATASETS IS THE
PRIMARY FOCUS OF THIS COURSE. IT REVIEWS HOW MULTIMEDIA
TECHNOLOGIES ENABLE RESEARCHERS TO MOVE BEYOND THE CONSTRAINTS
OF CONVENTIONAL TEXTUAL DATA, AND RIGOROUSLY EXPLORE SUBTLE
MEANINGS EXPRESSED IN THE USE OF LANGUAGE AND GESTURE, AND
PRESERVED IN AUDIO-VISUAL MEDIA.

CREDIT: .5 FCE
INSTRUCTOR:
JEAN COLSON
COURSE DURATION:
JULY 16 TO JULY 26, 1997
CONTACT HOURS:
FOUR HOURS PER DAY CONSISTING OF 1 TO 2 HOURS OF
LECTURE AND 2 TO 3 HOURS OF LABS. STUDENTS MAY FIND
THEY NEED ADDITIONAL LAB TIME TO COMPLETE THE REQUIRED
MATERIAL AND DEVELOP SUFFICIENT EXPERTISE. THE COURSE
WILL RUN 6 DAYS PER WEEK.

OBJECTIVES:

TRADITIONALLY, SCHOLARS WITHIN THE HUMANITIES SELEC
REPRESENTATIVE TEXTUAL DATA TO ILLUSTRATE INTERPRETATIONS
DERIVED FROM A LARGER BODY OF LITERATURE. THE LIMITATIONS OF
CONVENTIONAL WRITING AND PUBLICATION HAS CONSTRAINED THE
ANALYSIS, PRESENTATION AND JUSTIFICATION OF SUCH
INTERPRETATION. HOWEVER, WITH MULTIMEDIA TECHNOLOGIES, SCHOLARS
ARE IN A POSITION TO PRESENT A LARGE CORPUS OF PRIMARY
DOCUMENTATION AND SIMULTANEOUSLY DEMONSTRATE THE INTERPRETATIVE
PROCESS USING TEXT, SOUND AND IMAGES. THIS COURSE REVIEWS THE
THEORETICAL AND ANALYTICAL IMPLICATIONS OF RESEARCH IN AN
ELECTRONIC ENVIRONMENT BY DEMONSTRATING THE PROCESS USING
MICROCOSM TO DRAW UPON TEXTUAL, GRAPHICAL, SOUND AND VIDEO
SOURCES.

METHOD:

DAILY 1 HOUR EXPOSITION FOLLOWED BY `HANDS-ON' WORK WITH TEXT,
IMAGES, SOUND AND VIDEO AS NECESSARY FOR THE ANALYSIS OF MEANING
IN IMAGES. THE FIRST FIVE SESSIONS WOULD BE TAKEN UP WITH
THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL TECHNIQUES, INCLUDING READINGS OF
RELEVANT APPROACHES. A SELECTION OF TEXTS WILL BE MADE
AVAILABLE. THE SECOND FIVE SESSIONS WILL INVOLVE THE
CONSTRUCTION OF AN APPLICATION BEARING IN MIND THE THEORETICAL
PERSPECTIVES OFFERED. THE FINAL SESSION WILL INVOLVE AN ORAL
EXPOSITION BY THE STUDENT DRAWING ON THE APPLICATION WHICH HAS
BEEN CONSTRUCTED.

ASSESSMENT:
CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT - 20% OBSERVATION, 50% THROUGH THE MULTIMEDIA
APPLICATION, 30% ORAL EXPOSITION.

CONTENT:

DAY 1 - WEDNESDAY 16TH JULY
1. BEYOND ILLUSTRATION - WHAT IS AN IMAGE AS `SOURCE' USING AN
APPLICATION CONSTRUCTED FOR THE PURPOSE.

DAY 2 - THURSDAY 17TH JULY
2. HOW DO WE DERIVE MEANING - THE QUESTIONS WHICH MIGHT BE ASKED:
- WHO?, WHAT? WHY, WHEN? - MARKUP AND THE BOUNDARIES OF AN IMAGE.


DAY 3 - FRIDAY 18TH JULY
3. EXPLOITING AN EXEMPLAR IMAGE.
4. A WORKSHOP SESSION - IN WHICH STUDENTS `MOUNT' THEIR `OWN'
IMAGE AND EXPLORE THE WAYS IN WHICH MEANING MIGHT BE `TAPPED' :
THIS WILL ENTAIL THE EXPLORATION OF THE NOTION OF DIFFEREN
`VOICES' AND IMPOSED `VIEWS'. THE STUDENTS SHOULD ALSO EXPLORE
THE ISSUES INVOLVED IN THE IDENTIFICATION OF `VIEWS' AND `SIGNS -
SYMBOLS' OR METAPHORS.

DAY 4 - SATURDAY 19TH JULY
5. MODELLING `VIEWS' AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF INTERPRETATION.
STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO `MODEL' THEIR VIEWS IN THE SOFTWARE
PROVIDED BY MICROCOSM. THE ADDITION OF `COMMENT' AND `ALTERNATIVE
IMAGES' OR `ARGUMENT'.

DAY 5 TO 9 - MONDAY 21ST JULY TO FRIDAY 25TH JULY
6. THE STUDENTS WILL BE BUILDING THEIR OWN APPLICATION, PROVIDING
SYSTEMATIC EXPLOITATION OF THEIR SOURCES AND SHORT ORAL
EXPOSITIONS OF THEIR PLANS AND COMPLETED WORK.

DAY 10 - SATURDAY 26TH JULY
7. STUDENT PRESENTATIONS - STUDENTS WILL TALK TO THEIR
APPLICATION. AN ORAL EXPOSITION WILL TAKE NOT LESS THAN 20
MINUTES. THIS INCLUDES A `LIVE' DEMONSTRATION.
