French and Francophone Digital Humanities Projects: A Guide

The goal of this LibGuide is to list all the Digital Humanities projects in French and Francophone Studies that are currently underway in the world. This is a great way to discover what others are doing, what kind of projects are of interest, and also, to make new connections and foster new collaborations and partnerships.

Select Digital Projects on France and the Francophone World

The website is designed to provide online access to both the French originals and the English translations of key primary sources dealing with the grain shortage faced by the colony of Saint-Domingue in 1789.

This collaborative blog seeks to explore the concept and occurrence of “revolution.”

The Baudelaire Song Project has one main aim: to research all the song settings ever of poems by famous French poet Charles Baudelaire.

This website offers an opportunity to explore the world of books on the eve of the French Revolution. It brings together material from the vast archives of the Société typographique de Neuchâtel, a publisher and wholesaler who provided all kinds of books to all parts of France from 1769 to 1789.

The goal of this mapping project is to show how location played a role in shaping the collaborations between Decadent writers and their publishers at the end of the nineteenth century in Paris. The authors in question include Joris-Karl Huysmans, Jean Lorrain, Rachilde, and Marcel Schwob.

With a database of images, texts, charts and historical maps, Mapping Gothic France invites you to explore the parallel stories of Gothic architecture and the formation of France in the 12th and 13th centuries, considered in three dimensions: Space, Time, Narrative.

What did the social, physical networks of the 18th century world of scholarship actually look like? Were they as extensive as we are led to believe? How did they evolve over time? Mapping the Republic of Letters seeks to answer these and other questions through the development of sophisticated, interactive visualization tools. It also aims to create a repository for metadata on early-modern scholarship, and guidelines for future data capture.

Le site est consacré à l'étude de la culture médiatique au 19e siècle et en tout premier lieu au journalisme. Le site propose la réédition annotée de textes d'époque, de corpus d'articles, de fictions ou d'essais, qui portent sur le journalisme

It offers online access to pictorial works and texts selected from the collections of the Art Slide Library, the Rockefeller Library and the John Hay Library at Brown University.

It is a full-text, fully-searchable online edition of Jean-Jacques Rousseau's writings. It includes 400 letters of Rousseau, though the major part of Rousseau's correspondence remains missing from this particular collection.

The site includes a section on "Paris of Les misérables" with maps of sites and itineraries and a section on "characters" which includes a database of all characters and their encounters as well as character-graphs for the entire novel and for each of its five parts.

ThIs project highlights Albert Huet's diary which narrates his experience of WW1. The diary is accompanied by a transcription of the text as is, a standardized French version of the text, and an English transcription. In addition to the diary, there is also a digital map which is based on Albert's diary. Each location connects to a specific page in the diary and for each entry, there are short explanations in both French and English.



Digital Humanities at UF

The Center has three interrelated purposes:
1. to facilitate and promote the research programs of humanities* scholars at the University,
2. to provide an intellectual space and a physical location within the University and College for critical and collaborative discussions of the humanities that reach across and beyond individual disciplines, and
3. to provide a place for outreach to the community in which we live and teach.

Check out this guide if you want to learn more about the Digital Humanities are and the different projects and initiatives happening at UF.

The Scott Nygren Scholars Studio, located in Library West, is an emerging community center for digital humanities and digital scholarship at the University of Florida. Open to faculty and graduate students to support collaborative dh/ds research and practice, the Studio offers the technology necessary for users to make new intellectual contributions in their fields.

UF’s new nine-credit, interdisciplinary graduate certificate in DH provides students with a broad-based study of DH practices; an in-depth experience of DH within a specific discipline; and the opportunity, through its capstone studio course, to produce a portfolio tailored to the student’s own discipline and career goals.

The Florida Digital Humanities Consortium (FLDH) is a collective of institutions in the State of Florida that seeks to promote an understanding of the humanities in light of digital technologies and research.
