Select Digital Projects on Italy

The Dartmouth Dante Project (DDP) is a searchable full-text database containing more than seventy commentaries on Dante's Divine Comedy - the Commedia.

This project provides the reader with an easily accessible and flexible yet well-structured wealth of information on the literary, historical and cultural context of the Decameron.

This website is extremely comprehensive (and beautiful): it includes historical information, Dante's texts, translations, and other examples of digital projects.

The Garibaldi & the Risorgimento digital archive seeks to provide a comprehensive resource for the interdisciplinary study and teaching of the life and deeds of one of the protagonists of the Italian unification process, Giuseppe Garibaldi (1807-1882).

The Italian Women Writers project (IWW) is a long-term research endeavor to preserve and provide access to an extensive corpus of literature written by Italian women authors.

The collection ― comprising over four-million letters ― covers a chronological span of two hundred years, from 1537 to 1743. It documents the political, diplomatic, gastronomic, economic, artistic, scientific, military and medical culture of early modern Tuscany and Europe.

The Petrarchive is designed as a tool both to introduce Petrarch’s collection—a collection that continues to influence modern cultures in many languages—and to give advanced users access to Petrarch’s “original” text and an extensive “material” commentary for each poem. Within the Petrarchive you will find edited and diplomatic transcriptions of Petrarch’s songbook; visual maps illustrating Petrarch’s design, layout, and visual poetics; and multi-layered commentary addressing prosodic, historic, textual, and thematic issues along with an English translation of the poems.

One of the first known dictionaries of Italian and the first model of a single-language resource in Europe.

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.
