Visionary Cross ProjectPosted: April 30, 2012
The “Visionary Cross” is an international, cross-disciplinary project directed by Catherine Karkov of the University of Leeds, Daniel Paul O’Donnell of the University of Lethbridge (Principal Investigator), Roberto Rosselli Del Turco of the Università degli studi di Torino, with James Graham (Multimedia, University of Lethbridge) and Wendy Osborn (Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Lethbridge).
The goal of this project is to draw together a number of recent developments in the Digital Humanities and use them to produce an innovative and intellectually significant study of a key group of Anglo-Saxon texts and monuments. In doing so, the project will contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the Digital Humanities and Anglo-Saxon studies. Within the Digital Humanities it will serve as a model for the next generation of digital projects, providing an example of how such technologies and rhetorics can be used to produce significant and lasting works of humanities scholarship. Within Anglo-Saxon studies the project will greatly improve upon existing research tools, and, by exploiting proven strengths of contemporary technology, present its content in ways that allow scholars to address questions difficult or impossible to answer using print-based resources.
