Digital Humanities, Libraries, Schools, Social Commitment

The program of Digital Humanities, Libraries, Schools, Social Commitment was launched and evolved in an environment defined by the potential of traditional and digital libraries, and by the research opportunities yielded by both written texts and multimedia creations, from music to image, including video.
This conceptual model which brings together primary and critical sources, visual representations, marginalia and annotated essays can be expanded into the overall life of many of the subjects taught at the Faculty. It also includes book specificities such as the type of paper used, the binding, etc and allows also teachers to create research materials. Therefore, due to its own paradigm, which creates new platforms of knowledge, data included can be useful to everybody who browses it, as it can also function as an information portal. This user-centered accessibility (as we shall see later on) established in a real cultural change, encourages also people with access difficulties (distance learners, elderly, ethnic minorities, community users, etc.)

Plataforma digital World Cultures in English

 


The program of Digital Humanities, Libraries, Schools, Social Commitment was launched and evolved in an environment defined by the potential of traditional and digital libraries, and by the research opportunities yielded by both written texts and multimedia creations, from music to image, including video. It also benefits from the interaction between university platforms and associated institutions, and from the transformation Higher Education and research have undergone with free access to e-texts, data bases and critical production.
Furthermore, this conceptual model which brings together primary and critical sources, visual representations, marginalia and annotated essays can be expanded into the overall life of many of the subjects taught at the Faculty. It also includes book specificities such as the type of paper used, the binding, etc and allows also teachers to create research materials. Therefore, due to its own paradigm, which creates new platforms of knowledge, data included can be useful to everybody who browses it, as it can also function as an information portal. This user-centered accessibility, established in a real cultural change, encourages also those with access difficulties (distance learners, elderly, ethnic minorities, community users, among others).
This University of Lisbon Centre of English Studies (ULICES) research program, formerly entitled Reception of Cultures in English in the Faculty of Humanities Library Collections, was first put together in 2010 by researchers Alcinda Pinheiro de Sousa, Pedro Estácio and Teresa de Ataíde Malafaia. It included scientific counseling by Emeritus Professor Isobel Armstrong, from the University of London, and collaboration with the British Library in the form of expert advice from Jamie Andrews, Head of English and Drama Department. 
The program is concerned with the bibliographical and cultural study of the collections in English made up of purchases and donations, both by individuals and institutions, which, since 1878, have been systematically incorporated in the collections of the University of Lisbon Faculty of Humanities Library, successor of and heir to the Curso Superior de Letras Library, founded in 1859 by king D. Pedro V.
