English 3450a: What I did/did not know about Anglo-Saxon England (Revised assignement)

Contents

Instructions

Do some preliminary internet research on some aspect of the history, life, language, literature, or culture of Anglo-Saxon England. Find some introductory resources that interest you and write a short report discussing some aspect you found interesting.

Purpose

The goal of this project is to help you begin your study of Anglo-Saxon England by learning about topics that interest you and that you may want to follow up on as part of your final project (there is no obligation to do so, however). The best work would therefore most likely involve more than one source. At this stage, the work need not (probably should not) be exhaustive. All you need really is to identify an area that might be interesting to look at further.

Rubric

This is a formative exercise and hence will not count again directly against your final grade (unless of course it is the best grade in the category). It is being assigned to help you begin to organise your interests in advance of beginning your final project.

I will be assigning you a grade so that you can use this to assess your own progress. For this project, I will be following my standard essay rubric, though with less emphasis on argument and thesis and more on evidence of engagement and problem definition. I will also be taking into account the preliminary and slightly informal nature of the assignment.

Due date and Length.

  • Due: See syllabus for date and method of submission.
  • Length: Minimum 2-3pp (i.e. 600-900 words); maximum: 5-6pp (i.e. 1500-1800 words). All page limits are double-spaced.
  • Presentation: Please follow my standard style sheet.

New: Global Outlook DH is the fist official ADHO SIG ht…

Global Outlook DH is the fist official ADHO SIG adho.org/announcements/… globaloutlookdh.org/godh-is-adhos-… – Come join us globaloutlookdh.org/join/


GO::DH is ADHO’s first official SIG

Global Outlook :: Digital Humanities (GO::DH) is the first official Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO).

Thanks to Neil Fraistat and Lisa Spiro at ADHO for coordinating the announcement and to Neil, Harold Short, and Ray Siemens for their early advice and, in Ray’s case especially, the help provided by INKE in setting up our extremely productive meeting in Cuba.


Paamayim Nekudotayim, or, why the double colon?

A couple of people have asked about the double colon. It’s mostly a small joke. In PHP, the double colon is a scope resolution operatorHere’s an example from the PHP manual:

<?php
class MyClass {
const CONST_VALUE = 'A constant value';
}

echo MyClass::CONST_VALUE;
?>

The result would be A constant value.

So in this case, global outlook::digital humanities means “whatever the value of ‘digital humanities’ is in the scope of a ‘global outlook’.” The fact that the operator has a non-english name, even in English programming contexts, seemed pretty neat too (As the wikipedia explains: “The name “Paamayim Nekudotayim” was introduced in the Israeli-developed Zend Engine 0.5 used in PHP 3.” In Hebrew, it means “double dot twice” and is spelled פעמיים נקודתיים).
