Hannah and Ben present at the first UNRH conference at Davidson College

“A Thousand Times Worse than Death” was one of six featured digital humanities projects at the first Undergraduate Network for Research in the Humanities conference held at Davidson College, November 6-8, 2015.  UNRH brings together students from around the country (and Canada) who are developing digital humanities projects, either on their own or in conjunction with a faculty member’s research program.  More than 30 students participated; a lightning round of presentations permitted the students to learn about each others’ projects and make fruitful connections with each other.  On Saturday morning, six projects were presented to the entire group.  Hannah and Ben did a fantastic job of presenting the scope and depth of the Essex timeline and of fielding questions.

For more information about the conference and the projects, see http://unrh.org/.  A Youtube video of the presentations will be available soon.

The Essex Timeline goes public!

Although still only 20% complete at best, the Essex Timeline is now open to everyone.  The Timeline is the centerpiece of the larger ongoing research project called “A Thousand Times Worse Than Death: A Thanatography of the Earl of Essex.”  Please be sure to read the introduction and instructions when you first access the Timeline.  We invite feedback of any sort on the Timeline–its design or the content of individual entries.
