project: An anthropological investigation of bird sound

This project investigates the role of sound in the human perception of the non-human environment, focusing on human responses to the sounds of birds. Contrary to the view, commonly advanced in writings on human sensory perception, that vision and hearing are radically distinguished along the lines of a contrast between objective observation and subjective participation, we suggest that seeing is as much an experience of light as much as hearing is an experience of sound. Under what conditions, then, does sound enable us to hear things, as light enables us to see them? [read more]

project: Anglo-Saxon Cluster

The project builds on research carried out on four other projects mentioned elsewhere - PASE, LangScape, eSawyer and ASChart - which collectively provide models for digitising prosopographic data, boundary clauses, charter catalogues and the diplomatic discourse of the charters themselves. The Centre for Computing in the Humanities (CCH) is developing a new web-based digital resource articulated around the Anglo-Saxon charters as core material, through which the data and the corresponding metadata embodied in each of the component projects will be available together in a thematic cluster.
