11 December 2015 Georeferencing the Early Modern London Book Trade: 3. What’s in an Imprint?
In my previous blog post, I proposed a model TEI-XML tree for encoding and geocoding bibliographic datasets. In the conclusion of that piece, I suggested that, in order to implement such a model, print historians must pool their resources and expertise through collaborative data mining and sharing. O...
8 December 2015 Georeferencing the Early Modern London Book Trade: 2. Filling the Space in Bibliographies
In my previous blog post, I discussed the need for geocoded bibliographic databases in print culture studies and the enormous value of the spatial queries that such databases would enable. What would such a database look like? How might programmers and encoders design a database that dynamically links data points about material books and stationers with spatial variables?...
4 December 2015 Georeferencing the Early Modern London Book Trade: 1. Theory without Practice
The following blog post identifies a disjunction in how the geohumanities spatial turn has influenced theoretical literature in print culture studies as compared to practical, bibliographic datasets. First, I provide an overview of recent literature in print culture studies and geography, noting an i...
25 November 2015 Georeferencing the Early Modern London Book Trade: Introduction
In summer 2014, I took a directed studies course with Janelle Jenstad, focusing on the use of historical GIS as a tool for analyzing the spatial distribution and interaction of the early modern London book trade. The course combined curriculum from Ian Gregory’s Geographical Information Systems in th...
20 March 2015 Paint over Print Conference
Conference Information Paint over Print: Hand-Colored Books and Maps of the Early Modern Period took place on 19 and 20 February, 2015, at the University of Pennsylvania. The conference brought together scholars to consider different aspects of hand-colored books and printed maps from the fifteenth to the seventeenth centuries: the materials and techniques used; the aesthetics of hand coloring...
5 October 2014 CodeSharing: A Simple API for Disseminating our TEI Encoding
Introduction Although the TEI Guidelines are full of helpful examples, and other initiatives such as TEI By Example have made great progress in providing more access to samples of text-encoding to help beginners get started, there is no doubt that one of the biggest obstacles to encoders at many levels is finding out how other scholars and projects have chosen ...
24 July 2014 Marking Up Stow’s Survey of London
When I first began working with John Stow’s Survey of London sometime in the summer of 2012, I had no clue what I was getting into. I’m not sure I had even heard of Stow before being assigned the task of performing TEI markup on his text. Only a few short weeks later, though, I was so immer...
20 June 2014 Introducing the First Digital Gazetteer of Early Modern London!
We are very excited to announce the launch of the MoEML Gazetteer of Early Modern London, conceived by Project Director, Janelle Jenstad, and Programmer, Martin Holmes. To the best of our knowledge, until now there has been no authority li...
26 February 2014 MoEML’s Pedagogical Partnership Project (PPP) is launched!
MoEML is thrilled to announce that our pilot Pedagogical Partnership Project (PPP)—an innovative model for teachers, student researchers, and digital humanities projects—is now up and running. Wha...
17 February 2014 To Blog or Not to Blog
Do we want a blog? asked RA Zaqir Virani after taking on our social media responsibilities in Summer 2013. Programmer Martin Holmes, always sensitive to the last updated ISO date on any webpage, pointed out that we’d let our News page languish in the past. We’d have to commit to posting regularly. Bei...

25 November 2013 Encoding as WYSIWYG Production
26 August, 2013 Encoding as WYSIWYG Production As a musician, encoding never seemed like it would be in my wheelhouse. I suppose the nature of the beast gets obscured by the myth – If I pictured mark-up code, I did not see the reality, but instead the lines of binary from Swordfish or The Matrix. ...
18 November 2013 Welcome to MoEML v.5!
Welcome to the new and improved version of The Map of Early Modern London! What you see is the result of over a year of dreaming, thinking, debating, planning, implementing, testing, and tweaking. Even though we’re still working out some glitches, it’s time to point our URL at the new...
11 September 2013 Encoding an Underground Text in the Underground
As John Stow’s Survey of London (in all its editions) is traditionally a text to reference, not to work on exclusively, I’ve enjoyed encoding this early modern cult classic in a basement computing lab—an underground text in the underground. The HCMC is not all dark and gloomy, of course, but a basement is a baseme...
