Electronic Visualisation of nineteenth-century French literary-scientific texts

Date:
2008-2009
Themes:
ELearning, Platforms and Tools, Educational Enhancement, Semantic Web
Funding:
University of Southampton: Learning and Teaching Enhancement Fund

The main aim of the project is to create and pilot an interactive electronic visualisation tool to be used in the delivery of research-led nineteenth-century French literature and culture teaching at final year UG level (Fren3024 'Flaubert’s France') next academic year. The tool would also be used to support nineteenth-century texts on a new second year module, Fren2017 ('Takes on Texts'). What appears as a 'simple' visualisation will be developed using Web 2.0 technologies to allow students to explore the multiple perspectives, themes contexts and timelines within their core texts. Additional authoring tools will enable domain experts to create such visualisations encouraging continued use of these technologies.
