Euripides Scholia: Scholia on Orestes 1–500
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Scholia are the annotations found in medieval manuscripts of Greek authors. They are found in the margins and between the lines of a primary text, or occasionally gathered in a separate codex or section of a codex. The annotations represent an amalgamation of commentary and glosses made over a long period of time, from the 2nd century BCE to the Renaissance, and designed for a wide spectrum of users, from professional scholars and advanced teachers to learners using the primary text as a means of learning classical Greek vocabulary, grammar, and style.

This edition is part of a long-term, open-ended project to provide a more extensive accounting of the annotations on the tragedies of Euripides than ever before. This book provides an edition of the prefatory material (argumenta) and scholia on the first 500 lines of Orestes: about 9000 items drawn from over 30 manuscripts.
This is eBook version of the online edition of scholia at EuripidesScholia.org, covering Release 1 (2020) with the annotations on Euripides, Orestes 1–500. This version is intended for digital preservation purposes. Updates and greater functionality are available at the online site.

The goal of this project is to provide high-quality, accessible primary sources to those teaching and studying the histories and cultures of the Spanish-speaking world and the indigenous peoples of Latin America. Our modules cover a wide range of topics, but all consist of the same essential parts:

A brief introduction that provides socio-historical context for the primary document.
The text itself, often glossed for improved comprehension by non-native speakers of Spanish.
A set of activities that range from comprehension to analysis, from using new vocabulary to answering creative writing and essay prompts.

Plague Diaries: Firsthand Accounts of Epidemics, 430 B.C. to A.D. 1918
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-SA
Rating

This project originated in response to the Covid-19 pandemic sweeping the globe and its various knock-on effects. We created a small collection of openly available primary documents discussing epidemics from the past, such as the Black Death in Europe in the mid-fourteenth century and smallpox hitting northern Michigan in the nineteenth.

Our initial goal was to highlight similarities between past outbreaks and modern ones, including Covid-19. To that end, there are questions presented at the end of each source that inquire about parallels that can be drawn between then and now. There are also questions designed to explore similarities between the various sources themselves, to highlight patterns that can be seen across time. Our hope is that this collection will be useful not just for history classes, but also for political science, anthropology, psychology, and perhaps some of the hard sciences as well.

Table of Contents:
“Such was the history of the plague:” from History of the Peloponnesian War
“During these times there was a pestilence:” History of the Wars
“All human wisdom and foresight were vain:” Foreword to The Decameron
A Journal of the Plague Year: Bubonic Plague in London, 1665
“The disorder, I fear, increases:” Yellow Fever in Philadelphia, 1803
“We Have a Terrible Sickness Here at This Place:” Smallpox on the Ottawa Reservation in Peshawbestown, Michigan, 1881
“I have used my best effort in a kind way:” Smallpox among the Hopi, 1898
“We Sure Did Get Tired:” Letter from a Volunteer Nurse, October 17, 1918

The Show Must Go On! American Theater in the Great Depression
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

The Great Depression had an enormous impact on theatre across the United States. Productions decreased dramatically, audiences shrank, and talented writers, performers, and directors fled the industry to find work in Hollywood. But despite adversity, the show went on. The public construction projects of the Works Progress Administration built new theaters in cities across America. The Federal Theatre Project was established to fund theatre and performances across the country providing work to unemployed artists. This influx of new artists had transformed the industry, opening theatre to new voices, themes, and audiences. This exhibition explores these Depression-era changes and their impact on American theater. This exhibition was created as part of the DPLA’s Digital Curation Program by the following students as part of Professor Anthony Cocciolo's course "Projects in Digital Archives" in the School of Information and Library Science at Pratt Institute: Kathleen Dowling, Laura Marte Piccini, and Matthew Schofield.

The goal of this book is to teach you to think like a computer scientist. This way of thinking combines some of the best features of mathematics, engineering, and natural science. Like mathematicians, computer scientists use formal languages to denote ideas (specifically computations). Like engineers, they design things, assembling components into systems and evaluating tradeoffs among alternatives. Like scientists, they observe the behavior of complex systems, form hypotheses, and test predictions.
