Introduction to HTR: Handwritten Text Recognition Technologies of Medieval Manuscripts
Grant details: AA-277700-21
Title: Introduction to HTR: Handwritten Text Recognition Technologies of Medieval Manuscripts
Abstract: A revolution has slowly begun in the study of historical documents: Machine Learning tools have been developed to allow for the automatic transcription of documents. Over the last decade, these tools can now help assist in the production of texts from medieval manuscripts at previously unobtainable levels of accuracy. Today, libraries have used these tools to make their collections searchable, while researchers have sped up the process of creating editions of texts and adopted them for the study of medieval documents. The course will offer an introduction into some of these ongoing projects, but more importantly provide an introduction into the practice of studying medieval documents with Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) technologies. The course will have two main parts: 4 online sessions and a three-day in person workshop in Vienna. During the first phase, participants will be introduced to both the theory of handwritten text recognition and its practical application using the Transkribus (transkribus.eu) tool. We will then work in four groups, focusing on four different periods and languages: Carolingian Latin, late medieval Latin, late medieval German, and late medieval Czech. Each group will have its own supervisor and its goal will be to train an HTR model for each type of writing. During the in-person workshop in Vienna, we will finalize the four projects and publish our results online: both the transcriptions and Handwritten Text Recognition models. Additionally, we will also visit libraries in Vienna to see selected manuscripts in person. Finally, we will test other machine learning tools for their automatic transcription outcomes and use other digital tools. The course will be taught by a team of experts in HTR, medieval manuscript studies and Latin, German and Czech philology. At the end of the course, you will receive a certificate.
Date Range: October-December 2022

A. S. Yahuda and Arabic Manuscripts Seminar
Grant details: AA-277700-21
Title: A. S. Yahuda and Arabic Manuscripts Seminar
Abstract: Abraham Shalom Yahuda (1877-1951) is one of the most enigmatic, influential, and overlooked Jewish intellectuals of the twentieth century. Born into an Iraqi-Jewish and German-Jewish family in Ottoman Jerusalem and educated in Germany, Yahuda was a scholar of Hebrew and Arabic texts and held the first-ever university professorship in Jewish studies, at the University of Madrid. For more than three decades, Yahuda made his living as a manuscript dealer, buying rare Arabic, Persian, and Turkish manuscripts and selling them to libraries and collectors in Europe and North America, including the British Museum, the Irish-American collector Cheater Beatty, Princeton University, the University of Heidelberg, the University of Michigan, Yale University, and the U.S. Army Medical College (now the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland). At the end of his life, he bequeathed his remaining collection to the National Library of Israel, including the archive of Isaac Newton. Examining all Yahuda’s activities from three-hundred-sixty degrees reveals a network of local cosmopolitans and entrepreneurs who capitalized on their knowledge and access to antiquities as the old imperial order crumbled. His correspondence provides essential information on the provenance of Middle Eastern and South Asian manuscripts, information that is otherwise difficult and painstaking to reconstruct.

NEH Humanizing Technology Course Design Institute
Grant details: AC-284519-22
Title: NEH Humanizing Technology Course Design Institute
Author: Jody Greene
Author: Kendra Dority
Abstract: Over Summer 2022, an instructional community of faculty and graduate students assembled to collectively design the five new courses for the Certificate in the Humanities, each tailored to a distinct General Education requirement. These courses draw from and integrate themes that connect directly with the impacts of the biotechnological, computational, and data scientific technologies engineering students study and develop in their careers post-graduation. As an overarching goal, the courses inspire students to cultivate a sense of epistemic humility — to decenter the present moment, problematize conventional narratives, and reckon with the unintended consequences of their field. Each course had a set of course leads (drawn from faculty and graduate students) who worked together to develop a syllabus and assignments and shepherded the course through the course approval process.

Care, Engineering, Technology, and Global Justice
Grant details: AC-50156-12
Title: Care, Engineering, Technology, and Global Justice
Author: Indira Nair
Abstract: This talk explored some of the awareness, thinking and competencies that the global citizen of today needs in general. It touched on the aspects that all of us need to reflect on as we design or make decisions everyday about technology- care and justice in its design and use. Starting with a definition of care, the talk articulated some properties - complexity, systems, interdependence - of the technological systems that we have come to depend upon and how we could design, use and spread these with care and justice for a sustainable world. A call for reflection on the role of technology and science in today's living, in our thinking, and how to do it with care in our individual dealings and how care at this level is a pre-requisite to global justice in the deployment of technology. The primary purpose of this reflection was to consider whether we are asking the right questions, solving the right problems, and bringing the right perspectives, starting from our various disciplinary points of view.

Appropriate and Alternative, Technology and Life
Grant details: AC-50156-12
Title: Appropriate and Alternative, Technology and Life
Author: Carl Mitcham
Abstract: Dr. Mitcham discussed "What is "appropriate" about appropriate technology?" The question requires more than a technological or engineering response. The abbreviation of "appropriate technology" (AT) can also be read as "alternative technology." The second reading suggests a more radical approach to the same think about what we are doing as we replace the natural with the built environment and turn the world into an artifact. It is thus useful to consider the dialogue between these two terms - using two approaches to one particular kind of technology, energy technology. Whether and to what extent we can develop an appropriate or an alternative energy technology will be crucial to the kind of world-artifact we will construct. This contrast will further distinguish two approaches to an ethical assessment of energy: Type I energy ethics is grounded in a belief that increases in energy production and use are both humanizing and civilizing; Type II energy ethics questions this belief and argues that beyond a certain point, energy production and use become counterproductive. Our technological way of life is currently determined by Type I energy ethics, although Type II energy ethics deserves a hearing. A provocative illustration of the Type II approach to energy will reference energy ethics and policy in China. In the end, a case for the pursuit not just of an appropriate technology but an alternative technology and way of life was made.

Title: Presentation of results and evaluations of the course on Mind, Consciousness, and Machines (originally-Embodied cognitive science: the impact of robotics.)
Author: Ana Nieves Rosa
Author: Anderson Brown
Author: J. Fernando Vega
Abstract: The results and evaluations of the first course were presented to the NEH Convergence group and any interested professors. Materials used in the first interdisciplinary course were presented and discussed so that the participants could utilize the materials in their courses, if applicable. The results indicated that the students prefer to meet with all of the professors in all of the class meetings. They found meeting with the professors separately, did not demonstrate nor support the goals of the project or course. For this reason, one-third way through the course, then professors met with all of the students for all of the class meetings. In addition to the originally planned seminar, the course team members added information on the results and evaluations of the first team-taught course offered under the NEH grant.
