Scrolls of the Mongol Invasions of Japan

2020-12-21T07:40:42-05:00

The Scrolls of the Mongol Invasions of Japan website is a re-development of several projects developed by Professor Tom Conlan in Princeton Department of East Asian Studies, devoted to understanding the Mongol Invasions of Japan in 1274 and 1281. The failure of the invasions gave rise to the notion of the “divine wind” or Kamikaze, although an exploration of the invasions reveals that the Japanese defeated the Mongols with little need of divine, or meteorological intervention. The website invites users to explore and compare four different scrolls depicting the Mongol invasions of Japan and provides videos of the events around the invasions of 1274 and 1281.

The project builds upon several Flash-based projects developed by Professor Conlan at Bowdoin College. This current project, a collaboration with Ben Johnston from the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning, takes advantage or IIIF image technologies and the OpenSeaDragon Image Viewer.

Hidden History of Hollywood

2021-01-04T09:51:47-05:00
“Only the colored people themselves can determine their political, social and economical future.” William Monroe Trotter
This course uncovers the roots of racial injustice in Hollywood; the secret, but cardinal role Woodrow Wilson played in the production and distribution of D. W. Griffith’s The Birth of a Nation that led directly to the rebirth of the KKK and increased violence against Afro-Americans; and William Monroe Trotter’s fight against the state propaganda film. Wilson’s policy of segregation was adapted by Hollywood as a self-censoring industry regulation of representation. Black people could only appear on screen as subservient and marginal characters, never as equals, partners or leaders. This code, Wilson’s legacy, has become second nature to Hollywood.

Cinema in Times of Pandemic

2021-01-04T09:51:33-05:00
This new Princeton University course is dedicated to the study of critical film curation.
The pandemic brought a total disruption to traditional film production, distribution, curation and canonization. Could this disruption be turned into a creative subversion of the strong industrial and commercial aspect of American filmmaking? The formation of the American film canon is an ongoing struggle between civil rights activism and a Jim Crow system of representation. The responsibility of film studies is to assist this creative struggle with sophisticated and open minded film curation and canon formation. With a readiness to be inspired by the unfamiliar from systemically injured and overlooked groups, this studio course will give students the opportunity to practice these virtues by curating brand new films, some not yet distributed, as well as unacknowledged, undistributed classics.

IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework)

2020-09-25T12:25:07-04:00

The IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework) standard opens up a landscape of new opportunities for working with media in coursework.  The McGraw Center has partnered with faculty, the University Library, the Princeton Art Museum, and the Visual Resources Collection in the department of Art & Archaeology, to take advantage of this standard.

Mirador integration in Canvas

Mirador is a popular , open-source web-based, multi-window image viewing platform with the ability to zoom, display, compare and annotate image collections from institutions around the world and here on campus.  The McGraw Center offers an implementation of the Mirador Image Viewer asa tool integration (LTI) with the Canvas course management system.

Course collections in McGraw Commons (WordPress)

A plugin developed for the McGraw Commons, McGraw’s WordPress platform for course blogs, allows IIIF image collection “manifests” to be added to the Media Library of any course blog and individual images from those collections to be embedded in student blog posts.

Tannowa Collection: The Kyoto Princeton Project

2020-12-21T07:37:57-05:00

Kyoto University and Princeton University have initiated a joint project in March 2020 in order to deepen the knowledge and awareness of Japanese history and culture throughout the world. The goal is to disseminate images, transcriptions, translations, and research about Japanese documents owned by the Kyoto University Museum.

The first set of documents that are translated are 53 records of the Tannowa collection. They cover the period from the early thirteenth through the early sixteenth century, and provide insight into the actions of the Tannowa, a warrior family who resided in the eponymous Tannowa estate in Izumi province. This collection is unique in that it provides, in great detail, evidence for the actions of the warriors of the central provinces near Kyoto, which rarely survive. These document reveal much about social and political conditions during the turbulent fourteenth century, when wars were fought between the Northern and Southern courts in Izumi from 1331 through 1392. The most remarkable documents in this collection include edicts from chancelleries of the noble Kujō house. In addition, a series of documents by Kusunoki Masanori, found in scroll two, are noteworthy, as are records from Ashikaga Takauji, the founder of Japan’s second warrior government. Finally, the latest documents recount the Tannowa during wars of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries as well.

Crowdsourcing Trenton

2020-09-25T10:38:52-04:00

Crowdsourcing Trenton is a project related to the Trenton Project, a project researching topics relating to the history of Trenton in the 1960s. Members of the Trenton community who might have insight into the events that took place in Trenton during the 1960’s and the people involved with those events, are invited to contribute information. Over the past several years, the Trenton project has collected hundreds of photos from dozens of sources. The images we’ve found have told us much about Trenton in the 1960s and answered many questions about the events of April 1968, the main focus of our work. But some photos raise further questions.
