I am really excited to participate in this free, web-based course offered by York Community College! It is based on the curriculum developed for an onsite Digital Humanities retreat held last year at CUNY, and is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
I am hoping that my work with this course will help me better understand the needs of potential authors for Panorama, and help to make it a go-to publication for art historians who want to publish the results of their digital humanities–based research.
This space is my experimental place for testing some of my tools and projects for the course. It will probably all look pretty ugly and not make any sense—so don’t judge me.
Here’s a (very partial) timeline I made with the “Timeline” tool from KnightLabs. I am working on figure out how to embed it into my WordPress site!
The 2017 Venice Biennale is open! About 50% of you are saying, “OMG I know, right?!” and the other 50% are saying “the Venice what, now?” And what does it have to do with Jess?
It’s officially summer! While things slow down in many other parts of the country, in Maine everything is speeding up. That’s especially true for Maine museums, whose big summer shows are opening this month, and for the writers who cover them.
Maine Museums Day was March 29, 2016!
The Maine Photo Project officially drew to a close on December 31, 2015. This report is not only about recording this major statewide cultural collaboration, it’s also about celebrating it.
South Portland is the BEST, and the arts and history are a huge part of that. How can we do even more?
This is my story about how growing up in Cleveland made me a museum person.
Back in the day, the Moving Panorama of Pilgrim’s Progress was a road show–its showrunners bundled it up and trundled it off to theaters in cities from New York and Boston to Detroit and New Orleans.
This year is only half over, and it has already been an amazing one for Maine cultural institutions working together. Collaboration among cultural institutions in Maine is the subject of my article in the current issue of Maine Policy Review.
The University Press of New England’s blog features the Moving Panorama of Pilgrim’s Progress!
The first advance copies of The Painters’ Panorama: Narrative, Art, and Faith in the Moving Panorama of Pilgrim’s Progress arrived in the mail yesterday! Thank you to the University Press of New England for sending it and creating such an elegant book.
The annual conference of the College Art Association is going on right now, and the Moving Panorama of Pilgrim’s Progress book is there!
One of the many things that will be keeping me busy through 2015 is the Maine Photo Project, a year-long statewide collaboration among some 26 museums, galleries, and historical societies.
As a (sort of) alumnus of the University of Southern Maine‘s (USM) American and New England Studies master’s program and the president of Maine Archives and Museums (MAM), I was dismayed to learn of the plan to eliminate the program.
Just in case you have ever thought to yourself, “Gosh, I wish I could hear Jessica Skwire Routhier talk about the Moving Panorama of Pilgrim’s Progress for forty-five solid minutes” . . . now you can!
That’d be Portland Maine.
Following are my remarks from the Annual Meeting of Maine Archives and Museums at the Collins Center for the Arts, University of Maine, Orono, on October 29, 2013. The theme was “Re-charge Your Mission: Ideas to Ignite and Inspire.”
Just like The Pilgrim’s Progress itself, it’s been a long journey, full of pitfalls, and we’re not there yet–but I’m so pleased to announce that I’ve passed a major gatepost on my quest to publish a book on The Moving Panorama of Pilgrim’s Progress!
