What I proposed to do for my final project perhaps is definitely use the literary text: Visualization. Since I was able to connect more with the visual section part of the class: Mapping projects and Sherlock Holmes, I would choose to do something that would allow me to create, design, display and show to the class. So I think the best one to do would be to “create a digital work of remediation, criticism, or literature.”
I brainstormed an idea about what I could do for this project. I was going to use digital humanities with a comparison of if the text, words and story ideas of books has changed throughout time or not. I was thinking of comparing between the “old and the modern.” Now I’m not sure of which books to use yet, but I did select some books that I’ve read, remembered for the most part, and enjoyed reading. For the modern, I choose Sula by Toni Morrison, Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and maybe some of the Harry Potter books. For the old, I choose Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Macbeth, Romeo&Juliet, and Hamlet by William Shakespeare. So I haven’t decided which books to compare yet. For a visualization project, I was thinking about possibly doing what we saw in class on Tuesday, April 10th. Creating some type of creation on the computer using, I don’t know what that website is called, but something like that to compare using texts, pictures, narration and other ideas to show how the books we read has changed or not. But, I am always up for new ideas or suggestions.
