New reviews: emotions, Achilles, crime and punishment and Dominicans

frevert

We start with Emotional Lexicons: Continuity and Change in the Vocabulary of Feeling 1700-2000 by Ute Frevert. Anna Jordanous believes this book’s strengths lie in its contextual diversity and in the thoroughness of the compilation and usage of reference sources (no. 1682, with response here). Next up is Elizabeth Vandiver’s Stand in the Trench, Achilles: Classical Receptions in British Poetry of the Great War, which Marguerite Johnson recommends as a truly successful interdisciplinary achievement (no. 1681).

Sketchfab Will Now Allow for the Download and 3D Printing of Their 3D Models

s11

Earlier this morning we touched on an announcement from CGTrader, one of the leaders in the 3D modelling space. As we mentioned in that article, it will be the 3D printable models which drive the market for 3D printers, as content is king. It turns out that CGTrader is not the only rapidly growing model repository. A venture-backed company with offices in both Paris and New York City, Sketchfab is also rapidly expanding, and has […]

How the hell did this happen? The assignment was to write a short 3-5 page report on a historical architecture tour the class […]

How do people get new ideas? Isaac Asimov on creativity #TBT

In this never-before published essay, Isaac Asimov addresses the question How do people get new ideas?. While the 1959 language seems quaint (and rather male!) the thoughts he puts forward are still relevant today and the subject of this week’s #throwbackthursday post. So, what is needed to generate new ideas according to Asimov? The ability […]

I Voted: Voting Information Project

historytech

If you haven’t already figured it out, I can be a bit of a cynic. And becoming more so as the last ads of the campaign cycle through. (I’m looking at you Kansas Governor Brownback. Seriously?

So next Tuesday is already on my calendar. The […]
