Musical Theatre Studies Blog

By |2017-07-17T13:44:54+00:00Jul 17, 2017|

In 2007, MITH worked with former Associate Director Doug Reside to develop and host an online blog called Musical Theatre Studies, an online hub for news and discussion relating to the academic study of musical theatre which featured calls for papers, academic job opportunities, book reviews, and other news items of interest to the musical theatre scholarly community. The blog was maintained sporadically until 2009, and MITH now maintains it as a legacy website.

This was a Spring 2007 MITH Winnemore Digital Dissertation Fellowship project of Nadja Masura. Her dissertation, “Digital Theatre,” examined the ways that digital technology–such as animation, video, motion capture/sensing, and internet broadcasting–when used along with “live” co-present actors, expands our ideas of body, place, and community.

Collaborative Ajax-Based Modeling Platform

By |2017-02-05T21:25:42+00:00Feb 7, 2012|

CAMP stands for 'Collaborative, Ajax-Based, Modeling Platform.' As the name suggests, this tool is an open source, collaborative, 3-dimensional modeler that allows users with very little experience to generate a 3-dimensional model in their web browser which they can then allow other users to both view and edit. The tool was initially used to construct an international database of pre-nineteenth century theater buildings, but was designed to be intentionally generic so that scholars interested in structures of any sort could easily port it into their own projects.

Music Theatre Online

By |2017-02-05T21:25:45+00:00Feb 7, 2012|

Music Theatre Online, based at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities, is a digital archive of texts, images, video, and audio files relating to musical theater. The best printed editions of musical theater texts cannot fully provide the experience of simultaneous expression of verbal, musical, and terpsichorean languages so necessary to fully understand the art form. Using the multimedia capabilities of the modern web browser, we created a better framework for studying these important works of drama.
