Revistas culturales 2.0: About

The web portal Revistas culturales 2.0 is a virtual research environment for all those who are interested in historic hispanophone magazines. While nowadays the interactivity of the Web 2.0 is mostly used to publish contemporary online-magazines, we use this technology to research historic cultural magazines of the modernism and avant-garde periods. Traditional methods of research usually entail discussing one or two titles through intensive close reading; within this project, we try to enrich classical hermeneutical analysis by allowing readers to compare many hispanophone magazines at once in an online environment. On the one hand, Revistas culturales 2.0 gives an insight into projects digitizing hispanophone magazines, on the other hand we want to show how this material can be analyzed with new tools and methods provided by the Digital Humanities.

Revistas culturales 2.0 allows you to annotate our collection of digitized magazines, which are provided by our co-operation partner Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut - Preußischer Kulturbesitz, Berlin.

Judith's Review of Reviews: Vida Nueva

Fittingly for what it was to contain, Vida Nueva began on the 12th of June 1898 just as the Desastre del 98 was unfolding, in which the last of Spain’s significant colonies were lost to the United States.[1] The weekly newspaper soon came to epitomize the spirit of the Generación del 98, the writers, artists and thinkers who sought to critique Spanish society and rebel against the established traditions, mentalities and aesthetics which had led to Spain’s current lamented

In scientific research on periodicals the question of how to manage and how to publish the mass of data we produce is getting more important. José Calvo Tello will contribute to help us to find a solution in a practical way by giving the DH-workshop "Publishing Data on GitHub" (in english). Focusing on the semantic content of data Ulrike Henny-Krahmer presents the quite popular method of how to structure and research a mass of textual data in the workshop "Einführung in Topic Modeling" (in german).

Dark Humour in Fin-de-Siècle Chile: The Revealing Tidbits of Luz i Sombra and Instantáneas

For Europeans, Spring is traditionally seen as the time for birth of new life, symbolized astrologically with the Sun entering the Aries constellation on the Spring equinox. Pagan celebrations to welcome in the longer days centred around fertility symbols, celebrations which were later absorbed into the Christianity of the Spanish-speaking world.

The Wonderful World of Advertising in Gente Vieja

The magazine Gente Vieja, as the title might suggest, took pride in being a platform for an older generation of writers, at a time when a new wave of modernist literary and artistic styles, associated with the younger generation, were very much in vogue. Far from trying to compete with these younger writers, the contributors to Gente Vieja made a feature of their seniority, with the first issue proudly stating the age of the writer alongside their name.
