Research

Priorities: Collective histories, revealing hidden communities, interactive interfaces, support services for scholars, and educational resources

Penumbra:Research (Penumbra:R) is focused on the use of digital technology and archival sciences to preserve performing arts works as well as develop digital humanities projects. Although the primary goal is to preserve and share dance-related content, all Penumbra:R output is intended to applicable for other disciplines as well. There is also occasional consulting performed for non-dance subjects such as East Asian history. Currently, Penumbra:R does not do original development of tools but instead customizes, re-purposes, and mashes up existing services to serve specific needs.
