By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- Current study results on Information Technology have been published. According to news reporting out of New Brunswick, New Jersey, by VerticalNews editors, the research stated, "The paper addresses the purpose of the digital archive by discussing the digital letter archives as a genre of digital collection and as the place for remediation of archival thought. Using textual and documentary analysis to describe successive prototypes of digital letter archives from the mid-1990s to date, it addresses assumptions inherent in their development. Analysis."
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Rutgers State University, "While the paper presents a whole range of letter collections from the first and the second wave of digital development and projects from across the digital humanities spectrum, it uses 'archive stories' that epitomise context and trends of digital humanities and digital letter collections in order to develop programmatic statements about digital rewriting of letter cultures. Remediation has poetic and aesthetic in addition to informational, instrumental and documentary dimensions in letter archives. There are multiple resistant layers in play attached to the epistolary form in the context of digital archive tied to the materiality and the letter form itself. Digital archives point to new possibilities for reading letters as material traces of social interactions developed through emphasis of interpretive literary and cultural histories in digital letter collections of the first wave, and recovering networks of relations of the second wave."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The possibilities for 'distant reading' in the next generation of digital letter archives are presented in concluding programmatic statements."
