Lessons Learned: Digitization of Cooke County Ledgers

Description: This paper describes a grant project to digitize Cooke County, Texas ledgers. The project was funded in part by the National Historic Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) and involves digitizing and hosting several rare and unique collections representative of the Civil War. The UNT Archives partnered with the UNT Libraries Digital Projects Unit (DPU), which managed all stages of the digitization. This paper describes and examines the process the DPU implemented to digitize the Cooke County ledger collection; in doing so, it provides insight into the problems one might encounter, as well as recommendations for institutions that may be considering similar digital projects.

Making the Man: 'Suiting' Masculinity in Performance Art

Description: This paper examines research on the significance of clothing, specifically, the "men's suit," in select examples of contemporary American performance art. Drawing on sociology and art history, it considers the suit as a form of communication, and it suggests that performance artists Chris Burden, Paul McCarthy, and Vanessa Beecroft have used the "men's suit" to explore and communicate something about masculinity as a socially and culturally constructed hegemony.
