Vincent Van Gogh: The Letters

The letters written by Vincent Van Gogh have appeared many times before, but this is the first time they have appeared as part of a complete digital edition. This fascinating collection was created by the Van Gogh Museum and the Huygens Institute, and the letters were edited by Leo Jansen, Hans Luijten and Nineke Bakker. On the site, visitors can view 902 letters from and to Van Gogh, complete with detailed annotations and illustrations from the master himself. First-time visitors should definitely click on the “Quick Guide” to get an overview of the site’s holdings, and then they should also take a look at the sections “Van Gogh as a letter-writer”, “Correspondents”, “Biographical & historical context”, and “Publication History”. The letters include those from many of his contemporaries, including Paul Gauguin, and of course, those lovely pieces of writing from his brother, Theo. Users can also use the search engine here to look around by keyword. Finally, visitors can also look through the “About this Edition” area to learn about the reading texts included here, the translations, and the annotations.

Journal of Aesthetics & Culture

Journal of Aesthetics & Culture is a peer reviewed Open Access journal that aims to develop inter-disciplinary theoretical models as applied to human science research on aesthetic questions, understood in their broadest meaning, as a means to transcend traditional subject boundaries and to integrate regional, national, international and global perspectives; and finally, to also bridge the gaps between art and technology, between high brow culture and popular culture, and between aesthetics and politics.

Contributions covering a wide range of subject areas are welcome, as well as both empirical and theoretical investigations within specific subject areas. Contributions can embark from historical or contemporary perspectives, as well from more overarching research into aesthetics and culture from a philosophical/scientific/theoretical point of departure, or based on the role aesthetic phenomena play within the production of culture at large.

Content freely accessible in HTML and PDF format. Please click here to access.

Langston Hughes Papers

A portion of the Langston Hughes Papers are available on Yale University’s Digital Library site. Hughes’ complete papers (1862-1980) are comprised of “letters, manuscripts, personal items, photographs, clippings, artworks, and objects” and are available at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. For the digitized collection, visitors should click on the “See All Images” option on the left hand side of the page to view the nine pages of thumbnail images.  Each thumbnail image can be expanded so that visitors can view each image in detail.  Each document can also be saved, by clicking “Save” above the thumbnail.  The saved images are then moved to a folder that can hold saved images to be ordered, or just viewed again.  The folder is called “My Group”, and can be found below the pink menu near the top of the page. Visitors shouldn’t miss the beautiful poem entitled “For A’lelia” that Hughes wrote for A’Lelia Walker after she died in 1931, and which was subsequently read at her funeral.  It can be found in the second row of images, in the first spot, when “See All Images” is selected on the homepage.
