Kennen Sie schon … die Voice of the Shuttle?

Logo der Voice of the Shuttle (

Die VOS, kuratiert von Alan Liu, Anglist an der Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia, San­ta Bar­bara, ist eine umfan­gre­iche geis­teswis­senschaftliche Daten­bank für Forschung und Lehre: Sie enthält Links zu Online-Zeitschriften, Glos­saren, Textarchiv­en, Stel­lenange­boten, Online-Kursen, Kon­feren­zankündi­gun­gen und anderem mehr.

The Voice of the Shut­tle began in late 1994 as an intro­duc­tion to the Web for human­ists at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia, San­ta Bar­bara.

It grew to over 70 pages of links to human­i­ties and human­i­ties-relat­ed resources on the Inter­net.

Its mis­sion has been to pro­vide a struc­tured and briefly anno­tat­ed guide to online resources that at once respects the estab­lished human­i­ties dis­ci­plines in their pro­fes­sion­al orga­ni­za­tion and points toward the trans­for­ma­tion of those dis­ci­plines as they inter­act with the sci­ences and social sci­ences and with new dig­i­tal media.

VoS empha­sizes both pri­ma­ry and sec­ondary (or the­o­ret­i­cal) resources, and defines its audi­ence as peo­ple who have some­thing to learn from a high­er-edu­ca­tion, pro­fes­sion­al approach to the human­i­ties (which in prac­tice has includ­ed stu­dents and instruc­tors from the ele­men­tary school, high school, and gen­er­al pop­u­la­tion sec­tors).
