Programme

Bentham Hackathon

Start: Oct 20, 2017 5:00:00 PM
End: Oct 22, 2017 6:00:00 PM

UCL have teamed up with IBM to hack the writings of the philosopher and social reformer Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832). Bentham wrote on a vast array of subjects including democratic reform, religion, crime and economics and his ideas on education inspired the founders of UCL.

Black Abolitionists and the Digital Humanities

Start: Nov 1, 2017 5:30:00 PM
End: Nov 1, 2017 6:30:00 PM

 Black abolitionists made an indelible mark on nineteenth century Britain. Their lectures were held in famous meeting halls, taverns, the houses of wealthy patrons, theatres, and churches across the country: we inevitably and unknowingly walk past sites with a rich history of Black Britain every day.

What might a corpus of spoken data tell us about language?

Start: Nov 15, 2017 5:30:00 PM
End: Nov 15, 2017 7:30:00 PM

The last two decades have seen corpus resources grow in scale, breadth, representativeness and linguistic variety. Thus an online survey of primarily English language corpora documents around 100 publicly-available corpora. Corpora are sources of three types of evidence: discovery (evidence of unknown phenomena), distribution (relative proportions of phenomena), and interaction (how distributions may correlate or interact).
