From Visualisation to Analysis: Exploring an integrated approach to digital heritage imaging

Start: May 11, 2016 5:30:00 PM
End: May 11, 2016 6:30:00 PM

With the upsurge in availability of digital photography-based recording techniques, 3D output is increasingly visible in the academic and public domains.  However, while often cost-effective and offering the opportunity for real-time dissemination, the potential of the application of such techniques is not always fully capitalised upon. Drawing on experience ranging in scale from macro 3D imaging of artefacts to drone-based landscape modelling, in this talk Dr Sarah Duffy will explore an integrated approach to heritage recording and visualisation.

Scale as Deformance: The Particulars of 'Big Data' in the Humanities Research

Start: May 18, 2016 5:30:00 PM
End: May 18, 2016 6:30:00 PM

While there have been many advocates in the digital humanities for methods and projects that shuttle between scales, debates about "big data," "distant reading," or "macroanalysis" continue to dominate both scholarly and popular conversations about the field. Taking the Viral Texts Project at Northeastern University as a central example and drawing from discussions across a wide disciplinary spectrum, Professor Ryan Cordell will grapple with the meaning of scale in humanities research and challenge the popular metaphor of the macroscope, which requires a fractal notion of textual systems.
