The field of digital humanities is dynamic -- but how has the way
we write about digital humanities changed? This talk focuses on using
text mining techniques to analyze the two recent Debates in the Digital Humanities volumes published in 2012 and 2016; as well as several other DH anthologies published between 2004 and 2016.
All welcome and there will be drinks and discussion after the talk. Please note that registration is required.
Her primary digital scholarship interests are:
- Developing curriculum for graduate students, staff, and faculty to learn about digital humanities/digital scholarship (aka DH & DS). The curriculum that she co-founded, Demystifying Digital Humanities is ongoing at the University of Washington and at the Sherman Centre for Digital Scholarship, where she was a CLIR-DLF Postdoctoral Fellow, and you can see her recent slidesets at Slideshare.
- Digital scholarship service infrastructure: what’s needed in order to make things (programs, classes, centres, etc.) successful — and how to improve things that aren’t working quite as intended.
- Linked open data, aka semantic web, aka RDF: the platform that she's using to build her own digital humanities project, Visible Prices — a database of price information from literary and historical sources.
