Read/Download - A Digital Humanities Discussion Group
If you want to know how and why computers are being used to analyze literature, this is the session for you! The DH discussion group, Read/Download, will be talking about a very short article by Matt Jockers, “The Ancient World in Nineteenth-Century Fiction,” which boils down, in simple terms, some of the major DH methods, including topic modeling and sentiment analysis. It is a great opportunity to learn about the kinds of arguments one can make with computational evidence. All experience levels and disciplines are warmly invited; no technical background needed. Plus, free cookies and coffee!
Read/Download is a discussion group that inhabits the perceived boundary between “traditional” reading and computational analysis of culture. Participants will examine topics in humanistic study that have been touched by technology and weigh the implications for art and scholarship. Sessions are anchored by short suggested readings and may include layman-friendly code analysis. All are welcome, and format is flexible: participants interested in doing guest presentations are warmly encouraged to contact Dan Johnson (email@example.com) about possibilities. BYO laptop optional.
