21 Nov 4Humanities@UCSB Meeting
Thursday, November 21 / 12:00 PM
4Humanities@UCSB will hold its second meeting of the 2013-14 academic year on Thursday, November 21 (noon – 1:30, South Hall 2509). Following up on its previous meeting, which focused on the “Heart of the Matter” report produced by the American Academy of Arts & Science’s Commission on the Humanities and Social Sciences, this meeting will be devoted specifically to designing a technical and interpretive strategy for digital-humanities analyses of the WhatEvery1Says corpus of statements about the humanities that 4Humanities has been gathering. In particular, we will strategize “topic modeling” the WhatEvery1Says corpus as well as implementing other methods of text analysis (and visual analysis) designed to discover new facets of the U.S. and worldwide discussion of the humanities. If you are interested in learning about such methods of analysis as they might help support humanities advocacy, please come to the meeting.
