Edge Opening Reception (The Edge Digital Research Commons) #EdgeOpens
4:00 DH Sandbox Chat, Norman Sandridge “Reading an Ancient Text ‘Holistically’ via the Digital Humanities” (Edge Digital Studio, Bostock Library, Level 1, West Campus, Duke University, campus map) #dhSandbox
Norman Sandridge will describe efforts to create a “holistic” online reading experience of Xenophon’s Education of Cyrus (c. 365 BCE): an experience that incorporates literary and historiographic perspectives, that features all available multimedia as well as syntactical and grammatical aides, that can work well in a traditional course, and that can award scholarly credit to contributors.
4:00 DH Sandbox Chat, Hannah Jacobs “Visualizing the New Woman” (Edge Digital Studio, Bostock Library Level 1, West Campus, Duke University campus map) #dhSandbox
Hannah Jacobs will detail how her ‘Visualizing the New Woman’ project investigates through text analysis and interactive information visualization definitions of the New Woman and the New Woman discursive network as represented in a collection of over 50 texts published in the United States and British Empire in 1893-1894. The project’s purpose is both to highlight the intricacies of the New Woman discourse and to explore digital techniques, with a focus on visualization that can be used to present macro- and microanalyses of corpora. The talk will focus on text analysis, digital methodology, and research visualization.

4:00 DH Studio Workshop, TBA
Our What I Do With Data series is aimed at inspiring innovative, exciting, and provocative data-based research projects. These presentations will be show-and-tell sessions that profile projects by artists, researchers, and project teams that demonstrate how data and data-based tools can be productively, and creatively, used for critical research. Each presenter will present his/her/their project and then sit for an audience-led Q&A.
The Digital Studio Workshops will be hands-on introductions to the tools we have in the Digital Studio and tools being used by our Digital Studio Project teams. Attendees will learn not only how to use the tools but also tips for using (and/or hacking) the tools to conduct critical research.
Our DH Sandbox Chats will be more intimate events designed to foster discussion, review, critique, and conversation about digital humanities projects. Each Chat will feature one or two presentations from a wide range of students, scholars, and professionals working on Digital Humanities projects that are either nearly finished, proposed, or in progress. A casual but critically-focused dialogue will follow.
Special Events will include
- Digital Public Humanities presentations and workshops focused on tools for finding, conducting, and sharing research online. We will look at how social media, online scholarly networks, and web publishing tools can be successfully used to support your research project.
- Keynote Presentations by Digital Scholarship leaders and innovators.
- Roundtable events with teams of scholars discussing such topics as digital project rights management, digital dissertations, and the creative use of data in critical scholarly research.
