In this workshop we will go over the basics of text analysis from cleaning text from different corpora (Star Trek scripts, social media, & scientific abstracts) to generating simple visualizations such as wordclouds.
Digital image manipulation, social network analysis, and data mining can change our perceptions of the world around us, but they also require careful, critical use. This presentation will take arts & humanities practitioners through mapping, data mining, network anaysis, data visualiztaion, 3D rendering, computationally aided vision, and other digital methods in a variety of disciplines and tackle some of the critical issues for digital arts & humanities practitioners. We’ll also provide a clear list of IU resources that can support these efforts. Finally, we’ll all engage in a practical white-board-based activity that doesn’t require digital tools to demonstrate how analog methods can enhance understanding of some of these digital-methods applications in a variety of environments (including the classroom). Presented by Kalani Craig, Michelle Dalmau, and Tassie Gniady.
