Collections as Data: Text Analysis with Voyant / Apr 19 / 11 AM / Wells W138


During the 2018-2019 academic year, the Institute for Digital Arts & Humanities will explore the theme Marking the Arts and HumanitiesBy extending last year’s theme on making, we hope to interweave making with marking to create countless opportunities to critically engage the sources and processes that comprise a layered approach to the theories and praxes underlining the digital arts and humanities. With a particular focus on materials and artifacts related to texts, visual and performative arts and music, we will delve into the notion of marking in a multimedia context. We'll examine the implications of markup though data cleaning, analysis, and visualizations, and ponder the possibilities of marking time and space. We'll also engage students and faculty through educational research workshops, digital pedagogical collaborations, and creative classroom endeavors. As we move in and out materials, methods and disciplines, we will highlight the inscriptions, overlays, and remixes that encourage digital arts & humanities scholars to make their mark in the world.


Are you working on a project with a significant digital component in pursuit of tenure and/or promotion? Do you need to jump-start a digital project? Whether you're an undergraduate student, graduate student, or faculty member, IDAH wants to help. Our Faculty Fellowship program and HASTAC Scholarship program are both designed to provide funding for digitally-inflected research projects, while our Incubator program brings all of the resources IU has to offer for faculty and graduate students engaged in digital arts & humanities projects into a single room for a week-long intensive workshop in July.


IDAH regularly reports on talks, workshops and other special events related to digital arts & humanities on the IU Bloomington campus through Twitter, Facebook, and our mailing list. If you'd like to hear about what we're doing on campus (and what our colleagues are up to), give us a follow or sign up to receive emails from us. We send weekly DH event roundups, reminders about upcoming features, and deadlines and save-the-dates for future conferences.
