Mock grant proposal to support the improvement of the British Museum’s existing provenance linked data for its collection of 100,000+ Egyptian-made cultural artifacts. The expansion of the British Museum’s provenance linked data will allow the museum’s collection to be more fully represented in linked data visualizations, while making visualizations of the artifacts themselves more comprehensive, improving scholars’ capacity to research the histories of these artifacts and those of the cultures that produced them.
Information gathered from Lincoln Center’s Facebook Insights was used to identify their most successful posts. A strategy was then established to further boost popular content and promote visitor engagement.
This talk will describe digital scholarship librarians’ use of digital pedagogy and changes in the field that will affect these librarians’ practice.
This video is part of my final project for Data Librarianship. It is the longer of two videos we had to create to demonstrate skills we learned in class. This video describes how to upload a dataset and create a simple map on Carto, a browser-based, freemium mapping platform.
To celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, this digital humanities project maps the letters in both Frankenstein and Dracula providing a representation of Gothic literature during the 19th Century.
This project originated as a paper reporting on the experiences of archival producers in the field of historical documentary production. Based on those conversations, I created a visualization of data comparing gender and production credits across American Experience documentaries from 2015 to 2017.
This project maps the recorded history of object repatriation through NAGPRA, the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, with the hope of elucidating temporal and geographic trends in repatriation requests and concessions.
Our project considered the benefits and innovation linked open data has on museum collections. We reviewed how lod structures can be used to leverage and unite museum collections by examining how lod works, what museum projects utilize lod, and future possibilities.
What is crowdsourcing and how does it apply to GLAMs (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums)? This poster explores the definition of crowdsourcing in cultural heritage institutions and the advantages and disadvantages of using crowdsourcing in these contexts.
This project analyzes the circulation of the term “fake news” as a rhetorical device, used to make political assertions about the truth of various stories and sources. These sources range from longstanding and popular news outlets to more recent news websites and social media. Across these sources, we examine the use and users of the term “fake news”, its frequency of use, and the sources and topics that are described as “fake news”.
By using web-scraping tools, I obtained data from fan-curated wikia pages concerning several comic book publishers. By assessing this data at several different points from 1995-2015, I sought to see if the proportion of women writers and artists in the comic book industry was increasing, if women artists and writers tend to more often work on female-fronted titles, and if that changes based on if the title is creator-owned or work-for-hire.
This project examines definitions of digital humanities that were collected at the Day of DH conferences between 2009-2014, in order to identify themes and trends in the way the field has been defined over these years.
This project examines how network visualizations can be used in literary analysis. I created a series of network graphs for three comics by B.K. Vaughn and used them to analyze the character structure in the comics and across Vaughn’s work.
This study aims to shed light on conversations of surveillance over the past 40 years of American discourse, using a corpus of Congressional records, mainstream and independent news sources, movie scrips and reviews, and archival materials. By comparing general and specific sentiment measurement across these various sources, we examine points of similarity and difference in attitude across the present and past, cultural and countercultural, institutional and popular with regard to surveillance—watching surveillance, as it were, through assemblages of text and data.
A frequent cultural topic is if women are regularly portrayed in mass media, and if they are present behind the scenes. Using data analysis, I looked at mass-marketed comics to see if women are increasingly being represented on both sides of the page.
Highlighting contributions to the Linked Jazz project, including the creation of linked data from historical photo metadata and, more recently, performance history data from Carnegie Hall and online jazz discographies.
In this digital era, the US Copyright office is not keeping up with technological development, which is keeping it from protecting the copyright of artists. They are the tortoise to technology’s hare, who keeps moving the finish line further ahead on the track. As technology alters our society and how we define visual art, how will visual artists control their copyright?
