What is digital humanities?
digital humanities: (noun) Is a methodology of analyzing or interpreting sources for the study of history, philosophy, linguistics, literature and the arts using computing to find new understanding. This may including doing linguistic analysis, network analysis, GIS analysis, text mining, and digital publishing of traditional humanities source material to find new methods and new conclusions.
My current digital humanities projects include:
- Norfolk 1917– a digital history student project begun in 2017 by the U.S. Military History students at Norfolk State University. The site collects biographies of Norfolk’s World War I veterans and is updated annually with new biographies.
- “How did Antislavery Women Use Portraits to Represent Themselves in the Transatlantic Antislavery Movement?” Women and Social Movements, 20 no. 2 (Sept. 2016). (subscription access only)
- A geospatial and network analysis of abolitionist women’s correspondence networks
