MITH Digital Dialogue: Aditi Muralidharan, Large Scale Text Analysis in the Digital Humanities: Methods and Challenges

To tackle increasingly large digitized archives of text, the digital humanities community has responded with an avid interest in text mining and visualization. Nevertheless, crucial information is being lost in translation. If text analysis toolkits are to be truly successful, information needs to start flowing the other way and computer scientists must learn from humanities scholars what humanistic text analysis really means. In this talk, Aditi Muralidharan, Ph.D. Candidate in Computer Science at UC Berkeley, will describe her experiences collaborating with English scholars to build the NEH-funded WordSeer text analysis toolkit, and discuss differences between the ways that computer scientists and humanities scholars view text analysis, and ways in which communication between the two fields can be improved. Talks free and open to the public! Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunches. {Will appear in FYI on Sep 19, 2011
