Vanderbilt Center for Digital Humanities

Thursdays, 2:00-4:00 pm

Whether you’re a seasoned DHer with a specific problem to troubleshoot, or a neophyte hoping to learn more about digital tools and methods relevant to your research, drop by the DH Center on a Thursday afternoon to talk with one of Vanderbilt’s resident experts in any of the following areas.

All levels of inquiry are welcome.

  • February 9           Research Data Management 

Learn more about managing your research digitally.  Areas of consultation include citation management systems, organizing digital files, using spreadsheets and databases, and more.

  • February 16         TECH A-TEAM

Talk about your project idea with a panel of consultants representing a broad range of technological support and computing at Vanderbilt.

  • February 23         Data Visualization & text analysis 

Get started with basic data visualization tools or explore possibilities for computational text analysis.

  • March   2             “Tiny Data”   (not yet confirmed)

In contrast to “Big Data,” i.e. enormous data sets scaled for computational analysis, “Tiny Data” is data scaled for the qualitative, human-level analyses that characterize humanistic inquiry.  By quantifying qualitative observations, a Tiny Data approach supports the analysis of ambiguous, deeply nuanced, and non-linear sources.  Learn more about data-centered approaches to close reading.
