Title:

A Digital Humanities that Enables: Interdisciplinary Collaboration for Cultural-centric Data Science with HTRC Data Capsule

Abstract:

In this talk, I will discuss how HTRC Data Capsule has enabled one particular line of work in digital humanities: treating textual resources as cultural data and leveraging quantitative evidence or computational models to address historical and cultural inquiries, or what I call cultural-centric data science. I will demonstrate the nature of such work by introducing two recently published projects (in Post-45 and Critical Inquiry) that used results I helped produce with resources in the Data Capsule. With those example projects in mind, I will then discuss the main challenges as well as practical tips from my experience of interdisciplinary collaboration. I will conclude by sharing my thoughts on possible future directions to further realize the potentials of digital humanities as a diverse and inclusive field.
