Alice Dijkstra: Funding Opportunities and Valorization/Impact
The primary aim of this workshop is to assess the opportunities and challenges involved in using trans-national, multi-lingual, and multi-media digital repositories (such as newspapers periodicals and radio/television broadcasts) in computational humanities research. The workshop will discuss a number of showcases that use advanced text mining methodologies to analyze “big data” repositories in the UK, Germany, Luxemburg, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the US. This inventory of the state-of-the-art serves as starting point for an exploration of the conceptual and technological horizons that open up ahead. The agenda setting ambition of this workshop is;
The workshop will serve as a benchmark for state-of-the-art in data mining research within a number of ongoing collaborative research projects, such as “Translantis: Digital Humanities Approaches to Reference Cultures; The Emergence of the United States in Public Discourse in the Netherlands, 1890-1990” (funded by a NWO-Horizon grant) and ”Asymmetrical Encounters: Digital Humanities Approaches to Reference Cultures in Europe, 1815–1992”(AsymEnc, funded by HERA).
