 Marieke van Erp
Quantitative and Qualitative Analyses for the Humanities Using Text, Images, and Tables
This event took place on Monday 21 May 2018 at 11:30

Humanities research is more and more becoming an interdisciplinary affair; digitisation and computing present researchers with interesting opportunities but also with challenges. Opportunities about in digital archives that are available to humanities researchers in any possible modality: text, images, video, tables. However, the richness of these archives also brings about a major challenge in accessing these data in an intuitive and interpretable manner. In this talk, I will introduce the Digital Humanities Lab at KNAW Humanities Cluster and describe initiatives in the Dutch Digital Humanities research landscape. I will show how we apply linked data techniques as well as natural language processing to connect data from various archives in various formats and modalities and how this changes the daily practice of researchers as well as the challenges still ahead.
