Ed Summers (University of Maryland) has published a post on his blog about his collaborations with Matt Kirschenbaum’s Critical Topics in Digital Studies course. The goal of the collaboration between Summers and Kirschenbaum is to “provide a gentle introduction to the use of network analysis, aka graphs, in the digital humanities, while providing the students with some hands on experience using some tools.”
Summers breaks down how working with the demonstration visualizations he created, using MITH’s Research Explorer data, as well as sharing some of his inspiration for the class project (such as Miriam Posner’s Cytoscape tutorials, and a recent conversation with Posner, Thomas Padilla, and Scott Weingart on network visualization pedagogy).
This post was produced through a cooperation between Sarah Ames, Pompilia Burcica, Nickoal Eichmann-Kalwara, Kevin Gunn, Heather Hill, Stephen Lingrell, Jordan Sly, and Abigail Sparling.
