Humanities/Data+ Panel
Data Dialogue

This talk will feature the work of the three digital humanities Data+ teams from Summer 2018.
Ashley Murray (Chemistry/Math) and Michelle Gao (Statistics/Economics) will present the work of Team 1: Poverty in Writing & Images. This team analyzed how the meaning and use of the word "poverty" changed in presidential documents from the 1930s to the present.
Sandra Luksic (Philosophy, Political Science) will be presenting the work of Team 6: Women's Spaces, which explored how women are depicted both physically and figuratively in women's magazines, seeking to consider what role magazines play in the imagined and real lives of women.
In Group 2: Pirating Texts, Orgil Batzaya (Math, Computer Science), Lucian Li (Computer Science, History), and Grant Glass (project mentor and graduate student in the English Department at UNC-CH) will discuss the complications of looking at a data set that saw drastic changes over the last three centuries in terms of spelling and grammar in tracing the publication history, geographical spread, and content of "pirated" copies of Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe
