Tools and Techniques for Exploration in the Digital Humanities
The field of Digital Humanities (DH) is broad, and the applied tools are as diverse as the projects in which they are used. The Center for Humanities and Digital Research at the University of Central Florida creates and supports a variety of DH projects. These include text-based corpora such as Samuel Johnson’s Dictionary, mixed reality projects such as ELLE, the EndLess LEarner, mapping projects such as the Veterans Legacy Program, as well as digital and physical publication projects like journals and chapbooks. This session will highlight the tools used in these and more, from Zooniverse, Leaflet, Twitter scrapers, Orange, and the Adobe Creative Suite to show how they can assist with preserving historical sources and enhance analysis.
This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Indian River State College.
