Visualization for Digital Humanities – University of Konstanz
This seminar will bring together text analytics research with visual analytics research to investigate the challenges particular to providing visual text analytics tools for linguistics and digital humanities research. The course will cover the basics of text visualization, then move on to analysis tasks common in digital humanities, the state-of-the art visualization techniques for text data, and considerations of usability, trust, and supporting existing work practices in interdisciplinary research.
During the semester, students will meet for a combination of lectures, student presentations of assigned readings, progress updates and peer feedback about course projects. The main output of this seminar will be a well-written and documented implementation of a visual analytics tool to support a specific line of research in linguistics or digital humanities.
