Introduction This year has been hugely exciting so far: I’ve been exploring and playing with various techniques that fall under the general categories of data mining and text analytics.

Setting up an internal data analytics practice – some thoughts from a wayfarer

What’s been particularly satisfying is that I’ve been fortunate to find meaningful applications for these techniques within my organization. Although I have a fair way to travel yet, I’ve learnt that common wisdom about data analytics – especially the stuff that comes from software vendors and high-end consultancies – can be misleading, even plain wrong.

Hence this post in which I dispatch some myths and share a few pointers on establishing data analytics capabilities within an organization. Busting a few myths Let’s get right to it by taking a critical look at a few myths about setting up an internal data analytics practice. Requires high-end technology and a big budget: this myth is easy to bust because I can speak from recent experience. Getting started Parting thoughts Like this: Like Loading... Polinode - Delivering Deep Insights via Network Analysis. A dataset for distant-reading literature in English, 1700-1922. Literary critics have been having a speculative conversation about close and distant reading.

A dataset for distant-reading literature in English, 1700-1922.

It might be premature to call it a debate. A “debate” is normally a situation where people are free to choose between two paths. “Should I believe Habermas, or Foucault? I’m listening; I could go either way.” Conversation about distant reading is different, first, because there’s not much need to make a choice. More importantly, this isn’t a debate yet because most of the people involved aren’t free to explore both paths.

A dataset for distant reading To reduce barriers to entry, I’ve collaborated with HathiTrust Research Center to create an easier place to start with English-language literature. HathiTrust contains more than a million volumes in English between 1700 and 1922. However, many literary scholars are mainly concerned with books in a particular genre — they limit their inquiries, say, to “poetry” or “prose fiction.” Three big blocks of stone. HTRC Portal - Word Frequencies in English-Language Literature, 1700-1922. Note that this is a beta data release.

HTRC Portal - Word Frequencies in English-Language Literature, 1700-1922

Please send feedback to Many of the questions scholars want to ask about large collections of text can be posed using simplified representations – for instance, a list of the words in each volume, together with their frequencies. This dataset represents a first attempt to provide that information for English-language fiction, drama, and poetry published between 1700 and 1922, and contained in the HathiTrust Digital Library. The project combines two sources of information. The word counts themselves come from the HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC), which has tabulated them at the page level in 4.8 million public-domain volumes. Because both of these projects mapped volumes at the page level, their results can be collated to produce genre-specific datasets.

To provide an even easier point of access, we have also created yearly summary files for each genre. 6.1.4. Big Data. NoSQL. Data visualisation tools. Lorna M. Hughes. NeMO: NeDiMAH Methods Ontology launched!

Lorna M. Hughes

I’m delighted to announce the launch of NeMO, The NeDiMAH Methods Ontology, a major new component of the international digital humanities research infrastructure. Background: NeDiMAH, and understanding Digital Humanities in Practice NeDiMAH was a ESF Research Networking Programme (RNP) funded from May 2011-May 2015. It was a collaboration of 16 ESF Member organisations, and was co-Chaired by myself, Susan Schreibman (University of Maynooth, Ireland) and Fotis Jannidis (University of Würzburg, Germany, from 2011-14). NeDiMAH brought into partnership the digital humanities researchers of16 NeDiMAH Member countries (Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK. This work will be the basis for future knowledge production in the humanities that takes advantage of digital tools, methods and content.
