Why Use Digital Methods in Arts & Humanities Research?
Digital image manipulation, social network analysis and data mining can change our perceptions of the world around us, but they also require careful, critical use.
This presentation will take arts & humanities practitioners through the choices we need to make when we consider digital methods and tackle some of the critical issues for digital arts & humanities practitioners. We’ll also provide a clear list of IU resources that can support efforts in mapping, data mining, network analysis, data visualization, 3D rendering, computationally aided vision and other digital methods in a variety of disciplines. Finally, we’ll all engage in a practical white-board-based activity that doesn’t require digital tools to demonstrate how analog methods can enhance understanding of some of these digital-methods applications in a variety of environments (including the classroom).
