    Data, with Teddy Manning (14 Feb)

    Dear friends,

    Please join us next week in celebrating International Love Data Week with
    our virtual keynote featuring Teddy Manning from CUNY Graduate School. Hän will
    present on hänet project, MapLemon, on Wednesday, 14 February at 10am
    Mountain / 12noon Eastern / 5pm UTC. You can register for the zoom here:

    *Abstract:* MapLemon is a naturally elicited digital writing corpus most
    well known for its inclusion of transgender and nonbinary identities in
    data collection, resulting in groundbreaking discoveries about the
    possibility of a transgender accent, and furthermore suggesting that
    transgender and nonbinary people write most similarly to their gender as
    opposed to their sex assigned at birth. MapLemon was created with
    demographic diversity in mind—not just with gender, but also with respect
    to race, ethnicity, homeland, etcetera. This talk will discuss how we can,
    as researchers, create surveys like MapLemon’s which result in these
    important discoveries, representing diverse identities in data, and
    ultimately forwarding inclusivity in data.

    *Bio*: Theodore (Teddy) Manning (pronouns: hän/hänet/hänen) is a Linguist
    and Master’s student in Digital Humanities at the City University of New
    York Graduate Center. Hänet work focuses on quantitative sociolingusitics
    and corpus creation/analysis, as well as stylometry. Hän is most well known
    for hänet creation of the MapLemon corpus, a corpus of naturally elicited
    digital writing in North American English which includes 121 (and counting)
    responses from transgender and nonbinary people, making it the first corpus
    of its kind. In hänet spare time, hän writes fanfiction and plays
    Minecraft, and has a visceral hatred of dark chocolate.
