*Around the World Web Conference on Digital Media in a Post-Truth Era*
Much to be excited about here, Eileen.
My concerns are about the viability of a single data source when attempting to do network analysis. This is not a conceptual or even a research concern, but more of a […]
i’d add creating a preliminary db structure to this mvp as well. scanning and ocr’ng, while challenging, are merely the preliminary steps to getting data into a useable format.
it would be helpful for you to find and share some models for your project.
what is your hypothesis about what elements of a “network” will be visible when the corpus is a single text?
can you unpack “parse”? what is the specific value that your intervention will add to Rossiter’s research, beyond making it available on a web site? how will the data be transformed by your process?
this use case offers a potential constraint… limiting the data to women scientists in the 1950s-60s. pros/cons of that approach?
What are the IP implications of what you propose?
Matthew K. Gold replied to the topic Fwd: Digital Humanities at the Community College in the US: Please respond to our survey in the forum Digital Humanities Initiative via email 4 days, 4 hours ago
Interesting! Can you please email a screenshot, if possible, of the email
notification you received to me at email@example.com so that I can
compare? I read the email notification in Gmail; I wonder if it displays
Anyway, we will explore!

Omeka seems right for this, and Lisa’s suggestion of the Neatline plugin to add a timeline is a good one. Alex’s questions about how you balance what you present is important; we need to hear how you’ll […]

Matthew K. Gold started the topic Future Perfect Conference On June 16, 2017, Data & Society Research Institute’s Speculative Fiction Reading Group will host Future Perfect, a conference exploring the use, significance, and discontents of speculative design, narrative, and world-building in technology, policy, and culture. The past year has been marked by frequent commentaries comparing the present moment to works of dystopian literature and speculative fiction. The sentiment that science fiction futures can’t keep up with present-day developments pervades discussions of policy, technology, and culture. But the extent to which fictional futures exercise power over our present is, in some cases, by design. For example, the influence of 2002’s Minority Report on gestural interfaces, surveillance technologies, and automation isn’t an accident of history–the future envisioned in the film was created in close consultation with technologists and academics actively working on products that the film imagines in real-world settings. An entire industry of speculative designers and futures consultants continues to actively construct dystopian futures on behalf of corporations and governments, transforming TED talks and architectural renders into self-fulfilling dystopian prophecy. In a moment when the future increasingly feels like a foregone conclusion, Future Perfect will bring actors from a variety of world-building disciplines (from art and fiction to law and science) together to explore the uses, abuses, and paradoxes of speculative futures. Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to: The history and political economy of the future (subtopics here might include divination, scenario planning and war games, and predictive modeling) Analyses of specific SF works that have uniquely influenced technology, politics, and/or aesthetics Challenges to dominant future narratives in popular culture and representation in speculative fiction Why Silicon Valley venture capitalists seem to think Snow Crash was a playbook for the next twenty-five years and not a dystopian hellscape That one scene in Minority Report with the cereal box that is literally the only really important part of the film Proposed contributions may include, but are not limited to: Academic Papers Fiction Performance Video Games The conference will be livestreamed and documentation of participating projects will be posted online. About Data & Society Data & Society is a research institute in New York City focused on the social and cultural issues arising from data-centric technological development. This conference is designed to draw out unexpected insights by pairing evidence-based practitioners with imaginative creators in dynamic exchange. The conference will help Data & Society identify pressing issues in this emerging field, and help grow a diverse network of researchers and practitioners at the intersection of technology and society. Participation requirements Participation in this event is limited. Those who are interested should apply by May 12, 2017. We are interested in having a wide range of disciplines represented, including designers and artists, academics, performers, programmers, lawyers, journalists, scientists, and of course fiction writers. All participants agree to inclusion in the conference’s online documentation. Schedule Thursday, June 15, 2017 (optional) 7-10pm Screening and Reception Friday, June 16, 2017 12-6pm The Conference The Conference itself will morph to fit the selected participants, and includes a welcome lunch, 2-3 themed sessions showcasing work and framing participation, and other potential modes for engaging with our theme.
