Data Science in the Humanities

Activity: Talk or presentationSocietal


Slides presented at the 10th DataScienceNL Meetup, 20 June 2019 at PICNIC in Amsterdam.

Humanities is a broad research field that covers (but is not limited to) history, literature studies, linguistics and ethnology. Digital methods are becoming more common in day-to-day humanities practice, but these methods don’t always translate seamlessly to the humanities domain. In this talk, I will present use cases from the Dutch Royal Academy’s Humanities Cluster that show the potential as well as frictions in the application of digital analysis methods in this domain.
