Blog Post #10: Data Visualizations

Ask yourself this: What is the one thing that distinguishes a boring speech to a good speech? Or a dull lecture to an interesting one? That is engagement. Yes, the composition matters; but what will make it not like the others, you know? There are different ways to engage your audience but one that IContinue reading “Blog Post #10: Data Visualizations”

Blog Post #9: Is Social Media The Best Data-Analysis Tool?

Social media is a funny thing, don’t you think? It can be harmful in some aspects, yet useful in others. This week, I contributed to a class Twitter coding project and have a lot to say about the experience. Twitter is great for spreading messages to a wide audience. If tweets are liked or retweeted,Continue reading “Blog Post #9: Is Social Media The Best Data-Analysis Tool?”

Blog Post #8: The Evolution of Mapping

This week I contributed to a map based on our NY community. The goal was to add points of hidden history in New York. For example, one article I found was based on Indian-American Tribes of Long Island, the place I grew up in. This is the link if you’re interested:  http://www.richmondhillhistory.org/indians.html My additions toContinue reading “Blog Post #8: The Evolution of Mapping”

Blog Post #6: Pedagogical Projects and Rhetoricity

Digital archives are “dynamic sites of rhetorical power” (Enoch and VanHaitsma, 2015). Well, what does this mean exactly? To make it easier for you, digital archives are projects with five main rhetorical components; combined, they make a new way for Internet users to explore and engage within research. What is a teacher’s role in archivalContinue reading “Blog Post #6: Pedagogical Projects and Rhetoricity”

Blog Post #5: Digital Diversity

Historical events can never be changed, but I’m here to tell you that the way of researching and understanding them can. Before the 1960’s, history departments and scholars did not consider diversity in part of their research. A movement led by scholars, called the New Social History, made it in effort to “retell history” andContinue reading “Blog Post #5: Digital Diversity”

Blog Post #3: Human Reading VS Computer Reading

In modern society, technology is constantly evolving. We can even make them read for us now. That’s right, computer reading. You’re probably thinking: wow, that’s crazy, I mean how can a computer read for you? This week, I read “The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and then pasted the text into a computer readingContinue reading “Blog Post #3: Human Reading VS Computer Reading”

Blog #2: Race and Digital Projects

“The Power Chapter” and “Making a Case for Black Digital Humanities” argues for the inclusion of black individuals in their studies. Digital projects are a great use for Black Studies, as it introduces diversity; many “represent a search and mission for the collective recuperation of a lost peoplehood” (Gallon, 2016). However, it is missing aContinue reading “Blog #2: Race and Digital Projects”

Blog Post #1: What is Digital Humanities?

1. The digital humanities approach extends our research to provide an understanding of the liberal arts. New technology collects data and forms conclusions. It is a “latest frontier is about method, they say, using powerful technologies and vast stores of digitized materials that previous humanities scholars did not have” (Cohen, 2010). For example, researchers areContinue reading “Blog Post #1: What is Digital Humanities?”
