The Workshop on Big Humanities will be held in conjunction with the 2013 IEEE International Conference on Big Data (IEEE BigData 2013, 6-9 October 2013, San Francisco, California). The conference provides a leading international forum for disseminating the latest research in the growing field of “big data”.
The workshop will address applications of “big data” in the humanities, arts and culture, and the challenges and possibilities that such increased scale brings for scholarship in these areas.
Topics covered by the workshop include, but are not restricted to, the following:
Text- and data-mining of historical and archival material.
Social media analysis, including sentiment analysis
Crowd-sourcing and big data
Cyber-infrastructures for the humanities
Relationship between ‘small data’ and big data
NoSQL databases and their application, e.g. document and graph databases
Big data and the construction of memory and identity
Big data and archival practice
