WhatEvery1Says, 2014-present: Co-PI
WhatEvery1Says is a text analysis project that is collecting a corpus of public discourse about the humanities (from newspapers, magazines, blogs, reports intended for the public or legislatures, etc.) and analyzing that corpus using machine learning. Our hypothesis is that computational methods can help us learn new things about how media pundits, politicians, business leaders, administrators, scholars, students, artists, and others are actually thinking about the humanities.

RoSE (Research-oriented Social Environment), 2011-2012
Research assistant. RoSE is a system for exploring the humanities that encourages users to seek out relationships between authors, works, and commentators – both living and dead – as part of a social network of knowledge. It presents bibliographical information as an interconnected network of evolving relationships between documents and people. RoSE allows users to add items to the network, create and visualize their own collections, and produce “storyboards” to visually organize their findings into meaningful arguments or narratives.
