FEBRUARY 26, 2020 - Congratulations to History Department graduate student Jeff Turner who just published a coauthored article in Digital Humanities Quarterly!
With his coauthors Turner explored "The Push and Pull of Digital Humanities: Topic Modeling the 'What is digital humanities?' Genre." Turner and his coauthors run a topic model on over 300 article-length pieces about Defining Digital Humanities. They use this topic model as a way to think through entry into the digital humanities as a negotiation between warm invitation and gatekeeping, the “pull” and “push” of digital humanities. They then analyze the metadata they collected about these pieces to explore how the push and pull manifest themselves unevenly across different demographics.
