Description

"If you give a historian code: Adventures in the Digital Humanities"

Digital Humanities is about so much more than computer code, it is about the conversation between technology and the human record. Jean Bauer, Associate Director of the Center for Digital Humanities and Princeton University, will talk about her own path into digital humanities though history and technology to create The Early American Foreign Service Database, as well as her experiences working with graduate students and faculty across the humanities and computer science to translate research questions into software and analyze the results.

All welcome and there will be drinks and discussion after the talk.

Speaker

Jean Bauer is Associate Director of the Digital Humanities Center at Princeton, where she leads a team of programmers, project managers and DH consultants. Prior to working at Princeton she was the Digital Humanities Librarian at Brown University from 2011-2014. Through a combination of formal training and curiosity Bauer is an early American historian, database designer, and photographer. At the University of Virginia she developed and built The Early American Foreign Service Database (www.eafsd.org), which she used to do analysis for her dissertation “Republicans of Letters: The Early American Foreign Service as Information Network, 1775-1825.” She blogs and tweets at http://packets.jeanbauer.com and @jean_bauer, respectively.
