This class day will be devoted to our second in-class project. We will return to The Crisis, but experiment with image. We will demonstrate Imageplot as a tool using the Crisis dataset as a whole, and then split into groups to analyze different subsets of the dataset.
At the end of class, we will imagine different research questions we could explore using this method.
Aims of The Crisis Image Project:
- Structured data
- Image analysis as a method
- Imageplot as tool
- Revisit The Crisis on the Modernist Journals Project
- Try out the different viewing options
- Choose one or two issues (other than the ones you read for the previous project)
- What types of writing/materials are in the issues?
- Editorial, poetry, ads, etc?
- How are the issues structured?
- Lots of text? Lots of images? Like a magazine? Like a newspaper?
- Download imageJ and Imageplot – click on the green Code button toward the right of the screen and then “download zip”
- Download the Crisis image and dataset from Google Drive
- Look through/watch walkthrough of imageplot [coming soon]
- Distant Viewing: Analyzing Large Visual Corpora, Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, Lauren Tilton and Taylor Arnold, 2019
