DH Workshop: Paul Vierthaler

Thursday, October 11, 2018
12:00-1:30pm
Wilson Hall, Room 142

More about Paul Vierthaler: Paul Vierthaler is a University Lecturer (Assistant Professor) of the Digital Humanities at Leiden University in the Netherlands. In his current monograph project, he analyzes how historical events are represented in “quasi-histories” written in late imperial China. His stylometric work brings new insights to the study of genre and intertextuality.

  • Workshop from 12pm – 1:30 in Wilson 142: Paul’s workshop will introduce ways to use Python to perform the kinds of stylometric text analytics that he will have discussed in his Thursday lecture.  If you visit his website, you’ll find that his demos—while sophisticated—are also accessible to beginners (like me). Register here.
      • Title of workshop: “Visualizing Stylometric and Intertextual Relationships in Large Textual Corpora”
      • Advance installation and support: You’ll need Anaconda on your machine (downloadable here). If you don’t already have it, feel free to come to the workshop early—between 11:30-12—and receive installation support.
