    Summer School - Epistemology and methodology

    Visual Analysis with Digital Tools

    Göttingen Center for Digital Humanities (GCDH) International Summer School 2014

    The Digital Humanities enhance the methods of traditional research in the humanities through automated data acquisition and processing. Visualisations can play a central role in analysing such data. This Summer School will address a set of fundamental problems, such as requirements for scientific visualisation or visual strategies. The main goal, however, is to focus on the practical side to enable the participants to tackle specific visualisation problems in order to advance their own research. The natural sciences have a long tradition of interest in visualisation methods (just compare magazines like "Science" or "Nature" to any magazine with a humanities background). The humanities are catching up, though, and starting to apply visualisation techniques to answer their own research questions. A set of tools has emerged in recent years and has introduced a number of visualisation practices into the humanities. Charts, graphics, 3D visualisations or "Maps, Graphs, Trees" (to quote the title of a well-known recent book on the subject), should not only illustrate, but also create new knowledge. Only then can we call visualisations a true method in the Digital Humanities.

    Networks

    Ferney-Voltaire summer university 2014

    Si l’étude et l’analyse de réseaux sont largement mobilisées en sociologie, leur arrivée dans d’autres champs disciplinaires des SHS offre des points de vue renouvelés sur la manière d’appréhender des systèmes complexes d’interactions, de flux ou d’organisation et de déterminer les logiques transversales qui les régissent. Ces dernières années voient fleurir quantité d’événements autour de ces thématiques, témoignant d’un engouement grandissant de la part du monde de la recherche. Nous aimerions inscrire notre événement dans cette dynamique féconde, en donnant la parole aux doctorants et jeunes chercheurs confrontés à l’analyse de réseaux dans leurs travaux. Notre ambition est principalement d’échanger sur les outils et les enjeux méthodologiques de la notion de « réseaux » et de son usage dans la recherche contemporaine.
