2012 Colloquium on Digital Humanities

Submitted by Leo Klein on Mon, 11/19/12 (3:23pm)

I'm not much of a numbers guy but I appreciated the first round of presenters at the 2012 Colloquium on Digital Humanities which took place this weekend at the University of Chicago. The theme was 'big data'.

Here Diane Cline (U. Cincy) is giving a talk on "The Social Network of Alexander the Great" and a major part of her presentation were lines of connections, shown on a graph, between Alexander the Great, people who he knew, people who knew him, people who knew the people who knew him, etc. -- all charted out as a series of spiraling lines and nodes.
