Hidden Writing! Part Deux

Preservation Underground - Fri, 2016-12-02 17:24

Latin MS 221Conservation Services has been working closely with staff from our Digital Production Center this week to train in the operation of our new multispectral imaging equipment and learn about image processing. During the calibration and testing of the machine we took the opportunity to re-image the illuminated manuscript leaf which I posted on back in the summer. The palimpsest is so clearly legible in these new photos! We are very excited by the possibilities that this new imaging equipment opens for learning more about our collection materials.

To work with and make meaning of a set of 500 satirical images and 50 pieces of theatrical and panoramic writing, I've been working with qualitative data analysis software, in particular nVivo. This presentation charts my journey through the land of qualitative data analysis and data visualization, and will demonstrate how this figures into my dissertation project, "Art, Commerce, and Caricature: Satirical Images of Artistic Life in Paris, 1750-1850."

The Visualization Friday Forum is an informal meeting for faculty, staff and students from across the university to share their research involving the development and/or application of visualization methodologies. Each week, a speaker is invited to prepare a 35-minute informal presentation for a 50-minute time slot. The presentation is centered on a scientific problem or visualization technique. Participants in the audience are encouraged to engage in a discussion with the speaker. The goal of the weekly meetings is to build an interdisciplinary community whose combined knowledge can facilitate research and promote innovation. For weekly updates about the Visualization Friday Forum, please visit our website (http://vis.duke.edu/FridayForum) or subscribe to our listserv (https://lists.duke.edu/sympa/subscribe/visualization)
