Visualizing the New Woman

Edge + Digital Scholarship Events - Wed, 02/04/2015 - 21:00
Wed, Feb 4, 2015: 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Edge: Digital Studio

In this informal presentation, Hannah Jacobs will detail how her ‘Visualizing the New Woman’ project investigates through text analysis and interactive information visualization definitions of the New Woman and the New Woman discursive network as represented in a collection of over 50 texts published in the United States and British Empire in 1893-1894. The project's purpose is both to highlight the intricacies of the New Woman discourse and to explore digital techniques, with a focus on visualization, that can be used to present macro- and microanalyses of corpora. The talk will focus on text analysis, digital methodology, and visualization and we will then open the floor for conversation.

DIBS Programming Basics for Neuroscience

Edge + Digital Scholarship Events - Mon, 02/02/2015 - 21:00
Mon, Feb 2, 2015: 4:00 PM - 7:15 PM
Edge: Workshop Room

Computing skills form one of the foundations of modern neuroscience research, but learning to program and analyze data can be intimidating, and most materials are targeted at students in computer science and engineering, not biologists. In this workshop, we will offer a gentle introduction to computing for neuroscience students that focuses on data analysis. Over the course of five three-hour sessions, students will learn: 

  • how to use the shell to automate basic tasks like copying files and running analyses 
  • an introduction to version control: "track changes" on steroids 
  • the basics of programming in Python with the iPython notebook: coding in your browser! 
  • plotting and summarizing data 
Please bring your own computer to the workshop. Registration is required. For information on fees and registration, please contact Elizabeth Johnson at johnson@neuro.duke.edu.
