Tracking and visualising change in Raynal’s Histoire
Mitchell Whitelaw and Geoff Hinchcliffe, ANU Design
April 10th 2017, 5-6pm
Digital Humanities Lab, Rm 2.25 Sir Roland Wilson Building, (Building #120, Mc Coy Circuit), ANU
Glenn Roe commissioned us to develop an interface that would track and visualise textual changes in three editions of Raynal’s Histoire. We used computational analysis to match and track paragraphs of the text across editions, and developed new approaches to layout that reveal structural as well as textual changes; the end result is a web interface that enables exploration of the text across multiple scales. In this presentation we will demo the interface and outline the entangled data / design processes that formed it.
About the seminar series
The Centre for Digital Humanities Seminar Series and aims to share digital humanities research and projects at ANU and elsewhere. Seminars will run in our Digital Humanities Lab (Rm 2.25 Sir Roland Wilson Budiling), unless indciated otherwise. Presentations are relatively informal with a focus on discussion and demonstration (show and tell). The seminar is open to everyone, and we welcome proposals for presentations on all types of Digital Humanities research.
