The group aims to create a centralized digital humanities community on the UW-Madison campus. In our meetings, we focus on the processes involved in digitizing, quantifying, and visualizing different types of humanities objects turned data (including printed books, manuscripts, historical records, art, music, films). In addition to opening up new research questions, the group provides an opportunity for a sustained conversation about the computational and analytical aspects of the digital humanities. We consider the current theories underlying digital methodologies and also discuss, brainstorm, and workshop specific projects at various stages.
