Data Visualization

Description

How does the visualization of data enable digital humanists to understand texts, develop questions, and report the results of our research? Can we visualize only quantitative data (e.g. word clouds based on frequency or proximity)? How do we convert qualitative questions — like a given character’s preoccupation with death — into quantitative images?

These are a few preliminary questions as I develop a resource list for students in my English 203 in Winter 2012, Hamlet in the Humanities Lab.
