Movement of Ideas

Monday, October 9, 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Hornbake Library, Room 0301 North

 How do communities construct ideas of African American experience in the ways they record moments of celebration, conflict, and everyday life? How can we trace these ideas through text and time?

Using digital archives of local black newspapers and the campus newspaper, The Diamondback, we explore how texts contribute to the communal memory of black experience. We will learn to create and publish digital primary texts with annotation and commentary using the Text Encoding Initiative standard and build skills in computational text analysis using the Python programming language.
