This one day conference brings together scholars interested in exploring all aspects of digital scholarship. We will showcase new and important digital research projects, explore the potential of new and emerging trends in digital scholarship and investigate the technology, infrastructure, and support needed for effective scholarship.
Join us as we discover how to make new research possible!
The University at Albany, University Libraries and Binghamton University Libraries are excited about this collaborative effort to highlight Digital Scholarship on SUNY Campuses.
Keynote Speaker, Robert Nelson
Director Digital Scholarship Lab
University of Richmond, Richmond VA
Dr. Robert K. Nelson is the director of the Digital Scholarship Lab. His current research uses a text-mining technique called topic modeling to uncover themes and reveal historical patterns in massive amounts of text from the Civil War era. He is currently completing two projects from this research. One is a digital project that will publish and analyze multiple topic models of Civil War-era archives including the Richmond Daily Dispatch and the New York Times. The other is an essay that analyzes these models to produce a comparative analysis of Union and Confederate nationalism and patriotism.
