Big Humanities

IEEE BigData 2013 is going to be accompanied this year by a two-day workshop on “big data” applications in the humanities. Some promising-sounding topics from their CFP include:

  • Text- and data-mining of historical and archival material.
  • Social media analysis, including sentiment analysis
  • Cultural analytics
  • Crowd-sourcing and big data
  • Cyber-infrastructures for the humanities
  • Relationship between “small data” and big data
  • NoSQL databases and their application, e.g. document and graph databases
  • Big data and the construction of memory and identity
  • Big data and archival practice
  • Construction of big data
  • Big data in Heritage

They will be accepting long and short paper proposals until August 5.
