Visualizing Literacy and Historical Networks with Gephi

Ryan Cordell

Assistant Professor of English
Founding Core Faculty Member, NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks
Northeastern University

In this workshop Cordell will discuss the affordances and limitations of Gephi—a network analysis tool developed primarily for modern social science research—for illuminating relationships in literary and historical datasets, situating his discussion of this specific tool within a wider conversation about network analysis and visualization methods. Cordell will ground these discussions in hands-on work using sample data from Mapping the Republic of Letters and his own Viral Texts project.

Lunch will be provided.
