How to Read a Million Letters, and Other Adventures in the Digital Humanities

The Humanities have entered the age of Big Data. But what are we going to do with all of it? In this talk, I survey some of the technologies and methodologies that scholars have developed to analyze large digital corpora, from topic modeling and sequence analysis to mapping and network graphing.  While the recent past has largely been characterized by advances in text-mining, I suggest that the next

frontier for digital humanities may come in the form of “linked data.”
