Re: 11.21 Status of Work-in-Progress

First, in order to investigate political research in mass culture, I located the political texts that were most important or most popular during the 2008 election cycle. I narrowed my search to only include texts from the Federal Presidential Election, hoping to draw conclusions on the use of librar...

Re: 10.24 Share some Code

Here, I compare 'political' texts to 'revolutionary' texts checked out during the twelve month cycle during 2007. I added a bit of a propagandistic tint to the color, and a transparency to each of the layered bar graphs so that if one of the layers was beneath one another at any time, it would remai...

Re: 11.21 Status of Work-in-Progress

From 2005- 2008 it is easily recognizable that there is a growing trend in political texts checked...

Re: 10.10 Cultural Analytics Review + Sketch

Review of Lev Manovich’s Cultural Analytics: It seems that the vast majority of data driven interpretations of the ‘field of humanities’ explore the most reductionary elements of humanities data: words. Perhaps this is because with the rise of organizational software the only mode of interpretation ...

Re: 11.07 Your Presentation

Re: 10.10 Cultural Analytics Review + Sketch

Andrew Jay Bowe 10.10.11 Here, I would like to suggest that Manovich's belief in a data-stat-visual movement in the Humanities is highly under developed and lacks a real pragmatic grounding for the field. As Manovich asserts, "In Digital Humanities, people are doing statistical analysis of historica...
