Today, Jonathan Hope introduced us to the tools made by the Visualizing English Print project, beginning with Ubiquity, a tool that allows you to perform word frequency calculations resulting in a csv file as well as to create html pages of your plain-text files that visualize the occurrence of the word. Using Shakespeare's plays, people visualized using pen, paper, clay, tape, and sticks.

I uploaded 7 ECCO-TCP texts to the tool
The Digital Library Federation is focusing its conference on speakers who work in the fields of Digital Humanities and libraries, as well as feminism and critical race studies. Interestingly, they are all women, a major intervention in the all-male-panelists phenomenon that is getting so much press in the news lately.
On April 15, the IDHMC hosted our first Visualization Day, which showcased the work of Texas A&M faculty and researchers. We were pleased to have participants from Archaeology, Digital Humanities, English, Performance Studies, and the Libraries in the event.
