Session Description:

This roundtable seeks to query precisely what data can be and do in a humanities context. Charting the migration from individual project to scalable data set, we explore “big data” not simply as a matter of size or number but as a process of granting researchers and educators access to shared information resources.


Subjects:

  • General Literature – Electronic Technology (Teaching, Research, and Theory)

  • The Profession – Research and Bibliography
