Session proposal–Digital Humanities: Building Social Networks and Capacity in Idaho

From: Marc Smith et al., Mapping Twitter Topic Networks: From Polarized Crowds to Community

Brief presentation on the methods of social network analysis articulated in the article above and
brief presentation about social network visualization as a tool for historical study.

Small group discussion/brainstorming session:
Digital humanities tools have the potential to create communities of discourse, and to enhance
advocacy and action.  In a small group setting a discussion of the state of the humanities in Idaho
can lead to establishing working groups, objectives and strategies for future activity.

In preparation I have created a survey that may be filled out before, during or after
THATCamp BSU, and its data examined during and after the conference.
