Introduction to my Summer Research Project

In the digital humanities department at Bucknell University, we are making the most of our time during this pandemic by continuing to pursue our research endeavors remotely. This summer, I am working with Dr. Katherine Faull, Dr. Diane Jakacki and Justin Schaumberger on the Moravian Lives Project.

My particular focus in this project is using the CWRC-Writer program to markup emotion within memoirs from the Fulneck Moravian settlement in West Yorkshire, England. As shown in the following screenshot, the emotions tagged become pink so they can be easily picked out in the memoir.

I look forward to sharing my experiences with this project throughout the summer!

Welcome to the Digital Humanities at Bucknell website! You may ask, what exactly is Digital Humanities (DH)? Digital Humanities involves a range of research and work at the juncture of digital computing and humanistic inquiry. Digital Humanities here at Bucknell aims to expand and facilitate such digital research and scholarship through its various initiatives. These initiatives include the development of faculty and student projects, a Digital Humanities minor, and tools, resources, and collaborative working spaces for those interested in learning more about DH.
