Spatial Humanities: Finding spatial and time narratives in corpus data

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course

2023 → …

This workshop at the Corpus Linguistics (CL2023) conference will explore practical solutions for corpus linguists, digital humanists and computing researchers to study time and spatial relationships in corpora. The workshop will be led by members of the ESRC-NSF funded Space Time Narratives project (https://spacetimenarratives.github.io/), which is developing approaches that allow us to identify, extract, visualise, and analyse qualitative and quantitative references to place and time. The organisers will demonstrate how these methods are currently being applied to analyse experiences of leisure travel and forced migration, generating complex cultural and experiential geographies.

Participants will explore a web based hands-on tutorial using a bespoke Python Notebook and Streamlit visualisation tool developed by the project team. All code and data will be open source and open access following the workshop. Participants will learn the basic skills needed to apply these techniques to the project data and, from there, to facilitate further application on their own corpora after the workshop.
