学生的研究

The 数字与计算研究 Department offers courses that teach students in any discipline to use data analysis tools to uncover new findings and meaning — within texts, 新闻媒体, 或者是社交媒体——否则它们就会被隐藏起来.

约书亚·张伯伦在葛底斯堡看到了什么?

Gabriella Papper, 2018届毕业生

During the summer of 2017 I worked with Professor Hall to answer the question “What could Joshua Chamberlain see at Gettysburg?使用历史证据和计算工具.

数字 humanities methods and tools enabled us to reconsider the Battle of Little Round Top at Gettysburg. Chamberlain is well known for ordering a bayonet charge that helped the Union line secure Little Round Top. 他也是365历史上的杰出人物. 直到现在, Chamberlain’s line of sight and perspective during the battle have not been thoroughly examined.

I worked with the visualization software Gephi to create a network of Chamberlain’s correspondence. Using over 500 original letters that were available in Bowdoin’s Special Collections and Archives, I created visualization networks that focus on the Civil War and Chamberlain’s correspondence overall. Gephi enabled us to repurpose the original letters to gain insight into the humanistic side of Chamberlain’s decisions during the battle. (可视化)

然后我使用GIS, 一种制图软件, to examine the geography of Little Round Top and compare the accuracy of historical and modern maps. I created an image that shows the visibility at Little Round Top from Chamberlain’s position (visualization below, 绿色是可见的,粉红色是不可见的). The digital tools had to account for variables in this project, 其中包括张伯伦是蹲着还是站着, 七月的植被是什么样子, 1863, 还有军队的密集程度.

 通过对数字人文学科的研究, I was able to create a richer narrative of Chamberlain’s vision at Little Round Top by combining contemporary tools with historical evidence. The information from this research will be incorporated into a new and innovative class offered as part of the 数字与计算研究 Initiative this fall. 我非常感谢霍尔教授, 吉本斯奖学金, and Bowdoin’s resources for the chance to be part of this new and exciting initiative.

标题: Sweet Blood: History and the Nature of Diabetes and Chronic Disease in America

By: Wendy Dong '18

Recent history and studies alike have shown that chronic diseases are social and historical issues, 除了生物. 在这个项目中, we focused on type 2 diabetes and zeroed in on the United States Native American population. 在收集了所有需要的人口统计数据之后, we hope to move on to other minority groups within the United States.

标题:“约书亚·张伯伦的遗产——技术的挑战

作者:安娜·蒂莫尼-戈麦斯

Could Joshua Chamberlain have known what he was sending his troops into? Timoney-Gomez suggests due to the geography of the land, we cannot be certain he did. Using GIS, she is able to recreate the scene we know today as the Battle for Little Round Top.

作者:西蒙·坎

SNL has always relied on parody and satire of current events as sources for comedy. At what point does the comedic representation become a instrument for the expression and criticism of political thought? Can a comedy show be a serious player in shaping national perceptions of individuals and ideas?
