Collections As Data, Images As Data
August 24 @ 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Taylor Arnold, Associate Professor of Statistics, University of Richmond, and Lauren Tilton, Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities, University of Richmond, present “Collections as Data, Images as Data” as part of Sound Image History: The LGBTQ+ Audiovisual Archive Project Speaker Series.
The virtual Sound Image History speaker series celebrates the conclusion of a year-long Collections-as-Data grant funded project aimed at building a text-based data set from the archival AV materials in the UWM Archives. The UWM Libraries house the largest collection of LGBTQ+ historical and contemporary materials in Wisconsin, providing a rich record of Milwaukee’s LGBTQ+ communities. This project will make the AV materials in those collections – a format that is traditionally underutilized – much more discoverable and usable, and open pathways to new research. The LGBTQ+ AV Archive Mining Project, and this speaker series, are made possible by a grant from the Mellon-funded Collections as Data: Part to Whole initiative.
