Dr. Ritwik Banerjee on “Social Identities in Text” at SBU Libraries

As part of the University Libraries’ focus on providing an interdisciplinary forum for scholars and students interested in digital humanities modalities, Dr. Ritwik Banerjee spoke about his research, entitled, ” Social Identities in Text.”  A research assistant professor in the Computer Science Department, Dr. Banerjee’s work blends technical approaches to data with an interest in what these data, taken from text, can reveal about the writer.  This talk was attended by students and faculty from a variety of departments, contributing to the broader conversation about the ways in which text mining transcends disciplinary boundaries and authorizes multifaceted questions.

The University Libraries’ Digital Humanities Working Group looks forward to the next DH event at the library, the Digital Humanities Open Mic.  This event is open to anyone, from any department, interested in addressing social, literary, or historical questions using technology,  and to researchers who approach technology from a humanistic perspective.
