Harvard University researcher Dario Rodighiero has created an interactive visualization that shows the interconnections among people, ideas, and methods at July’s Digital Humanities 2020 conference (#DH2020).
The visualization is especially fitting given that the theme of this year’s conference, which was held online, was “carrefours/intersections.”
The visualization allows viewers to zoom in and explore how different conference attendees are connected by publications and research areas. Click here to view the interactive visualization, or view the data repository on Zenodo.
“In a moment in which gatherings are not allowed, the map is an excellent way to find your contextual digital humanities community,” said Rodighiero, who earned his PhD from EPFL’s Digital Humanities Institute in 2018, in a tweet on July 20th.
