Conference: Victorian Data

The newly-formed North American Victorian Studies Association (NAVSA) Data Caucus will host its free inaugural conference at the University of Virginia on November 15-16, 2019. Our conception of data encompasses British and North American practices for gathering and expressing information; cultural attitudes toward data; the rising disciplines and technologies that lead to today’s communications, new media, critical coding, and data science; digital collections; digital pedagogies; quantitative methods; data theory, and digital humanities. Together, we hope to move data from the margins of nineteenth-century studies by recognizing its centrality to research and methods of all kinds in this international long century (ca. 1780-1920).  

The Data Caucus is chaired by Megan Ward. Alison Booth chairs the University of Virginia’s Host Committee for this inaugural conference, joined by Andrew Stauffer, Cristina Richieri Griffin, and Sherri Brown. UVA, having hosted NINES and other digital and data research groups, offers a good venue for taking stock of the way we do data now. Participants will meet a range of digital humanities librarians, faculty, and graduate students, and may find time to visit the Rare Book School or Special Collections.  

This conference is cosponsored by Network/Corpus Workshop in the Humanities Informatics Lab and the Data Science Institute, as well as the Scholars’ Lab, and UVA Library.
