The Center for Digital Humanities at Princeton welcomes Associate Director Jean Bauer
Jean Bauer comes to Princeton from Brown University, where she was the Digital Humanities Librarian, working with faculty, students, and librarians to design and implement digital systems that showcase and facilitate scholarship in the humanities. Bauer was in the first class of full year Graduate Fellows in the University of Virginia Library’s Scholars’ Lab. She built and maintains The Early American Foreign Service Database ( www.eafsd.org ), which allows researchers to trace Early American diplomats, consuls, special agents, and their clerks all over the globe, and is the primary analytic engine for her dissertation research. Bauer is the lead developer of two open source projects: DAVILA www.jeanbauer.com/davila.html ), a tool for creating color-coded, annotated, interactive visualizations from relational database schemas, and Project Quincy ( http://projectquincy.org ), a Django application with a MySQL database that uses information about people, places, and organizations to trace how social networks and institutions develop over time and through space. For more information, see her website: www.jeanbauer.com
At Princeton, Bauer will direct the new Center for Digital Humanities at Green Hall, continuing and expanding the projects of the Digital Humanities Initiative. PLEASE JOIN US in welcoming Jean Bauer to Princeton at our OPEN HOUSE event, Monday, September 29th at 4:30pm at the new Center for Digital Humanities at Princeton in Green Hall.
