This meetup will feature lightning talks on humanities data sets that a) have been produced, cleaned, or maintained at Princeton, and b) that pose interesting questions or intractable problems to a data scientist. How did researchers structure and document their data? How has it been stored? Our goal will be to begin a conversation on comparative research methods across the humanities and data sciences: what are our research objects and how do we describe them differently?
Stay tuned for a call for data sets. Presenters will be asked to provide a short (ca. 100 word) summary of the data, what the data covers, how it was collected, how it is stored, and a short description of its reuse potential.
