Using digital humanities to 'digest' 500 archival images

PhD LAB | Kathryn Desplanque: Satirical Art & the Digital Humanities

How do you write a meaningful study of 500 archival images? In this video, Kathryn Desplanque, recent Duke PhD graduate in art history and alum of FHI's PhD Lab, explains how she used NVivo to curate and annotate a corpus of 489 satirical images from 1750-1850 Paris. Her digital humanities work not only creates a veritable digital museum of these revolutionary images but also uses digital tools to ask critical humanities questions. Learn too how she articulates the important, collaborative work of our FHI PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge.
