In class I mentioned a few things that can work as examples for kinds of work you might consider. Now, again, everything on the syllabus is a potential example of something you could write about. Here are a few more.
So here are two articles I wrote that I think fit into viable papers.
Here is the paper I wrote about looking at how people engage with a monument via social media. Tripadvisor rates Einstein: Using the social web to unpack the public meanings of a cultural heritage site. The International Journal of Web Based Vol. 8, No. 1, pp.40–56. DOI: 10.1504/IJWBC.2012.044681
Here is a paper I wrote about what people do with a historical video game. (2010). Modding the history of science: Values and habits of mind in modder discussions of Sid Meier’s Civilization. Simulation & Gaming. doi:10.1177/1046878110366277
In terms of text mining and analysis, I wanted to share this very practical step by step approach to using Vouyer to do text analysis of two speeches.
