Research Path

In this BBL I will present a sort of trailer of my evolution as a digital humanist: starting from my first steps of DH and cultural history research, going through how this work helped me to get a job, and closing with how both of these experiences gave way to my current research project.

First, I will share some key aspects of my master thesis, which used a mix of text and data mining to convey an interactive visual exhibition of 19th-century salons. I will briefly expose what we might be able to (and what we still can't) read from co-occurrence matrices, crono-maps, and network analysis.

Next, I will talk about how this experience led me to think about our need as researchers to work closer with libraries and how thanks to an amazing team, this reflection made me the first DH Librarian in Latin America. On this section, I will focus on how we've used DH methods to improve our understanding of our holdings, purchases, and research impact (including citation in Wikipedia).

Finally, I would like to share some thoughts on my upcoming research about the past 15 years in the field of humanities and social sciences with the objective of  studying the advent (or not) of quantitative methods using quantitative methods.
