DHSI Text/Map Modelling


In June 2015, I attended the Digital Humanities Summer Institute in Victoria, courtesy of Ryerson’s Centre for Digital Humanities. I took a course in Text/Map Modelling taught by Oyvind Eide of Universitat Passau, and worked on a three-day mapping project with Caitlin Christian-Lamb of Davidson University.

Caitlin and I choose to map the “crossed wireless” miscommunication in the first day after the sinking of the Titanic. One early headline, for example, wrote boldly “Titanic Sinking; No Lives Lost.” How did this headline happen?
