Upcoming Events

If you have an event involving Digital Scholarship that you would like us to help advertise, please write to dssn@buffalo.edu.

For Spring 2023, we had a mixture of hybrid and online-only presentations. Please make note of that after each presentation title. The in-person location for hybrid presentations will be 320 Lockwood on the North Campus. This semester the DSSN  partnered with the Digital Humanities Research Workshop to offer a number of workshops on digital scholarship tools. Those workshops are noted after the title.  All times are US Eastern time.

February 28, 1:00-2:00 Derek R. Strykowski “A Musicologist Learns R: Experiments in Historical Data Visualization” (Online only)

First launched in 2020, A Visual Guide to Some Nineteenth-Century Composers and Their Publishers (https://dstrykowski.shinyapps.io/visualguide/) is an R-based data visualization project that illustrates the publishing activities of (at present) ten prominent composers through a series of interactive charts and maps. This presentation takes my development of the Visual Guide as a case study to demonstrate both the challenges and the opportunities that greet scholars who are working with R for the first time. I’ll talk about how I determined that R was indeed an appropriate software solution for the project, learning the rudiments of the programming language, and familiarizing myself with the many existing packages of code that help to make R such a versatile digital tool. I’ll then introduce the website for the project, which uses R Markdown and was released on the Web using a cloud-based platform called ShinyApps.
