  • Description: Gephi is an open-source network analysis and visualization software used in a number of research studies. In using data to intuitively reveal patterns and trends, highlight outliers and tells stories with their data, Gephi has been used for projects such as visualizing the global connectivity of New York Times content and in examining Twitter network traffic during social unrest. More recently, Gephi has been used within the digital humanities (in history, literature, political sciences, among many subjects) resulting in new research findings that were not previously possible using only analog methods and print materials. Join us as iSchool graduate student Emily Hector offers a demonstration of using Gephi in analyzing UBC’s own network of DH scholars, followed by a hands-on activity that you can use for your own research and exploration.

    The Pixelating Mixer is an opportunity for DH scholars across campus to meet colleagues, talk tools, brainstorm ideas and network with others who use digital tools to explore and visualize their research.

    We provide soft chairs, tables, wireless internet, and interesting people to talk to, collaborate with, and bounce ideas off of. You bring your laptops, DH projects, and ideas.
