#PATC 2017

Here is my #PATC presentation in full and in tweeted order:

 

1 #PATC #pubarch using #digitalhumanities to examine public perceptions of early-medieval archaeology sites via discourse analysis & more

1

 

2 #PATC Aim: Compare discourses in academic (research papers), heritage (websites, books) & public (news/ soc media / reviews) text corpora

2

3 #PATC Case study Sutton Hoo, early-medieval burial site in Suffolk UK – run by @NT_SuttonHoo & main collection separate at @britishmuseum

3

 

4 #PATC #corpuslinguistics CADA focus on differences in text content & style via phrase association to see if / where discourse differs

4

5 #PATC get keyphrases from text, examine collocation network and visualise patterns via #LancsBox, close reading for discourse detail

5

 

6 #PATC Further visualisation using @cytoscape to create static network for a text or corpus, see word-stems & their original word groups

6

 

7 #PATC Results: often a heritage focus on one time-period at site, analysis suggests academic debate also forgets other layers of a site

7

 

8 #PATC ‘anglo-saxon’ & ‘early-medieval’ usage inconsistent even across academic and heritage texts, public use Anglo-Saxon label most often

8

 

9 #PATC burial & cremation stark comparison – academic corpus few mentions of cremation, heritage and public barely any – burial abounds

9

 

10 #PATC ‘anglo-saxon’ – one ‘public’ from academic perspective, but not for heritage? Twitter showing wider political use of ‘anglo-saxon’

10

11 #PATC lack of ‘cremation’ in public corpus may not be lack of interest but lack of knowledge– feeds down the line lack of academic debate

11

 

12 #PATC future work – extend web scraping, Stonehenge case study, explore image analysis, machine learning to aid discourse analysis
