Mapping the Italian Conference of Digital Humanities

The Cartography of AIUCD2020 is a network visualization showing the authors attending the AIUCD conference that took place in January 2020 in Milan.

Authors’ full texts have been parsed using the algorithm TF-IDF; succesively, shared keywords have been transformed into network relations.

The cartography was relased one week before the conference in order to be available as an instrument to prepare the attendance.

Further details are included in the conference paper Mapping as a Contemporary Instrument for Orientation in Conference. The paper is the result of a collaboration with Chloe Moon (Columbia University) during her internship at the MIT.

The instance of this specific visualization is available on GitHub, while the long-term project is kept updated under the name Lexical Cartography.
