At the end of the workshop we asked for feedback, both on the training itself and on EpiDoc materials and community in general. A summary of their replies and the ensuing discussion follows.

Abstract Women face bigger challenges than our biology and our nature. We still receive unequal pay as faculty, have to make headway in a system that favors an “old boy’s network”, we tend to doubt our abilities more and ask for less, our careers are their most vulnerable during our childbearing years, and our training requires frequent, long distance moves. There are so many factors that keep women from advancing in science, none of which is our love for a good yarn. While Kenny’s hypothesis about the lack of narrative keeping women out of science is provocative, it’s based in a fictional world. If we want to create a narrative about women leaving science, let’s ground it in reality.

Abstract People who create web forms, databases, or ontologies are often unaware how different people’s names can be in other countries. They build their forms or databases in a way that assumes too much on the part of foreign users. This article will first introduce you to some of the different styles used for personal names, and then some of the possible implications for handling those on the Web. This article doesn't provide all the answers – the best answer will vary according to the needs of the application, and in most cases, it may be difficult to find a 'perfect' solution. It attempts to mostly sensitize you to some of the key issues by way of an introduction. The examples and advice shown relate mostly to Web forms and databases. Many of the concepts are, however, also worth considering for ontology design, though we won't call out specific examples here.

Abstract Summer 2014 English S3024 section 001, Columbia University: "Digital Humanities" (DH) is an umbrella term encompassing a variety of scholarly communities that reside at the intersection of technology and the humanities. Over the past decade, DH researchers have adopted a number of cutting edge methodologies, many of them notably quantitative and computational. The purpose of this course is to make these methods accessible to undergraduates and to facilitate their application to literary and cultural criticism. The course has several objectives: (1) to survey examples of recent computational criticism, including authorship attribution, computational stylistics, topic analysis, network analysis, and computational narratology; (2) to help students gain a working understanding of available software packages useful to literary and cultural research (e.g., WORDij, Sci2, R, etc.) and data analysis techniques (e.g., word frequency and word pair analysis, network extraction, etc.); (3) to situate recent computational criticism in relationship to earlier critical movements-particularly Structuralism and Russian Formalism.

Abstract Least cost path applications can be a powerful tool for understanding connectivity across a landscape. A limitation to this method is its difficulty in integrating terrestrial, marine, and cultural factors – all of which would have been at play in the prehistoric Aegean. This study looks at a method of modeling pathways that integrates major factors (land, sea, and culture) that would be in play while considering medium- to long-distance travel in the Aegean. This test case explores the possible relationships between proposed routes for communication and identified coastal sites with parameters modeled in geographic information system that affect travel in cultural, marine, and terrestrial contexts. The methods presented have significance beyond the Late Bronze Age Aegean. The development of a methodology that incorporates marine, cultural, and terrestrial environments provides a mechanism by which specific hypotheses regarding complex communication routes may be addressed in regions of the world where there is an intensive interplay between terrestrial and marine geographies.
