We are collecting what digital humanities and news nerds would want to explore together and how we might facilitate it. Please add ideas/questions to https://github.com/livlab/digital-humanities-journalism/issues
This discussion started with Joe Germuska: "Seems like some kind of meeting of the tribes between news nerds and digital humanities folks would pay off nicely." https://twitter.com/JoeGermuska/status/615862917997699072

projects / examples
- LOTR Project - this is AMAZING: the lord of the rings in data
- What would happen if historians made their research notes public?
- Structured Stories - reporting in structured data instead of attempting post-publication; running an experiment this summer in NYC to see if it's a viable model for news.
- Explaain - Jeremy Evans' new project exploring reporting around issues instead of breaking news events; journalism.co.uk writeup
- Google Living Stories - about 5 years old now but shows one possible presentation of news as connected storylines.
- The Refugee Project - mapping migrations over time with related stories (here, events and headlines)
- Space Log - Read the stories of early space exploration from the original transcripts. Now open to the public in a searchable, linkable format.
- [Ontomedia] (http://contextus.net/) and the work of Faith Lawrence & Mike Jewell - the former is in the Digital Humanities faculty at Kings College London, Mike Jewell is at Southampton University, both have been v influential in DH & narrative circles
- Arab Spring Storyline - from the first News Labs hack - #16 in the list here, an example visualization built on BBC's Storyline ontology. This is a take on explaining key events in the Arab Spring through a mix of pull quotes, maps, timelines and charts.
- Stories Ontology - a model (predating Storyline) which is more focused on interpretations of events (i.e. useful for more subjective claims about stuff)
- Home Front - BBC website for a radio program on world war I allows exploration via characters, events, places involved, using storyline ontology.
- Mythology Engine - early project structuring Doctor Who as storylines. Site is up but behind a login - ask @r4isstatic for a login to the site if you're interested.
Academic centres of practice
- Roy Rosenzweig Center for History & New Media at George Mason University
