+title: "Spatial Humanities and Visual Narratives"
+date: Wed Sep 28 10:10:25 -0500 2011
+tags: UNL-DHS Spatial-Humanities
+category: Digital-Humanities

+
+*[This is a reading reflection written for HIST946: Digital Humanities with
+Professor William Thomas during the Fall 2011 semester. This week's readings
+were Richard White, "[What is Spatial History?](http://www.stanford.edu/group/spatialhistory/cgi-bin/site/pub.php?id=29)," Philip Ethington, "[Los Angeles
+and the Problem of Urban Historical Knowledge](http://www.usc.edu/dept/LAS/history/historylab/LAPUHK/)," and David Staley, "[Historical
+Visualizations](http://quod.lib.umich.edu/j/jahc/3310410.0003.304?rgn=main;view=fulltext)". You can find related posts [here](http://jasonheppler.org/the-digital-humanities-seminar.html).]*
+
+Computer visualizations offer new ways for humanist scholars to reconfigure the notion of
+narrative As David Staley notes, visualizations have the ability to depict
+complex information into spatial form. Historical visualizations, then,
+represent historical information in a visual or spatial manner rather than
+verbal or linear. These methods begin to give form to new styles of narrative,
+or perhaps answer [Orville Vernon Burton's call](http://chnm.gmu.edu/essays-on-history-new-media/essays/?essayid=30) for models of scholarship beyond
+the written monograph.
+
+Burton writes that "history, similar to all disciplines, is badly in need of
+models beyond the monograph for the demonstration of excellence, and where the
+scholarship itself is in need of new genres and new strategies for reaching new
+audiences." The visualization of humanistic information and data may represent one
+new method for scholars to communicate their findings and research their topics
+with the aid of computers.
+
+New ideas about the intersections between geography, history, and theory along
+with technological methods and techniques points towards methods humanist scholars
+can utilize in studying the intersections between space and place. Humanists now
+conceive of space more acutely, fully aware of how politics and society can
+influence both physical and imaginative space. As Richard White notes, space is
+not simply natural geography or a container to be filled with history. Instead
+of an empty vessel awaiting historical action, space is a historical actor where
+stories occur over geography and history (space and time). Space, then, is
+a site of continual conflict shaped by struggles over power and definition.
+
+What this all means for the humanities is a reconsideration of how technologies
+like Geographic Information Systems can be applied to humanistic data. There are
+various ways of doing so. For example, scholars can apply GIS to spatial
+infrastructure, what Henri Lefebvre called "spatial practice," by mapping
+physical spaces from county boundaries to transnational railroad lines. The
+greater challenge is how to map relational space. GIS emphasizes the absolute
+space (inches, feet, miles) but can do little to represent how space was
+constructed. But this way of thinking about space opens up new lines of inquiry
+about the connections between culture and geography. Philip Ethington asks
+scholars to think more broadly about definitions of space. In his example of Los
+Angeles, the city can exist as the Consolidated Metropolitan Area of the US
+Census Bureau, or the City of Los Angeles, or popular definitions of the city in
+sources like *Baywatch* or *Blade Runner*. How do we reconcile the technology of
+GIS with its emphasis on the given-ness of space with the constructed-ness of
+space?
+
+Especially significant in spatial humanities is the reliance on mapping not as
+a byproduct of research, but integrated deeply throughout the research process.
+Spatial humanities offers new ways to construct narratives about historical
+events.

+title: A Simple Ruby NGram Generator
+date: 2012-04-24 15:45:43
+---
+
+I was playing around with Ruby the other night and wrote a simple n-gram generator. In case anyone is interested, here is the script:
+
+{% highlight ruby %}
+#!/usr/bin/env ruby -w
+# r_ngram.rb
+# Generate a simple bi- and tri-gram, prints to STDOUT
+# Usage: ruby ngram.rb file.txt
+# To save the output to a file: ruby ngram.rb file.txt > output.txt
+
+$words = File.read(ARGV[0]).downcase.scan(/[a-z]+/)
+
+bi_grams = Hash.new(0)
+tri_grams = Hash.new(0)
+
+num = $words.length - 2
+num.times {|i|
+ bi = $words[i] + ' ' + $words[i+1]
+ tri = bi + ' ' + $words[i+2]
+ bi_grams[bi] += 1
+ tri_grams[tri] += 1
+}
+
+puts "## -- bi-grams -- ##"
+bg = bi_grams.sort{|a,b| b[1] <=> a[1]}
+(num / 10).times {|i| puts "#{bg[i][0]} : #{bg[i][1]}"}
+puts "\n"
+puts "## -- tri-grams -- ##"
+tg = tri_grams.sort{|a,b| b[1] <=> a[1]}
+(num / 10).times {|i| puts "#{tg[i][0]} : #{tg[i][1]}"}
+{% endhighlight %}
