Lauren Tilton & Taylor Arnold (University of Richmond)

When: 18 November 2019 15:00-16:30
Where: Grote Zaal MCW Muntstraat 2a Utrecht University
Organised by: CLARIAH WP5 Audiovisual Data and Media Studies

In their lecture, Lauren Tilton and Taylor Arnold will elaborate on the possibilities of distant viewing for television, film & media
studies. They will furthermore discuss some of the work done at The Distant Viewing Lab: founded to use and develop computer vision techniques to analyse visual culture on a large scale.

Tilton & Arnold endeavour to develop tools, methods, and datasets that can be re-used by other researchers. Their lab furthermore engages closely with critical cultural and data studies, aiming to make explicit the interpretive act of algorithmic logic.
