Roundtable on Networks in Digital Humanities

Eunseo Jo (History) & humanities colleagues

Wednesday October 28, 12:00-1:30 PM

SCANCOR Conference Room (CERAS 123)

Lunch will be provided (more than last week).

 


Format & Objectives

The potential of networks is recognized by researchers in the digital humanities, but network methods are less utilized than other computational methods such as Natural Language Processing (NLP). Two reasons for this are: 1) the barrier of learning networkmethods and 2) the barrier of formulating research topics in relational terms.

This week's format will differ a little from that of a presentation or tutorial:

1. We will begin the roundtable with longer-than-usual introductions of participants and their research interests.

Food exchange and social structure in a mixed market-subsistence economy

Lunch will be provided

Abstract

Recent research on climate change and Inuit well-being has often emphasized the importance of country food sharing in mitigating food insecurity, however, such claims have largely been made in the absence of empirical data on sharing. My research documenting food flows in an Inuit community in Nunavik, Canada, suggests that, contrary to popular belief, the most needy households are not prioritized for food sharing. Rather, patterns of exchange reflect existing social and economic hierarchies, which may have important consequences for our understanding of recent culture change among Inuit. 

Bio

Elspeth is a PhD candidate in Anthropology. Her ethnographic and archaeological research interests are focused on human subsistence ecology, specifically in foraging societies, and on the social relationships associated with food.
