Together, these interactive visualizations explore the prospect of comparative bibliography within the digital humanities. (With Will Dean and Heidi Ryti)
Visual First Amendment uses data-driven visualizations to produce a new and engaging look at Supreme Court rulings on the First Amendment. Our interactive displays allow visitors to explore the interrelation of issues, cases, courts, and justices over time, and to consider the broad social and legal changes that have impacted First Amendment rulings on the freedoms of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition.
This project presents an overview of bibliometric analysis, noting several barriers to applying this method in the humanities. Following that, we present a novel online tool for extracting and classifying citations in the humanities.
