Lucia Binotti (Romance Languages, UNC-CH) and Chris Smith (Bioinformation, NCSU) will discuss their NEH-funded (Digital Start-Up) digital humanities project, “Gnovis,” in Robert Allen’s digital humanities class, Tuesday, Aug. 30, 2:45 pm, Peabody 08.

“Gnovis is a software tool for visualizing entities and the relationships between them in well-defined domains of knowledge. Gnovis is a first attempt at producing an engine that can display corpora of knowledge in multi-dimensional environments, allowing for the visualization of extensive amounts of material organized semantically in nested clusters.”

Their presentation and discussion is also the kick-off event for this year’s program of speakers and activities sponsored  by the UNC Digital Scholarship Reading/Working Interest Group
