DH2019 Workshop: The Case of Interview Data: A multidisciplinary approach to the use of technology in research using interview methods

There are still some spaces left for this workshop on interview data being held as part of DH19 in July in Utrecht, Netherlands, organised by CLARIN ERIC and UK Data Service.

When considering research processes that involve interview data, we observe a variety of scholarly approaches, that are typically not shared across disciplines. Scholars hold on to ingrained research practices drawn from specific research paradigms and they seldom venture outside their comfort zone. The inability to ‘reach across’ methods and tools arises from tight disciplinary boundaries, where terminology and literature may not overlap, or from different priorities placed upon digital skills in research. We believe that offering accessible and customised information on how to appreciate and use technology can help to bridge these gaps.

This workshop aims to break down some of these barriers by offering scholars who work with interview data the opportunity to apply, experiment and exchange tools and methods that have been developed in the realm of Digital Humanities.

The workshop

This half-day workshop will provide a fruitful cross-disciplinary knowledge exchange session.

It will:

  1. Show how you can convert your AV-material into a suitable format and then use automatic speech recognition via the OH-portal
  2. Demonstrate the correction of the ASR-results and the annotation of the resulting text
  3. Demonstrate how you can do star some simple text-analysis (Voyant) and create some nice graphics
  4. Demonstrate the possibility of emotion extraction with Open Smile
