1. Preparing for the workflow in the coming weeks

 

  • Process of brainstorming and “operationalizing” research questions for week 2 of the camp
    (cf., Franco Moretti, "Operationalizing," 2013)
    • Good idea for teams to look over the Topic Model Observatory tools, TMO Guide and Interpretation Protocol (Word or PDF reference copies) to familiarize themselves with the kinds of data, features, patterns we commonly look for in topic models
    • Possible brainstorming & operationalizing process:
      • Teams quick-explore a model together, trying out ideas for getting at a question
      • Keep communal, ongoing log of the exploration process
      • Then teams discuss and write down an initial plan, plus a possible sequence of Interpretation Protocol modules to use
  • Getting familiar with available topic models that can be used in the summer
  • Training on using the WE1S Workspace Jupyter notebooks (on the Harbor server) to produce additional visualizations for models that are missing some visualizations (workshop led by Lindsay Thomas) 

 

 

 

2. Team planning meetings, continued (Team Dashboard)

          • Then teams discuss and write down an initial plan, plus a possible sequence of Interpretation Protocol modules to use
        • Conduct initial exploration of a topic model(s) with the research question in mind.
      • Tuesday-Wednesday: Teams work on interpreting topic models. (In mid-week, the research question can be revisited to see if it needs to be revised.)
      • Thursday: Each team produces a short report answering its research question.
  • PM Teams (Special Tasks)
    • PM team work
  • Thursday “Summit meetings”
