Medicine and the Medici: Digital Humanities Tools and the Study of Thermal Water in Early Modern Tuscany (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Medicine and the Medici: Digital Humanities Tools and the Study of Thermal Water in Early Modern Tuscany
Abstract: Natural thermal springs dot the Tuscan landscape. Between the 16th and 18th centuries, the Medici grand dukes of Tuscany encouraged the use of these thermal waters as medical treatments and supported physicians who prescribed water cures and studied the mineral composition of the waters. This talk will explore the impact of Medici patronage on the development of chemistry and medical care in early modern Tuscany. By using patient stories gleaned from archival and medical documents, this talk will also discuss the challenges of conducting historical research and the effect digitization has had on methodology.

English 375: Digital Methods for Literary Text Mining (Course or Curricular Material)
Title: English 375: Digital Methods for Literary Text Mining
Author: James Clawson
Abstract: Upper-division course in Digital Humanities for English Department, Data Analytics Certificate, and Future DH Minor For newspapers, social media, product reviews, and poetry, text is the medium of meaning. But its unstructured format demands unique strategies for bringing order to chaos: discovering general information, identifying distinctive details, recognizing topics or themes, and evaluating sentiment. In this project-based course, students will use tools and methods of data analysis to ask questions about texts and communicate the answers. Students will learn progressively complex applications of text data mining to understand the information that can be found within sets of documents. With special emphasis on literary texts, the course will also discuss and provide opportunities to study the relevance of text mining to fields like public health, business, science, and security.
