Women Writers Vector Toolkit (Web Resource)
Title: Women Writers Vector Toolkit
Author: Ashley Clark
Author: Parth Tandel
Author: Parmeet Singh Saluja
Author: Syd Bauman
Author: Sarah Connell
Author: Molly Nebiolo
Author: Cara Messina
Author: William Reed Quinn
Abstract: The Women Writers Vector Toolkit (WWVT), an online laboratory for learning about and experimenting with word embedding models, housed at Northeastern University and part of the Women Writers Project’s WWP Lab. This site is an accessible and transparent space for users with many levels of experience in text analysis. The site includes detailed documentation in order to: describe the processes and choices behind the regularization of the texts used to train the models in the Word Vector Interface, publish code samples, and share assignments and case studies that demonstrate teaching and research applications for word embedding models.

Encoding the Archive: Building Collaborative Digital Editions in an Early Modern Classroom (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Encoding the Archive: Building Collaborative Digital Editions in an Early Modern Classroom
Author: Connell, Sarah
Abstract: This paper will discuss some lessons and challenges from the “Encoding the Archive” project, in which students work in teams to publish archival documents as part of a class on gender and early modern bodies at Northeastern University, taught by Professor Marina Leslie. Each student encodes an individual document according to the standards of the Text Encoding Initiative, but the teams make collective decisions about how to handle regularization, annotation, and representation of document structures and features. Student teams also decide how to display their documents online and author a group editorial declaration. This model allows students to contextualize their individual documents and encourages them to become invested in the editorial process, as they must reach consensus about many potential approaches to modeling and publishing their texts. This paper will share the project’s design considerations, adjustments over several iterations, student feedback and outcomes, and potential adaptations for other contexts.

Reading Models, Modelling Reading: Digital Texts and Human Readers (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Reading Models, Modelling Reading: Digital Texts and Human Readers
Author: Flanders, Julia
Abstract: Drawing on the work of the Women Writers Project (http://www.wwp.northeastern.edu), this presentation will explore the ways in which digital models and representation systems serve as proxies for human reading, or as intermediaries in that process. How do models such as text markup and algorithmic analysis such as word embedding models operate in dialogue with the written "source" text? How do we read these models, and how do these models themselves operate as readers? (And what is a "model"?) We'll examine the Restoration-era women's texts from Women Writers Online and also data about the materials read by these authors, building on the WWP's current "Word Vectors for the Thoughtful Humanist" Institutes and recently completed "Intertextual Networks" grant that explores how women cite and make use of what they read.
