Macroanalysis & the Humanities

Macroanalysis & the Humanities” is a working group at the University of Chicago that was co-founded by Sarah Kunjummen and Jonathan Schroeder. Our goal is to introduce humanities graduate students to the area of the digital humanities known as “macroanalysis,” or the large-scale formal analysis of humanistic objects of study.

In addition to presenting core aspects of digital humanities research and providing a forum to receive feedback on projects and project ideas, we also seek to lay the groundwork for longer-term intellectual support. To this end, the working group serves as a forum for connecting students to available resources on campus, an emerging network of possible interlocutors and collaborators for future projects, and an archive of readings in the field.
