The Transmedia Observatory (June 3rd: 15.30-17.30 )
In the TviT session of June 3rd, Eva Baaren and Jasmijn Van Gorp will elaborate on the project TROVe (Transmedia Observatory), a collaboration between TViT, The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and ISLA UvA.
TROVe develops and tests a search engine that enables digital humanities scholars to analyse the spread of information throughout time and across different media, such as broadcast television and social media (twitter, blogs). The user interface is tailored to the needs of digital humanities scholars, notably supporting exploratory research, contextualisation and monitoring.
During this TViT session, a first version of TROVe will be presented and discussed in terms of design, functionalities, concepts, and additional user requirements.
