MemberGuy Birkin

Senior Research Executive at CFE Research, Leicester, UK, an independent company doing social research on education, employment, wellbeing for government, public authorities and education providers. I work on design, field work and analysis of research, specializing in literature reviews, quantitative and qualitative analysis, and data visualization. My work is mainly in the area of education, particularly education in the arts and in science/STEM subjects, in relation to socioeconomic disadvantage, gender and ethnicity. Independently, I continue my academic research on aesthetic complexity – investigating how complexity is perceived, understood and used in visual art and music. This research supports and is supported by my creative practice – generative music and visual art.

I’m the Chair of Digital Partnerships & Strategies in UF’s Libraries. I provide leadership for digital partnerships between the UF Libraries and partners across the university, regionally, nationally, and internationally. I work closely with library colleagues to create and sustain supports for collaborations for building collections, community, and capacity, including for the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) and LibraryPress@UF. My work is geared towards enabling a culture of radical collaboration that values and supports diversity, equity, and inclusion.

DepositVisualizing the French Enlightenment Network Using Palladio

Visualization tools can allow academics to produce their own diagrams without necessarily hiring a designer. I will walk through some examples of diagrams produced in Palladio, a digital humanities package developed in the Humanities + Design Lab at Stanford University. Palladio lends itself to qualitative studies because the visualizations that it produces (maps, network diagrams, and tables) are familiar to most humanists, and because it allows for the filtering of data through categories chosen by the user. I will show how maps can be used to compare the weight, or influence, of cities, as well as travel and communication between cities and other geographical points; then I will show how network graphs can be used in the study of networked people or things using data from the Mapping the Republic of Letters, Procope Project, the Electronic Enlightenment project, and the groupe d’Alembert.
