Analyze

Definition

In seeking themes centered on scholarly activities undertaken against research materials, a theme that emerged for me might best be summarized as "Analyze." This theme covers the actual scholarly activities carried out utilizing research materials that have previously been Discovered, Gathered, Organized, Manipulated and the like. Analysis might be done using a fixed algorithm or tool, a bounded philosophy or theory, or a personal investigation into the material. This can be a whole range of activities, which those who are scholars can better describe.  One example of scholarly activity already separated into another theme is Annotate.

  • Critical analysis of 9 volumes of French edition, 6 volumes in Dutch, 1 volume in German edition.  Want to use technology to do literary analysis beyond what's possible for 1 human. Analysis and understanding of voluminous text.  Compare & contrast maps is akin to comparing text    (Ex. 2 scribe notes, 1a-E)
  • E8: spend a lot of time with my primary sources, looking for visual patterns and stylistic markers that are associate of expressionism - and I often have to do this at high speed, in an artificial context (play & FF pressed at the same time). ...  E8: deductive and inductive processes that take place when engaging closely with your source material (early film). e.g. looking for stylistic & visual repetitions, regular  transformations, but also incongruities that could be worked into a working hypothesis (induction) and then moving into a deductive mode and looking for expected evidence in the film.  (Ex. 2 scribe notes, 1b-F)
  • Analyze physical, ephemeral media (verb D-O, discrete). ... Make connections between 'pieces.'  (Ex. 2-3 flipcharts, 1a-D)
  • Find patterns. Discover relationships.  Analyze data (linguistics:  morphological analysis).  Calculate similarity metrics. ...  Identify causal relationships.  Identify stylistic patterns.  Aggregate critical editions (analyze secondary, identifying "State of the Art").  (Ex. 2-3 flipcharts, 1a-E)
  • Figure out collection of the texts fit together.  Structure for 40+ manifestations/texts.  Work texts up (transcribe/translate) in XML to work with texts re:  How can I see commonalities.  (Ex. 2-3 flipcharts, 1a-G)
  • Incubating: thinking, reflection, traveling (sticky 62).  Analyzing: data mining, data visualization, visuals (sticky 62). ... Assessing: comparing, previewing, editing, analysis (sticky 62).  Subtracting, assimilating, organizing (sticky 62). ...  Sense making (sticky 63).  (Ex. 2-3 flipcharts, 1b-G)
