Special Session on "Linguistics and Cultual Analytics"
Call for Papers
Special Session Organizers:

Michael Gavin, University of South Carolina, USA

William Kretzschmar, Univ of Georgia, Athens, USA

As part of the Duke Forest Conference's call for interdisciplinary research into ``digital society," this Special Session invites papers in linguistics, cultural analytics, and digital humanities. We ask how the study of language, history, and culture can contribute to data-based research in the social sciences, including economics. Our aim is to discover new questions and research agendas in linguistics and the humanities, and to ask how humanities-based research into digital media and society can evolve with the social sciences in the age of ``big data."

Paper topics might include:

- Complex systems and culture

- Social network analysis and mining

- Semantic web and information retrieval

- Cultural analytics

- Text mining and topic modeling

- Digital media and mobile technologies

- Digital games and learning

- Digital arts and design

- Law, cybersecurity, and privacy

- Critical language and media theory
