Data Cleaning, Text Analysis
A data set was compiled by Fusion.net (now SplinterNews.com) that pulled images posted by presidential candidates during the 2016 election from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Due to the shear amount of data and the time constraints of the project, I chose to focus on the followers of the digital Hilary Clinton campaign. The numbers prove what has long been suspected: No one cares what she has to say.
Final Project, SPAN 272B: Post-Francoist Hauntologies
In collaboration with Madison Felman-Panagotacos, M.A.
This project is interested in the different ways that cinema presents and also re-presents spaces of confinement from the Spanish and Argentine dictatorships. Each of these dictatorships were marked by the disappearances of thousands of people, imprisonment/torture of women, and child abuse. Specifically, our research centers on how documentaries and fiction films construct and portray spaces in their work and the impact these spaces have on the narrative and, ultimately, what it implicitly communicates to the audience about state-induced trauma.
