An Approach for the Visualization of Topic Emergence in Popular Language
MetadataShow full item record
The collision of cultures introduces change: from the manifestation of ideas in physical realms to less tangible avenues of discussion, cultural fusion presents interesting and particular trends that this research team aims to explore. In prior experiments in text analysis and interactive story- telling, preliminary observations on this phenomena were made. These lead to a fundamental question on the feasibility of visualizing cultural change drawing entirely from the written material of different scopes. More specifically, the team considers the influence of culture on language, interest patterns, and prevalence in two opposing pools of literature and written material, observing and graphing the relationship in a manner supplemental to the understanding of cultural behavior. The presented methodology details the cultural collision between the ”Computer Hacker” and mainstream media cultures, yet serves to exemplify an innovation on the visualization of colliding cultures in general.
