Adam Anderson is a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Digital Humanities. His work brings together the fields of archaeology and computational linguistics to quantify the social and economic landscapes emerging during the late third to early second millennia in the ancient Near East.

His research employs specialized methods for replicable qualitative and quantitative analysis of textual artifacts to illustrate cross-cultural trade and model socio-economic events using computational text analysis, network analysis, and geospatial analysis. The bulk of this analysis stems from contextualizing artifacts from the excavation to the museum catalogs and secondary publications (1 minute video description).


The Series

In conjunction with the inaugural Digital Humanities Summer Minor, DH at Berkeley will be hosting a weekly DH Summer Lecture series, highlighting the distinguished work of faculty and scholars engaged in the digital humanities at UC Berkeley.

While this series is designed to complement the coursework of the DH Summer minor, all are welcome to attend and learn more about DH scholarship on campus. This series will be held weekly on Thursday afternoons at 3:15 PM in the D-Lab Convening Room (356B Barrows Hall).

Each week, our featured speaker will present on their work followed by ample time for Q&A and discussion.
