Transparency to Visibility (T2V): Network Visualization in Humanities Research
NEH Digital Humanities Advancement Grant, Level II

The T2V project is developing and testing new computational approaches to extracting and visualizing relationships in bodies of texts. Using a corpus of biomedical research funding disclosure statements, the T2V team is developing a toolkit that automatically extracts relationships from texts and supports a variety of data visualization options. In so doing, this project will also contribute to the ongoing development of robust humanistic inquiry into economic influences on biomedical research. More specifically, the T2V project will:

  • provide a methodological framework for visualizing complex systems (including financial networks) related to matters of humanistic and public concern.
  • allow bioethicists, health policy researchers, and medical humanities scholars to access and visualize large datasets on funding and conflicts of interest for a variety of biomedical domains.
  • develop a flexible open-source toolkit designed to support easy redeployment for a wide variety of humanities research projects.
