"German POWs in the USSR, 1941-1956: A GIS Analysis" by Susan Grunewald
Starts: January 26, 2018, 3:30 pm
Ends: January 26, 2018, 5:00 pm
Location: CMU Baker Hall 246-A
Description: The paper examines German prisoner of war (POW) camps in the Soviet Union from 1941-1956. The Germans were the largest and longest held group of POWs of any of the victor nations of the Second World War. The key research question is why were they held for so long? The paper argues that the POWs were primarily held for economic reasons related to the mass destruction of the war. To support this argument, the paper heavily relies on GIS mapping of the POW camp locations in relation to Soviet infrastructure and resources. The paper provides a detailed methodological breakdown of the mapping process in addition to analysis of the maps. A discussion of the paper will follow the presentation.

Shannon Mattern Talk: Ether/Ore: An Atlas of Urban Media
Starts: February 1, 2018, 4:00 pm
Ends: February 1, 2018, 5:30 pm
Location: Sorrels Library Den, Wean Hall, CMU
Description: Studded with sensors, optimized by algorithms, interfaced via dashboards and apps, cities are imagined as computers writ large, planned “from the Internet up.” Yet this new age of sentient urbanism — in which place-based intelligence is reduced to “smartness” — has a long and deep lineage. This talk, drawing on my new book, Code and Clay, Data and Dirt: 5000 Years of Urban Media, will take us on a world tour of cities that embody various materialities of intelligence: both code and clay, data and dirt, ether and ore.
Shannon Mattern Workshop: "Willful Transgressions: Transdisciplinary Teaching"
Starts: February 2, 2018, 10:00 am
Ends: February 2, 2018, 12:00 pm

Description: In this workshop, we’ll look at the various motivations and ambitions behind campaigns for transdisciplinarity — and we’ll explore the opportunities and challenges of transforming trans- or post-disciplinary aspirations into program building, curricular design, and pedagogical practice.

Elise Thorsen, "Using Algorithms to Read Pushkin's Poetry"
Starts: February 9, 2018, 2:30 pm
Ends: February 9, 2018, 4:00 pm
Location: 4217 Posvar Hall, University of Pittsburgh
Description: <p>Quantitative metrics, andparticularly the statistical study of meter and rhyme, has been a core researchmethodology in Russian verse theory and scholarship at least since the earlytwentieth century both among Russian scholars (e.g., Belyj, Taranovski,Gasparov) and abroad (e.g., Shaw, Scherr, Friedberg). Until recently, themethods have had to rely largely on the laborious and unscalable humanidentification and tagging or recording of all individual stress and rhymephenomena, which have then served as input into the (often computer-assisted)statistical analysis of synchronic patterns and diachronic trends in meter andrhyme. Almost the entire corpus of Russian classical verse is now freelyaccessible on the Internet in authoritative scholarly digital editions, andcomputational tools could therefore be used to relieve scholars of the humanlabor previously needed to prepare and collect the data needed for studies inquantitative versification. To the extent that the data preparation andanalysis proceeds algorithmically, intermediate results can be saved andexamined and the entire process can be replicated and verified. Underdiscussion in this presentation are the computational aids that the "Meter,Rhythm, and Rhyme" project team has been developing to build poeticcorpora, with particular attention to Alexander Pushkin’s verse.</p>
