Digital Text Analysis and the Study of Ignorance: Drilling for Arctic Oil in the 1970s 
Andrew Stuhl, Bucknell University

What can digital text analysis teach us about what we don't know? Agnotology is an emerging field of study that highlights the deliberate production of ignorance as a societal condition. In this talk, I present the historical case of Arctic offshore oil development in the 1970s to explore what digital text analysis can offer the study of agnotology.

The Digital Humanities Summer Scholars Program at Lafayette College 
Angela Perkins, Bec Stargel, Aidy Ung, Lafayette College

Lafayette College's Digital Humanities Summer Scholars is a six-week long (this year's program ran from May 21 to June 28, 2018), funded by the Lafayette College Libraries. The Summer Scholars enjoy presenting their digital research projects to Bucknell University's Digital Scholarship Conference community annually. Our program emphasizes cultivating academic, intellectual, and ethical values in doing original research, as well as engagement with transformative digital technology and multimodal, interdisciplinary research methods/methodology. This year's cohort focused on creating digital research projects which spanned an impressive range of ideas, such as historical plight of Roma people in European analysis of 1930s Japanese postcards issued with a women's magazine in pre-war Tokyo.
