An exhibit highlighting Billings’ career and life will be on display in the Scholars Commons November 1 - December 3, and an online component can be viewed on Scalar.

In this workshop, participants will install and learn the basics of TWARC, a Python script used to harvest and archive data from Twitter. Many disciplines use social media data. As a literary historian, I use Tweets featuring poems of resistance for reception studies. But only recent Tweets are easy to find using Twitter’s search apparatus, and Tweets are only archived for two years, making the public discourses of resistance movements ephemeral. Event Details
