Verhoeven, Deb 2012, New cinema history and the computational turn, in WCCA 2012 : “Beyond Art, Beyond Humanities, Beyond Technology : A New Creativity”, World Congress of Communication and the Arts Conference Proceedings, COPEC – Science and Education Research Council, [Guimarães, Portugal].
This paper outlines how the digitisation of both the film industry and contemporary research practices bear on the work of the new cinema historian. How might the opportunities presented by an unprecedented proliferation of data for example, also challenge the unspoken assumptions and ordinary practices of conventional film studies research? And how might the 'computational turn' present opportunities (and challenges) for a revisionist cinema history at the intersection of qualitative historiographies (focussed on the social experience of the cinema) and quantitative research approaches such as data mining, empirical analysis and digital visualisations?
