Event description

Description

The Pratchett Project team at Trinity College Dublin is organising a hackathon to get fans of Terry Pratchett involved in the research they are doing.

In this full-day event, you're invited to bring your laptop to Trinity to get to grips with some quantitative research on the publication history of Pratchett's work around the world. You don't need to be a Pratchett fan to come along. Anybody with an interest in digital humanities will enjoy this.

The day will also feature interviews with Colin Smythe, Pratchett's agent, and Rob Wilkins, Pratchett's assistant, and you will have the chance to ask your questions too!

Rundown:

10-11: Welcome and Setup

11-12: Data Crunching

12-1: Colin Smythe interview

1-2: Lunch

2-4: More Data Crunching

4-5: Rob Wilkins Interview

This event is suitable for anybody aged 12+ with an interest in Pratchett, data science, digital humanities, translation studies, or library studies.

Registration is free, but places are limited. So booking is a must. This event is going to be popular. So make sure you get your ticket early!
