An undergraduate Data+ team (Alexis Malone, Statistical Science '19; Sandra Luksic, Philosophy '20; and Nathan Liang, Psychology '21) studied how women are represented in women's magazines. This project touched on digital humanities themes such as quantifying cultural phenomena, merging feminist theory with data science, data visualization and storytelling, and the limitations of computer science. The team will speak about overcoming technical challenges and their experiences using resources inside and outside Duke.
