Tools to explore the social, economic and policy impacts of an historic pandemic

Gale Digital Scholar Lab uses high-powered text analysis and visualization tools to mine historical material found in the Gale Primary Sources database.  

In this webinar, an example research topic, the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, will be used to showcase how the lab can create and analyze custom content sets from archives like the Public Health Archives, China and the Modern World and a collection of Gale Historical Newspapers. 

Pairing the lab’s computational analysis tools with high-quality content from GALE Primary Sources, allows researchers to identify previously undiscovered data, test theories and provide solutions to issues and challenges society is facing today. 

Presenter: Damian Almeida from Gale, a Cengage Company.
