Python in digital humanities research

Episode #230, published Wed, Sep 18, 2019, recorded Tue, Aug 27, 2019

You've often heard me talk about Python as a superpower. It can amplify whatever you're interested in or what you have specialized in for your career.

This episode is an amazing example of this. You'll meet Cornelis van Lit. He is a scholar of medieval Islamic philosophy and woks at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. What he is doing with Python is pretty amazing.

Even if you aren't interested in digital humanities and that type of research, the example set by Cornelis is a blueprint for bringing Python into your world and for those around you. I think you'll enjoy this conversion.
