Beckie Fuller, "Sentiment Analysis of Letters using the AFINN Lexicon Score." About the project: Using content from three letter collections, Beckie used the Sentiment Analysis Tool from the Digital Scholar Lab (DSL) to see if she could track the positive and negative emotions conveyed in letters from women missionaries to their family members and close friends.

Elli Wilkinson, "Analyzing the Life and Activism of Fanie Lou Hamer." About the project: Using the Tulane Amistad Research Center's collection, "Fannie Lou Hamer: Papers of a Civil Rights Activist, Political Activist, and Woman," Elli created a wordcloud of a selection of documents about Hamer's life, and an accompanying timeline with select documents from that collection.
