Project: Documenting Offshore Oil Development: Digitizing, Organizing, and Analyzing Archival Materials Relating to the First Offshore Oil Well in the North American Arctic, 1972-1976
Faculty Member: Andrew Stuhl
DP&S Liaison: Diane Jakacki
Date: Summer 2017
Stuhl has gathered a large corpus of government documents from the National Archives in Canada that present different perspectives in negotiation of drilling rights in the Arctic during the 1970s. Over the summer, student Ashley Vecchio worked with Professor Stuhl to prepare the corpus and then undertake text analysis (topic modelling and sentiment analysis) on a significant portion of the corpus.
