Arts de la scène et Culture Analytics

While stage arts have widely questioned "new" technologies from an aesthetical point of view, the application of the these latter on the former ones study is a nascent phenomenon. The digital humanities could be the flag of new scientific perspectives for stage arts studies as it is for other domains? After an overview on the "two waves" (Presner, 2010) of digital humanities in the field of theatrical studies, I will analyze more specifically the possibilities given by Culture analytics, that is the data oriented analyse of culture. Starting from the methodologies experimented in the Culture Analytics program at UCLA, I will show the several possibilities in studying, analyzing and documentation in a "medium data" context.
