History, Historiography and the Hermeneutics of the Hard Drive

Abstract

This paper contrasts the traditional metaphors for digital forensics – computer science, geology and archeology – with the new metaphors of history and historiography. Narratology, the study of how narratives operate, is used to develop a construct for identifying narratives from within digital evidence. Knowledge management is suggested as a core digital forensic process. The paper describes how the investigative paradigm and traditional theories of forensic science can be integrated using two theoretical constructs, the hermeneutic and narrative theories of digital forensics. Also, natural language processing techniques are used to demonstrate how subjects can be identified from the Enron email corpus.
