Borrow A Tool

Often, while reading others’ scholarly work, I find myself wishing I could repurpose their code or corpora for purposes of my own, rather than re-inventing the wheel. This page is meant to serve as an open invitation for requests: simply email me at lawrenceevalyn [at] gmail [dot] com and I will be happy to help!

I have code which can do the following:

  • Convert XML-encoded plays into social network graphs.
  • For each node in a network (i.e., character in a social network), find its average degree of separation from all other nodes.
  • Count the words spoken by each character in a TEI-encoded play.

I also offer up the datasets I have personally digitized:

  • 208 Gothic works, 1753 – 1857, with “Gothic motifs” identified by Ann Tracy
  • 499 Gothic works, 1753 – 1835, with “Gothic types” identified by Frederick Frank
  • 178 Gothic works, 1753 – 1857, with “Gothic motifs” and “Gothic types”
