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 TEI-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:
- 51,090 "author genders": manually-identified gender for works in the ESTC, printed in England 1789-99
- 208 Gothic works, 1753 – 1857: bibliographic data, with “Gothic motifs” identified by Ann Tracy
- 499 Gothic works, 1753 – 1835: bibliographic data, with “Gothic types” identified by Frederick Frank
- 178 Gothic works, 1753 – 1857: bibliographic data, with “Gothic motifs” and “Gothic types”
