Genealogy of Texts and Ideas: Looking Back and Forth through Early English Books Online

A two-day workshop and follow-up activities for early modern literature scholars, linguists, and computer scientists to consider how the Bookworm textual analysis tool could be used with the Early English Books Online-Text Creation Partnership corpus.

We propose a workshop on how to extend and customize a graphical user interface (GUI) for Bookworm, the well-established open-source text analysis and visualization tool. Hosted by Rice University's Humanities Research Center, the workshop will focus on applying Bookworm to the Early English Books Online (EEBO) corpus and leverage expertise in various disciplines including history, linguistics, genomics, and bioinformatics to design a powerful, intuitive, open-source text analysis package to allow novice users instant access to the utility and promise of digital text analysis.
