Close and Distant Reading via Named Entity Network Visualization: A Case Study of Women Writers Online (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Close and Distant Reading via Named Entity Network Visualization: A Case Study of Women Writers Online
Author: Sarah Campbell
Author: Zheng-yan Yu
Author: Sarah Connell
Author: Cody Dunne
Abstract: Close reading and distant reading are widely used in digital humanities and can benefit from information visualizations. Digital humanities scholars have curated numerous TEI-encoded textual collections which provide the data necessary for blending both close and distant reading – however we do not have tools to support general users in conducting these blended analyses. In this paper we focus on one such collection: Women Writers Online (WWO). We contribute the design and implementation of a multiple coordinated view network visualization to facilitate close and distant reading in WWO and a transparent view into our iterative design process to help guide future designers and humanists in applying our approach to other textual collections.

Allusions in the Age of the Digital: Four ways of looking at a corpus (Article)
Title: Allusions in the Age of the Digital: Four ways of looking at a corpus
Author: Amanda Henrichs
Abstract: This exhibit considers intertextuality in a corpus consisting of the literary works of the Sidney family: Mary Sidney Herbert (Lady Pembroke), Mary Sidney (Lady Wroth), Robert Sidney, and Philip Sidney. In particular, it examines an apparent intertextual gap between Wroth and Pembroke, who are known to have had a close and friendly relationship. By examining this gap through close and distant reading methods, this exhibit explores the larger question of how a shift in methods alters our understanding of historical intertextuality.

Female Platonics in Pix's The Innocent Mistress (1697) and Centlivres The Platonic Lady (1707) (Article)
Title: Female Platonics in Pix's The Innocent Mistress (1697) and Centlivres The Platonic Lady (1707)
Author: Heather Ladd
Abstract: Mary Pix’s The Innocent Mistress reimagined the stock character of the platonic lady, turning it away from a misogynistic characterization to one of moral strength. Susanna Centlivre’s play The Platonic Lady built upon Pix’s work, showing how platonic love can be figured as a legitimate response to the restrictive gender roles of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century England.

Rhetorical Intertextualities of M. R.'s The Mother's Counsell, or Live Within Compasse, 1630 (Article)
Title: Rhetorical Intertextualities of M. R.'s The Mother's Counsell, or Live Within Compasse, 1630
Author: Elizabeth Ann Mackay
Abstract: While mothers’ books are gaining increasing critical attention, M. R.’s The Mothers Counsell has largely been overlooked. The Mothers Counsell provides an excellent example of the intertextual dynamics at play in many mother’s books as a part of commonplacing culture, as such forms gave women a voice to speak to both their daughters and the world at large.

To the Most Distant Parts: Writing the World in the WWO Corpus (Article)
Title: To the Most Distant Parts: Writing the World in the WWO Corpus
Author: Samuel Diener
Abstract: This exhibit presents a two-stage, mixed-method study of the Women Writers Online corpus to examine how its authors—primarily focusing on British women writers—engage with place and location. The first stage discusses the methodologies used to identify and isolate the various locations within the corpus as a whole. The second stage examines Eliza Haywood’s 18th-century periodical, The Female Spectator, to present an example of how British women understood their role in Britain’s imperialistic endeavours.

“‘Context and Connexion’: Encoding Margaret Cavendish in and for the Classroom. (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: “‘Context and Connexion’: Encoding Margaret Cavendish in and for the Classroom.
Abstract: Prior to the Cavendish renaissance, Margaret Cavendish—like virtually all early modern women—was excluded from the academic study and teaching of English literature, despite her groundbreaking role as an author and natural philosopher. This systematic erasure has its origins in pedagogical practices developed around the teaching of a canon of male authors and notions of authorship. By gaining a better understanding of this especially bold and productive female author, we also gain insight into problems with equity and representation within higher education. To this end, this panel brings you the paradigm shifting work of Sarah Connell, whose dedication to the Women Writers Online Project (https://www.wwp.northeastern.edu/wwo/) has significantly expanded access to early women writers; and the careful bibliographic and digitization efforts of Liza Blake, whose Margaret Cavendish’s Poems and Fancies, A digital critical edition (http://library2.utm.utoronto.ca/poemsandfancies/) offers the first fully collated and digitized edition of a Cavendish text.

Intertextual Networks: Theorizing and Encoding Textual Connections in Early Women’s Writing (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Intertextual Networks: Theorizing and Encoding Textual Connections in Early Women’s Writing
Author: Sarah Connell
Author: Julia Flanders
Abstract: Intertextual Networks is an initiative of the Women Writers Project (WWP) at Northeastern University aimed at exploring and theorizing the representation of intertextuality, with a focus on the citation and quotation practices of the authors represented in the WWP’s digital collection, Women Writers Online (WWO). The WWP’s work on Intertextual Networks incorporates several strands: focused projects conducted by individual research collaborators; sustained examination of the modalities of intertextuality as revealed by the work of our staff and collaborators; and a large-scale encoding project creating a bibliography of all the texts named or quoted in WWO, linking the texts in that bibliography with their occurrences in the WWO corpus, and substantially expanding the encoding of intertextual phenomena in our textbase. In this paper, we will discuss the aims and methods of the project, offering models for encoding complex intertextual features and setting out some processes for the systematic application of additional markup to an existing corpus. We will also consider the implications of this project for the larger ecology of digitized collections focused on gender and on women’s writing.

In Praise of the Unpredictable: Exploratory Research Methods for Digital Collections (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: In Praise of the Unpredictable: Exploratory Research Methods for Digital Collections
Abstract: Using the Women Writers Project as an exemplar, this paper will discuss methods for conducting exploratory research with digital collections and, in particular, for identifying research possibilities that may not have been anticipated by a collection’s original developers. The talk will examine several methods of digital scholarship—including text encoding, data visualization, text analysis at scale, and XML-based transformations—and consider best practices for accessing the rich layers of information available in many digital collections. The paper will conclude with some thoughts on how developers and curators can build collections that will support a broad range of use cases.

Writing, Reception, Intertextuality: Networking Women’s Writing. (Article)
Title: Writing, Reception, Intertextuality: Networking Women’s Writing.
Author: Sarah Connell
Author: Julia Flanders
Abstract: Reading has received renewed scrutiny in the digital age, a result of the defamiliarization of the medium that has also brought about a rethinking of what is meant by “text,” “book,” and “author.” Fascination with large-scale data analysis has shifted attention toward modes of reading that sample the source to produce a statistical artifact from which we can in turn read clusterings of words, shifts in topic or register, or changing orthographic habits. These remote reading practices, however, fail to capitalize on valuable modeling of the individual text, but more recently researchers have been exploring ways of bringing these two ends of the digital spectrum into closer conversation. This article explores the study of readership and reception of pre-Victorian women’s writing through these emerging digital methods, examining two collections (Women Writers Online and Women Writers in Review) related to early women’s writing with large-scale analytical methods that engage with the detailed textual models in these collections’ metadata and markup.
