Network Analysis of Dramatic Texts

About the Project

In 2013, Peer Trilcke proposed a Digital Literary Network Analysis (dlina). Since then, Frank Fischer, Mathias Göbel, Dario Kampkaspar, Christopher Kittel, Hanna-Lena Meiners, and Danil Skorinkin have joined the working group. In the meantime, we processed hundreds of dramatic texts ranging from Greek tragedies to 20th-century plays. We’re especially looking into large German, French, English, and Russian corpora. First results have been presented at several conferences, and there’s more to come.

We will publish all our results, code, corpora, teaching material here on our GitHub. Plus, we will keep you posted on our blog.
