How do you Define DH?

“Digital Humanities” is, for me, a mode of (computational) corpus stylistics.


University of Strathclyde


I’m a PhD student at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, UK), where I study representations of gender in the Early Modern London plays as part of the Mellon-Funded Visualizing English Print 1470-1800 project between Strathclyde, UW-Madison and the Folger Shakespeare Library.

My PhD is about the creation and implementation of a text analysis tool called Genderscope, which applies a universal metric of gendered terms to a given corpus. It is based around the framework of a rhetorical analysis software developed at Carniege Mellon University by David Kaufer and Suguru Ishizaki called Docuscope.
