This five-year project runs from 2012-16 and is funded by the European Research Council under a Starting Researcher Grant. Our aim is to create a step-change in how place, space and geography are explored in the Humanities. Building on Lancaster University’s technical expertise in Digital Humanities, Corpus Linguistics and Geospatial Analysis, as well as its applied expertise in the history of the English Lake District, we are developing and applying methodologies for analysing unstructured texts—including large corpora of historical books, periodicals and official reports—within a Geographic Information Systems (or GIS) environment.
We’re excited to be taking part in the following events later this month!
