Overview

Enhancing Historical Research with Text Analysis Tools

This site hosts an ongoing discussion about how text-mining and analysis tools can answer old questions and reveal new ones.

Our panelists examine some current tools with an eye toward their potential utility for their own historical research. Discussion and suggestions by the panelists about useful features and existing limitations will result in a white paper that envisions new directions for the development of such tools.

Panelists can login or register here.

The project is organized by the Center for History and New Media and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
