Text Mining the Novel

Welcome to NovelTM, a multi-university digital humanities initiative led by Andrew Piper at McGill University. This project brings together researchers and partners from 21 different academic and non-academic institutions to produce the first large-scale quantitative history of the novel. Our aim is to bring new computational approaches in the field of text mining to the study of literature as well as bring the unique knowledge of literary studies to bear on larger debates about data mining and the place of information technology within society. For more information about the project, please see our About page.
