I am looking for a collaborator with computational linguistic skills for a project mining the dialogue of the U.S. television program Supernatural (CW Network, 2005-present). My goal is to demonstrate, through textual analysis, the originality of the dialogue, the breadth of words and phrases used by the writers, the way language is used to distinguish characters and reveal character traits, etc.The product of this project will be an article for publication in a peer-reviewed venue.
The project heureCLÉA aims for the development of a so-called “digital heuristic”– a functional module that supports literary scholars in interpreting and annotating texts. To achieve this, the module “learns” from human-made annotation in order to progress toward an automated generation of textual markup. In our project we explore this approach by way of example: the semantic analysis of time-related phenomena in narrative texts. We envisage the following three phases of development:
What will the project do?
The proposed project has two main aims:
1: to provide a scholarly, annotated, and complete edition of Hannah More’s surviving correspondence of some 1600 letters.
2: to provide that edition in a freely accessible, and sustainable, digital format.
I am trying to put together an electronic edition of Claude McKay's 1922 collection of poems. There are already a number of different sources for page images (Google Books, the Internet Archive); I'd like to use these to build a solid, well-edited, and lightly marked up TEI edition of the collection, from which we could generate a number of output formats (HTML, ePub, PDF). In addition to the text of McKay's poems itself, the goal would be a sort of "Norton Critical Edition" with a well edited text and histories of the poems with appropriate annotations.

Electronic Book Review (ebr) is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal of critical writing produced and published by the emergent digital literary network. ebr threads include essays addressing a wide range of topics across the arts, sciences, and humanities. Our editors are particularly interested in critically savvy, in-depth work addressing the digital future of literature, theory, criticism, and the arts.
The project focuses on the technique of zoom and its approaches across different media, from a comparative perspective. We are interested to compare the particularities of zooming in cartography, photography, film and textual materials, trying to identify patterns of expressivity on the level of meaning, aesthetic and cognitive reflection, and their possible uses in creating new digital paradigms.
ELMCIP's Electronic Literature Knowledge Base is a open acess research resource documenting activity in the field of electronic literature. It provides cross-referenced, contextualized information about authors, creative works, critical writing, and practices. The ELMCIP Knowledge Base depends on the active participation of a community of international researchers and writers working in and around the digital literary arts.
