Quantitative Research in Literary History
The self descrpition (2013-03-28) reads:
The Stanford Literary Lab — founded in 2010 by Matthew Jockers and Franco Moretti — discusses, designs, and pursues literary research of a digital and quantitative nature. The Lab is open to all students and faculty at Stanford — and, on a more ad hoc basis, to students and faculty from other institutions.
We engage in a variety of projects, ranging from dissertation chapters to individual and group publications, lectures, courses, conference panels, and even short books. Typically, our research takes the form of a group “experiment,” and extends over a period of one or two years. Under “Projects” you will find a list of our current activities, most of which are open to further collaboration; under “People”, a list of those associated with our research. And you can download all our published work under the heading of “Pamphlets”.
The web project is spectacular with its edition of research pamphlets — inspiring resources of quantitative research in literary history.
The four pamphelts published tus far are all available with data and diagrams, here the quick access:
