CLiC: studying literature in the digital age

michaela Mahlberg (University of Birmingham)

14th march 2018

The CLiC Dickens project demonstrates through corpus stylistics how computer-assisted methods can be used to study literary texts and lead to new insights into how readers perceive fictional characters. The project was funded by the AHRC and resulted in the development of the web app CLiC (Corpus Linguistics in Context), designed specifically for the analysis of literary texts. This talk will demonstrate how CLiC can be used to support stylistic analysis.
