BL Labs 2017 Symposium: Data Mining Verse in 18th Century Newspapers by Jennifer Batt (British Library)

British Library: BL Labs 2017 Symposium: Data Mining Verse in 18th Century Newspapers by Jennifer Batt. “Dr Jennifer Batt, Senior Lecturer at the University of Bristol, reported on an investigation in finding verse using text and data-mining methods in a collection of digitised eighteenth-century newspapers in the British Library’s Burney Collection to recover a complex, expansive, ephemeral poetic culture that has been lost to us for well over 250 years.” A ~23 minute video of her presentation and her slide deck is available at the URL I linked to.
