Phys .org: Multidisciplinary study provides new insights about French Revolution. “New research from experts in history, computer science and cognitive science shines fresh light on the French Revolution, showing how rhetorical and institutional innovations won acceptance for the ideas that built the French republic’s foundation and inspired future democracies. The researchers, including an Indiana University professor, doctoral student and undergraduate, used data-mining techniques to comb through transcripts of 40,000 speeches from the two-year tenure of the National Constituent Assembly, the first parliament of the revolution.”

Age of Revolutions: Digitization Is The Order Of The Day At The Newberry Library (French Revolution)

Age of Revolutions: Digitization Is The Order Of The Day At The Newberry Library. “Published between 1780 and 1810, the 30,000+ pamphlets of Voices of the Revolution represent an unparalleled corpus of material charting the political, social, and religious history of the French Revolution. For the project, two Newberry collections, the French Revolution Collection and the Louis XVI Trial and Execution Collection, have been digitized in their entirety. The pamphlets are of particular interest to scholars of the French Revolution, but their value is not limited to specialists of French or European history.”
