The nora project has new content online. Of greatest interest perhaps is the ability to experiment with a demo based on our work here at Maryland; there's also significant new material under Screenshots, and new content in Publications/Reports. (All of these are available under the Work In Progress section.)

Nora is a multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary Mellon-funded project to apply text mining and visualization techniques to large humanities-oriented digital library collections (starting with a 10,000-text corpus of 18th and 19th century British and American literature). MITH, in collaboration with HCIL, is one of several institutional partners in the grant. Matthew Kirschenbaum, MITH's Acting Associate Director, serves at the Maryland PI. Martha Nell Smith, MITH's founding Director, is co-PI.

Matthew Kirschenbaum also recently participated on behalf of nora in The Valve''s recent book event for Franco Moretti's Graphs, Maps, Trees. His contribution is entitled Poetry, Patterns, and Provocation.
