Visualizing English Print

Welcome to the Visualizing English Print (VEP) project is a Mellon-funded, interdisciplinary project with members from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of Strathclyde, and the Folger Shakespeare Library. Their mission is to scale humanist scholarship to ‘big data’ by removing several barriers to statistically analyzing digital Early Modern English texts, like those released by the Text Creation Partnership. They offer plain text corpora of Early Modern English texts and visualization tools to explore them. They also provide the text processing pipeline used to curate the corpora. Their website equips you with the necessary tools to make your own corpora, visually explore them, and download preliminary metadata.
