  • Taxonomizing the Texts: Towards Cultural-Scale Models of Full Text. Colin Allen, Jaimie Murdock. Indiana University Bloomington. Allen and Murdock will carry out a cultural-scale investigation and topic modeling on HT public-domain full text through random sampling to select collections according to the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH).
  • The Trace of Theory. Geoffrey Rockwell, Laura Mandell, Stefan Sinclair, Matthew Wilkens, Susan Brown. University of Alberta, Texas A&M University, University of Notre Dame. Rockwell, Mandell, Sinclair, Wilkens, and Brown aim to subset theoretical subsets from the HT public corpus and apply large-scale topic modeling on the subsets. The researchers will develop tools and computational methods for tracking the concept of "theory”.
  • Additionally, an ACS award was made to Dr. Michelle Alexopolous, a scholar in economics from the University of Toronto, who is tracking technology diffusion through time using the HT corpus.
