Nation, Gender, Genre: A Comparative Social Network Analysis of Irish and British Fiction (1800-1922)

Combining literary and data science expertise, this project maps and analyses social networks in Irish and English fiction, 1800-1922. It explores how writers and readers have imagined the connections between people in their society and turned those connections into plots. The project, funded by the Irish Research Council, has completed work on 46 novels to date. The three initial case studies here are showcased to demonstrate the new perspectives which social network analysis can open up on well known novels.
