Title:
Distant readings of the geographies in text corpora: Mapping Norman Nicholson’s poems and letters
Authors:
Murrieta-Flores, Patricia ( 0000-0001-9904-0288 ) ; Donaldson, Christopher; Gregory, Ian
Abstract:
This short article summarises a preliminary study of the poetry and correspondence of the English poet Norman Nicholson (1914-1987), undertaken as part of Lancaster University’s Spatial Humanities: Texts, GIS, Places project. In addition to offering a concise explanation of the Spatial Humanities project and the methods it employs, the article explains how working with GIS, visualisation techniques, and distant reading enriches our understanding both of the geography of Nicholson’s poetry and of the spatial dimensions of the network of people with whom he exchanged letters throughout his career.
