Digging into 18th-century literary culture
Commonplace Cultures

Round Three Digging into Data project in partnership with the ARTFL Project and Computation Institute (CI) at the University of Chicago and the University of Oxford’s e-Research Centre (OeRC) and Voltaire Foundation (VF). 

Commonplace Cultures is a collaborative project between the University of Chicago, Oxford University, and the Australian National University. Awarded a Round Three Digging into Data grant in 2014, its current goals are to bring the results of its data mining efforts to the general public, making the more than 40 million identified shared passages drawn from the ECCO (Eighteenth Century Collection Online) database available in searchable form.
