Time: Tuesday, 6 March, 5.15 pm GMT

Dan Cohen (George Mason University)

'Finding Meaning in a Million Victorian Books'

Dan Cohen, Director of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media and an Associate Professor of History at George Mason University, will be presenting on his work on text mining Victorian literature.
This live streamed seminar, however, will be different from our usual set-up, as Dan will be presenting from Fairfax, Virginia so participants in Senate House will therefore be joining watching Dan give his paper on a big screen projector.
This is something of an experiment as we’ve never tried to stream live online at the same time as watch remotely from Senate House, but fits with the seminar's aim to be as innovative in presenting as the scholars are in their work. So please do join us for a paper that promises to be highly interesting, from one of the experts in the field, but also for something slightly different. A paper presented in America to an audience in England whilst streamed live to the rest of the world.

The live stream will start around 5.15pm GMT (12.15pm in Washington)
