project: Inscriptions of Roman Cyrenaica (IRCyr)

The project aims to assemble an online corpus of all the material gathered by Prof Joyce Reynolds during her numerous visits to Libya.

The new corpus will be presented as a series of documents; but it will also link to an online map of Roman Cyrenaica, being prepared as part of the Pleiades project ( [read more]

The Trinity Irish Art Research Centre (TRIARC) was established in 2003, within the Discipline of the History of Art, to promote research and education in Irish art history.

Holdings comprise a number of media, but of particular significance are the image collections which currently form the core of an ambitious digitisation project. The archive also includes a collection of around 2,000 books, catalogues and journals on Irish art. [read more...]

project: A Corpus of Scottish Medieval Parish Churches

Apart from a few widely known examples, such as Edinburgh St Giles or Perth St John, the medieval parish churches of Scotland are very rarely dealt with in discussions of architecture in Britain in the Middle Ages. This is largely because they have never been systematically studied as a body, and there is surprisingly little knowledge of how much of medieval date survives. [read more]

eventresources: Word Frequency and Keyword Extraction

Report from the Methods Network seminar hosted by Tony McEnery, Department of Linguistics and English Language, Lancaster University (8 September 2005).

Word frequency has come to prominence as the availability of corpora has grown. Word frequency, and a focus upon relative word frequency through keyword analysis, are enabled by the availability of large quantities of machine readable text and appropriate searching software. However the approach to word frequency has changed in recent years to become more central to linguistic theory and to various applications of linguistics. [read more...]

project: The Cinema Authorship of Lindsay Anderson

The principal aim of this project is to evaluate Lindsay Anderson’s claim to the status of authorship by comparing his private thoughts about his work with (a) his public statements about the extent and nature of his achievements; and (b) the way his ideas were received by the various publics to which they were addressed. The research proposed calls for an approach that compares information gleaned from Anderson’s diaries and other personal papers (including correspondence with friends and colleagues) with an analysis of the way his film projects were received – by producers, professional r [read more]
