RC Data

RC Data gives you access to Romantic Circles' rich trove of data, and highlights new approaches to integrating Romantic studies and the digital humanities.

RC Data turns two decades of Romantic Circles into a rich resource for digital humanities work. As a part of our redesign, we're building new and exciting ways to interact with Romantic Circles, from participatory annotation, to mapping and timelines, to accessing a range of corpuses upon which to build your own scholarship. RC Data is an experimental and evolving space, and we look forward to sharing more with you in the days to come. 

Right now, you can learn more about experimenting with our data in a variety of ways. We have prepared three small examples of data-driven work out of Romantic Circles' holdings, as well as a list of example tools that our team has already started using to learn more about our trove.
