Description

The With Criminal Intent project will create an intellectual exemplar for the role of data mining in an important historical discipline–the history of crime–and illustrate how the tools of digital humanities can be used to wrest new knowledge from one of the largest humanities data sets currently available: the Old Bailey Online. It will create a seamlessly connected environment, the Newgate Commons, in which scholars can use data mining techniques to select themed texts from the 120 million words of trial records contained in the Old Bailey, and employ these texts as the basis of a study collection in Zotero where they will in turn be available for analysis using TAPoR tools (including quantitative text analysis and visualization). In the process, this project will showcase the integration of online textual resources with bibliographical and analytical tools emerging from Digital Humanities.

Deliverables

1. A
 tested
 model
 for
 how
 large‐scale data collection and visualization 
tools 
can 
interoperate.

2. Three
 model
 tools
 at 
different 
levels 
(corpus,
 collection
 management, 
and 
analytics)
 that
 can
 be 
used
 in
 new
 configurations 
by 
other 
projects.

3. A
 preliminary
 study
 in
 the 
history
 of 
criminality 
in 
Britain 
that 
exemplifies 
how
 the 
new
 research 
environment 
can 
be 
used.
