Russian Drama Corpus
This year our project sets out to showcase a large-scale digital approach for the history of Russian literature. We
combine social network analysis with structuralist and formalist approaches and apply an automated
data analysis to identify and characterise structural features of hundreds of Russian dramas. Building
on existing digitisations of the Russian literary heritage, we assemble a corpus of Russian plays
from the end of the 18th century to the first third of the 20th century. The aim of the project is to
extract social networks from these texts and apply network metrics to analyse the development of
literature on a factual basis.
