CURRENT PHD THESIS RESEARCH

Understanding the London Irish Immigrant Experience through Large-Scale Textual Analysis: 1801-1820

Historical research of the nineteenth century paints a negative picture of the London attitude towards Irish immigrants. Strife sells. But is this interpretation representative of opinion? And how can we check?

Since much of the historical research has been written, the world has changed drastically. Massive, reliable, scholarly datasets have appeared online in formats that allow large-scale interrogation.

My research asks what those scholarly datasets can tell us about the relationship between the Irish and the locals that we couldn't previously ask. To do this I am employing a range of techniques, including distant reading, close reading, and textual analysis to see the strengths and limits of each in the pursuit of understanding about the past.example of an anti-Irish caricature
