Seeing Stories in the Humanities and Sciences
This project aims to develop a new way of visualizing dynamic interactions between characters (nodes or entities) over time. The goal of this project is to achieve a prototype for a narrative profile consisting of stacked character network diagrams as they shift over the course of a narrative. The result would offer a new way of comparing narrative structures (across genres, eras and cultures) in addition to offering scholars a special tool for following the activities of individual characters or groups of characters (women, political groups, family involvement, etc.) throughout the course of a narrative.
