The Distant Reader

This is the new, temporary home page of the Distant Reader. The Distant Reader is both a command-line application as well as a Web-based service intended to enable the student, researcher, or scholar to analyze ("read") narrative texts as scale. Examples include: the totality of assigned readings for Philosophy 101, the content for a scientific literature review, or the complete works of a given author or genre.

The Web-based interface is currently offline as it gets moved from one host to another. It is expected to be back online before the first day of Autumn.
