Description: Oceanic Exchanges: Tracing Global Information Networks in Historical New spaper Repositories, 1840 -1914 (OcEx) brings together leading efforts in computational periodicals res earch from the nine academic partners in US, Mexico, Germany, the Netherlands, Finland an d the UK to examine patterns of information flow across national and linguistic boundaries in nineteenth century newspapers by linking digitized newspaper corpora currently siloed in natio nal collections. OcEx seeks to break through the conceptual, institutional, and political barriers which have limited working with big humanities data by bringing together historical newspaper experts from different countries and disciplines around common questions; by actively cro ssing the national boundaries that have previously separated digitized newspaper corpora through computat ional analysis; and by illustrating the global connectedness of nineteenth-century newspapers in way s hidden by typical national organizations of digital cultural heritage.
