Proposed panel on digital humanities

For SHEAR 2017 I’m interested in bringing together a panel on the digital humanities – an encouraged category. My paper will examine how the Ngram database helps map changes in women’s roles, 1800-1850. If you have a presentation on a related topic, or would like to chair or comment, please contact me at megnal@yorku.ca
