CLiC Dickens

The CLiC Dickens project demonstrates through corpus stylistics how computer-assisted methods can be used to study literary texts and lead to new insights into how readers perceive fictional characters. As part of the project we are developing the web app CLiC, designed specifically for the analysis of literary texts. CLiC Dickens started at the University of Nottingham in 2013, it is now a collaborative project with the University of Birmingham.

If you want to keep up-to-date with news about the project, resources and events, sign up for our newsletter.

If you are a writer of historical fiction interested in using CLiC as a research tool or a creative resource then check out our latest strand of the project CLiC Creative, for further guidance.
