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.
The CLiC project is currently running a Digital Reading Competition for pupils of Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. For details on how to participate, visit the competition website.
We are also working with the National Literacy Trust to gather insights about how young people perceive the future of digital reading. Your class are invited to complete our Digital Reading Survey.
Professor Michaela Mahlberg and Viola Wiegand from the CLiC Project will be giving a talk as part of the Aston University's Centre for Critical Inquiry into Society and Culture (CCISC) seminar series on 30 April 2019.
We are releasing the brand-new version 2.0 of the CLiC web app with a refreshed look, many new features and additional texts. As part of the upgrade, the CLiC server will be down on Thursday 7 March.
