QuaDramA – Quantitative Drama Analytics – is a research project we currently conduct at Stuttgart University. The aim of the project is the development of new methods to analyse dramatic texts and the investigation of drama-historic developments using these new methods. The core idea of QuaDramA is the complementation of analysing structural information (e.g., acts and scenes) with an NLP-supported analysis of the figure speech.

We have recently started to annotate coreference chains in dramatic texts. In this loose series of blog posts, we will discuss interesting findings and examples. This post revisits the annotation tool question.
QuaDramA will be part of the German-speaking DH conference DHd, which takes place in Cologne in Feb/March 2018. Benjamin Krautter’s submission got accepted, and will be presented as a talk in session 4A (digital literary studies) on Thursday, March 1, 9-10:30 a.m. See below for a short summary.
We have just released a new version of our R package for the quantitative analysis of plays, and want to highlight a few changes here. In QuaDramA, the R package is used for data analysis, after natural language processing has taken place. The package therefore relies on pre-processed corpora.
