Distant-Reading The New Freewoman with Voyant Tools Lab: Adams, Kate, Austin, Drew

The reduction process of visualizing The New Freewoman corpus helped us to “read” it by showing us that in the first issue that we read on Tuesday, spiritual was a prevalent word used eleven times, but within the other issues of The New Freewoman spiritual was not as prevalent in the text. This method allowed us to see things through a larger lense and made it easier to interpret the importance of the word spiritual throughout the whole text, though we didn’t get any context. Basically, without closely reading The New Freewoman, we wouldn’t have known what word to search in Voyant.
