People, places and professions in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography for editing

The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (ODNB) is the work of roughly 10,000 scholars, runs to 60 volumes in print, and is made up of more than 62 million words.

Information overload is not a new problem in the humanities. In this presentation, Chris Warren, Associate Professor of Literary and Cultural Studies at Carnegie Mellon University, will use digital humanities methods to map the people, places and professions of the ODNB in a new way.
