Mapping the Civil War Through HathiTrust's One Billion Pages of Books

In a collaboration with noted Civil War historian Vernon Burton, Kalev mapped the geography of the Civil War discourse through HathiTrust's nearly one billion pages of digitized books 1800-1923, developing new approaches to geographic narrative analysis and mapping to cope with the scale, historical discourse, and complexities of working with nearly a billion pages of material. The first results of this collaboration were presented in Professor Burton's Presidential Address to the Southern History Association.
