19-Century Networks is a database of 7,500 writers and other members of 19th-century French literary networks.
The dataset contains basic demographic data about the members of these literary networks, such as gender, birthplace, death place, birth and death years. It also includes network classifications fundamental to nineteenth-century Europe, including academic affiliations, salon membership, participation in literary movements, political affiliations, and military affiliations. It aims to characterize exchange between people in literary, cultural, political, and other networks.
Melanie Conroy, assistant professor of French at the University of Memphis, is the current project lead.
