Romantic Cartographies: Georeading Spatial Elements from Romantic Texts


This paper will present the results of my current project Romantic Cartographies, which provides spatial interpretations of English and German Romantic texts based on an approach I call georeading. Georeading applies digital tools (named entity recognition and GIS) to find place names from texts and thereby converting texts into maps.
