Caitlin Marley: Ciceronian Networks: A New Approach to Old Letters (DH@OU5 Digital Humanities Symposium)
Caitlin A. Marley graduated from the University of Iowa in May 2018, with her thesis titled Sentiments, Networks, Literary Biography: Towards a Mesoanalysis of Cicero's Corpus. She analyzed Cicero's corpus and life through distant-reading techniques, including a stylometric analysis of Cicero's entire corpus, a sentiment analysis of his orations, and a hybrid network-and-sentiment analysis of his letters. In order to do this, she created a Latin sentiment lexicon influenced by Stoic theories. She is currently an Assistant Teaching Professor at Bowling Green State University.
