This forms part of a session at the ALPSP Conference, chaired by Duncan Campbell of Wiley, which will adopt a broader view of text and data mining and demonstrate the potential that text mining and analysis techniques have for developing new insights across a broad range of scholarly disciplines.

Dr Beatrice Alex of the University of Edinburgh will introduce Palmpsest, an interdisciplinary collaboration between literary scholars and the computer sciences, while Dr Judith Bara of Queen Mary University London will consider how TDM can inform research into the changing nature of Parliamentary debate on financial impropriety.
