Blog

The Sea of Books is the blog for the UCD Humanities Institute’s Nation, Genre and Gender project, which uses social network analysis to look under the bonnet of a corpus of 19th and early 20th century novels from Ireland and Britain.
The Sea of Books blog is where members of the team post progress updates, announce upcoming events and publications, and talk about any aspects of the novels that takes our fancy.
