In this presentation, Glenn Roe (Université Paris-Sorbonne, CELLF–Voltaire Foundation, Oxford) will discuss the ERC-funded ModERN Project, a 5-year research programme that aims to integrate cutting-edge computational technologies with traditional methodologies to reassemble and analyse the conceptual and intertextual networks of the French Enlightenment. In particular, this presentation will explore some of the initial challenges encountered in year one, including corpus construction, large-scale text alignment, noise reduction, and preliminary network analyses.
