Welcome to the WWP Lab! This is the experimental area of Women Writers Online, a space for exploration and play where we make available some of the new tools, visualizations, and technologies we are working with. Some of these tools may eventually find their way into Women Writers Online, while others will always remain prototypes or proofs of concept. Explore the Lab, then let us know what you think. We welcome experimentation—if you have an idea for an interesting visualization, let us know! And, if you would like to use the XML files for the texts in Women Writers Online in your own research, please send an email with a brief description of your research plans to wwp@neu.edu
