Paul Atkinson

Research overview

I am a social and cultural historian with an interest in numerical techniques. I am employed on the ERC-funded Spatial Humanities project. I currently study influences on infant mortality in nineteenth-century England and Wales. My work uses geographical information systems (GIS) to examine patterns in Victorian statistics. I also use corpus linguistics to explore large corpora of digitised Victorian documents such as the British Library Nineteenth Century Newspapers collection.
