Going the RoundsVirality in Nineteenth-Century American Newspapers

Going the Rounds brings together literary, historical, and computational criticism to illuminate the extent, content, and character of information exchange in nineteenth-century US periodicals. Drawing on reprinted texts from the NEH-, Mellon-, and ACLS-funded Viral Texts Project at Northeastern University (http://viraltexts.org), Going the Rounds situates widely reprinted newspaper genres such as lists, scientific reports, recipes, travel accounts, and vignettes at the center of the period’s print culture. Drawing on methods such as text mining, geospatial analysis, and network analysis, the book offers a new, systemic account of information exchange in the nineteenth-century’s primary mass medium.
