Parliamentary proceedings reflect our history from centuries ago to the present day, through times of war and peace, and of economic crisis and prosperity. With carefully curated proceedings becoming available in digital form in many countries, new research opportunities arise to analyze this data, on an unprecedented longitudinal scale, and across different nations, cultures, and systems of political representation.

This project will develop a tool to assist in qualitative and quantitative diachronic comparative research performed on large text corpora. This will inform a new approach to the history of parliamentary communication and discourse, and address new research questions.
