Dr Cordell works on the Viral Texts project, which uses “robust data mining tools to discover reprinted content across large-scale archives of nineteenth-century newspapers and magazines“. He was in Australia for the DH2015 conference and before this talk had just met with the Trove team.

Relevance to the study

The tracing of a fugitive poem across the recycling network of nineteenth century newspaper editors all across the USA was presented in a helpful format that could be useful for indicating the spread and history of the ‘me fecit’ term.
