Mimetic textualism

July 22, 2008

Although I’ve played around with Wordle (h/t Daniel Little) before, I admit that I never thought of using it for a particular form of academic navel-gazing: generating text-clouds of one’s books. Thus, following in the immortal footsteps of Henry Farrell, Kirean Healy, and Steven Taylor, I present….

The Struggle for Power in Early Modern Europe: Religious Conflict, Dynastic Empires, and International Change (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 2009) as seen through Wordle.

And Harry Potter and International Relations (Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield, 2006), also as seen through Wordle.
