The Concept Lab is a digital humanities project situated within the Centre for Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences that seeks to apply computational methods to historical and contemporary corpora to explore “histories of words, concepts and usages that heretofore have provided the common currency of the history of ideas,” among other goals. I will present tools and methods that we have been applying to investigate changes in associations between words over time and to identify networks of highly associated terms in large diachronic corpora. Finally, I will highlight a few case studies that illustrate how these techniques can be applied in tandem with qualitative methods to shed light on lexical and conceptual histories.
