Nation, Genre & Gender website
Client: UCD Digital Humanities Institute
Project brief: To create a website, video and podcasting for 'Nation, Genre & Gender: A Comparative Social Network Analysis of Irish and British Fiction, 1800–1922'.
46 novels by 29 authors. 9,630 unique fictional characters
The Nation, Genre & Gender project was an attempt to examine the role played by 'social networks' in 19th- and early 20th-century Irish and English fiction using literary and data science. By approaching canonical works from a modern perspective, it was hoped to show how relevant they still are in today's social media-driven world.
Vermillion understand that often the best way to engage your audience is to keep the message simple, i.e. explain your story in the least number of words. Their approach on this project was to employ a video short, motion graphics and podcasts to give it a fresh, contemporary feel. See the result here.
