Welcome to MiMoTextBase

Imagine you wanted a ranking of the most common themes in all epistolary novels in French Enlightenment novels, an overview of authors covering “sentimentalism” or a map of all narrative places. The MiMoText knowledge graph combines the linked open data paradigm with the infrastructure of a wikibase and text mining methods of data-based literary history. Using the query language SPARQL, you can query this large and growing knowledge graph about the French Enlightenment novel.
