Wilde Trials Web App

The Wilde Trials Web App is a custom-built textbase and text sharing detection program for analyzing international news reports about the three trials of anglo-irish playwright Oscar Wilde. Wilde’s three trials were an international media event in 1895 and were front page news the world over for nearly a two month period, triggering debates about homosexuality, censorship and press standards. A trial version of the Web App, featuring news reports from France and the francophone world, is expected to be released in the near future.
