Lincoln Logarithms: Finding Meaning in Sermons uses digital tools to analyze 57 sermons delivered after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. We wondered if using digital tools to analyze a digitized collection elegiac sermons might uncover patterns or new insights about his memorialization, and this project is an exploration of what such tools can and cannot show us.
Lincoln Logarithms is a partnership between DiSC and the Lewis H. Beck Center for Electronic Collections, which had previously digitized the sermons that are in the Pitts Theology Library's collections. The work on the project was carried out by the DiSC graduate fellows—Sarita Alami, Moya Bailey, and Katie Rawson—and by the Beck Center's Sara Palmer. Systems support was provided by Jay Varner.
