[Project] Topological analysis of narratives
I am a soon to be computational narratology PhD student. I decided to take it upon myself to try to increase public awareness of narratology (Its a cool field, more people should know about it!)
As such, I decided to start a blog series about formally analyzing plot holes and showing how these plot holes become apparent in the topological features of an embedded narrative. This directly correlates with my PhD thesis (creating a DNN to automatically detect plot holes in narratives, and suggest ways to fix them) so I thought I’d be a prime candidate for writing a blog about it!
The first entry is more NLP oriented, but I plan to dig into solely computational narratology in the coming entries. I’ll be posting every few months, and each post will be a 5 – 10min light read (They are written for non-experts). This is the first time I have written a blog post, and all things considered I think it came out pretty good!
