Mark Algee-Hewitt’s work combines critical and quantitative approaches to the analysis of literature. He is particularly interested in the literature and aesthetic philosophy of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and he has used computational methods to explore the history of aesthetic concepts across this period. As director of the Stanford Literary Lab, he has led projects on the literature of suspense, the history of racialized language in American literature, and an analysis of the reports of the OECD’s anti-bribery convention.
