I’m Angus Grieve-Smith, a linguist and computer programmer. I currently work as a Web Developer for the New School, a hundred-year-old university in New York City, where I’ve written the PHP and React mobile apps that let students know how much money they have to spend in their meal plans, where to find the right printer, and what hours the computer labs are open.
My current big linguistics project is the Digital Parisian Stage, a representative corpus of nineteenth century theater available for free on GitHub. My book on this corpus Building a Representative Theater Corpus: A Broader View of Nineteenth-Century French (2019) is available from Palgrave. In 2018 I created the Twitter bot @spectacles_xix, which tweets about plays that premièred on the Parisian stage on this day two hundred years ago.
