|title: "Topic Modeling the Colonial Newspaper Database"|
|author: "Shawn Graham"|

|In [Module 3](https://github.com/hist3907b-winter2015/module3-wranglingdata), we used TEI to mark up primary documents. Melodee Beals has been using TEI to markup newspaper articles, creating the [Colonial Newspapers Database](https://github.com/mhbeals/Colonial-Newspaper-Database) (which she shared on github). We then used Github Pages and an XLST stylesheet to convert that database into a table of comma-separated values <https://raw.githubusercontent.com/shawngraham/exercise/gh-pages/CND.csv>. We are now going to topic model the text of those newspaper articles, to see what patterns of discourse may lie within.|
