What is this Thinglink…thing?
ThingLink is an online image and video annotation tool. Using ThingLink you can add annotations directly to images and videos. For example: I analyzed the poster for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Instead of flipping back and forth between my analysis and the picture you can read specific annotations directly connected to the element being analyzed.

How: In order to classify texts to one another, it is necessary to have a large amount of texts available to analyze; therefore, our professor, Dr. Jaime Jordan, compiled a corpus of different texts ranging from the Victorian era to the modern era for our class to use. Then, using R and R Studio, we tidied the data up and in the end were able to create the classifications that you see in the examples above.
