Building on a quantitative survey that charts the presence of foreign cultures in the Edinburgh Review and Quarterly Review, this essay pursues a closer understanding of the ways in which British Romantic review periodicals engaged in intercultural mediation. After a brief introduction of the project, the essay zooms in on some of the methodological issues related to the construction and analysis of the database. As it is the first time that such quantitative research is being undertaken, particular attention is given to the difficult balance between distant reading of metadata and close readings of specific review articles, the selection of a representative corpus, and the position of the database within existing research.
