Distant Reading for European Literary History: Closing Conference
The COST Action Distant Reading for European Literary History is delighted
to announce that its closing conference takes place on April 21-22, 2022
in an online-only format.
The conference is co-organized as a common event of the Distant Reading
and the Computational Literary Studies Infrastructure (CLS INFRA)
projects. The local organizer is the Jagiellonian University in Kraków,
Participants from both projects will be presenting papers on a wide range
of topics in the field of distant reading and computational methods
applied to literary texts. Sessions address topics such as corpus design,
text encoding and annotation, analytical perspectives, theoretical
concerns as well as infrastructure and training requirements.
We are proud to welcome two keynote speakers: Prof. Dr. Karina van
Dalen-Oskam (University of Amsterdam and The Huygens Institute for the
History of the Netherlands, Netherlands) and Dr. Oleg Sobchuk (Max Planck
Institute for the Science of Human History, Jena, Germany).
The full conference programme is available here:
The COST Action Distant Reading for European Literary History has brought
together scholars from more than 30 countries interested in analyzing
large bodies of literary works using computational, quantitative text
analysis. Together they have been building the multilingual European
Literary Text Collection (ELTeC) currently containing more than 1900
novels in 17 different languages, with full text encoded in XML-TEI. The
scholars involved in the project have also been developing innovative
methods of text analysis adapted to Europe’s multilingual literary
traditions. They have discovered cross-national, large-scale patterns and
evolutions across European literary traditions and they have contributed
to the creation of a broader, more inclusive and better-grounded account
of European literary history and cultural identity. For more information,
Computational Literary Studies Infrastructure (CLS INFRA), funded as a
Starting Community in Horizon 2020, is a four-year partnership aiming to
build a shared resource of high-quality data, tools and knowledge needed
for literary studies using artificial intelligence and other computational
methods. The overall aim of CLS INFRA is to open up the best data mining
resources Europe has to offer in the growing field of Computational
Literary Studies, which enables a big-data approach to the study of
culture. A further aim of the project is to open up Computational Literary
Studies to more researchers and enable investigation into Europe’s
multi-lingual and interconnected literary heritage and cultural diversity.
Partners in the 13 institutions will bring together existing resources as
well as develop new tools, services and literary collections. For more
