The Text and Data Analytics Working Group received funding in 2017 to organise an expert workshop on “Distant Reading in Literary Texts”. The aim of this initiative was to bring together experts to discuss issues of literary text analysis and promote the Working Group as a framework for international exchange and collaboration among established experts in the field.
The workshop, which was organised in collaboration with the DARIAH-DE Cluster “Quantitative Text Analysis”, was held on 23-24 November 2017 at the Department of Literary Computing at the University of Würzburg. It brought together a number of international experts on computational analysis of literary text to present their latest research projects and discuss current developments of computational methodology in public.
Speakers at the workshop were:
- Fotis Jannidis, University of Würzburg
