Nevertheless, digital humanities scholarship and work with digital methods continues to advance, even if there is only limited exchange between the fields with their various uses of the computer.
This talk will offer a glimpse into the work of one of the most renowned and active practitioners of cultural analytics. Andrew Piper has published many highly regarded contributions to the question of the materiality of literature, the evolution of literary genres, and digital methods in literary studies since his study of imaginaries of the literary in the medium of the book (Dreaming in Books, 2009). The tension between exemplary analyses and work with large corpora of digitized sources is always at the center. How can these two ways of working be brought into better contact with each other, what chances do they have to learn from each other? At this lecture evening, Andrew Piper will present an excerpt from his current projects and put it up for discussion.
