Computational Literary Genre Stylistics
- 1. University of Würzburg
The project in a nutshell: This project will investigate the relation between literary genres (generic facets) and style (stylistic attributes). Analyses are based on large collections of literary texts and use or develop state-of-the-art methods in computational stylistics and text analysis. This will enable the project to combine attention to minute stylistic details with the investigation of large trends and patterns in literary history.
What does the project aim to accomplish? The project brings together scholars from Romance Philology and Computer Scientists, building a common ground in Computational Philology. It aims to change the way we think about the concepts of genre and style as well as about the relation between literary interpretation and computation. In particular, the project aims to strengthen the engagement with digital methods in Romance Philology.
