Franco Moretti vs Michel Charles ou les paradoxes de la distance

Je m’intéresserai au procédé baptisé ’opérationnalisation’ que Franco Moretti décrit dans sa contribution à La Littérature au laboratoire (trad. fr. Ithaque Editions, 2016). Les ordinateurs tournent à plein régime. Graphes, cartes et arbres sont soigneusement produits. On est en pleine distant reading. Rien à voir, dira-t-on, avec ce qui occupe un Michel Charles, champion de la microlecture ‘à la française’, close reader compulsif et fier de l’être. Et pourtant, et comme on va voir, il s’agit là peut-être d’un faux antagonisme. Intéressons-nous, pour parler comme Proust, au ‘côté Moretti’ de Michel Charles, démarche qui revient à apercevoir symétriquement un ‘côté Michel Charles’ chez Franco Moretti. Bref, nous allons, au pays des humanités numériques, mettre les choses sens dessus dessous, pour une meilleure hygiène intellectuelle.

Gender and the Riddle of Literary Quality

We as readers like to think that we don’t have bias, that we can judge books quite objectively. However, when The Riddle of Literary Quality project did a large survey in the world of people who read Dutch-language books, some subtle (and less subtle) gender biases came to light. In this talk, Koolen explains what the team found and the dozen ways she tried to tease out the cause of this bias.

Literature as a Commodity - Distant Reading Pulp Fiction

There is a field of popular fiction which doesn't attract the attention of literary scholars very often: dime novels, sometimes also called pulp fiction because of the bad quality of the paper. Millions of them are printed every year but they don't appear in any bestseller list, because they don't belong to the usual system of literary communication. Research on dime novels perceived them quite long as part of the cheap escapist entertainment industry, targeting especially the lower classes, while in recent years the complexity of some of the series and of the communication of fans about their dime novels has been highlighted in contrast. The talk will look at 14.000 dime novels published in recent years and explore genres, topics and the complexity of the texts in an attempt to reevaluate some of these research positions.

“James Joyce's Ulysses into the Digital Age: Forty Years of Steering an Edition through Turbulences of Scholarship and Reception”

Work over seven years with a team of dedicated collaborators produced the three-volume Critical and Synoptic Edition published in 1984. It was received with enthusiasm, yet soon also severely attacked. Meanwhile, its reading text has become the standard Ulysses reference text. Its display of the growth of the text, by contrast, is still to be searched in-depth for its critical potential. The medium to explore that potential is the digital medium. Today’s updating of our digital archive of the 1984 edition is enabling a generation renewal of the Critical and Synoptic Edition of 1984 in book form into a dynamic online Digital Critical and Synoptic Edition in-the-making for James Joyce’s Ulysses.

Towards a Resarch Agenda for Data-driven Approches to Literary Periods

This lecture will first scrutinize recent work in data-driven, quantitative approaches to periodization in literary history for answers to the above-mentioned questions, to then build on this assessment and describe some of the key practical as well as methodological challenges the field is currently facing. Ultimately, what will emerge from this double perspective is a research agenda for data-driven, quantitative approaches to literary periodization, a field of study in which most of the work remains to be done.
