The Future of literary history: Mass-digitized colletions, literary data, and American fiction in the Antipodes

A lecture by Katherine Bode, 4:00 - 5:30pm in Brooks Hall Commons. Followed by a DH@UVA Mixer, 5:30 - 7:00.

Katherine Bode is Associate Professor of Literary and Textual Studies in the School of Literature, Languages, and Linguistics at the Australian National University in Canberra. Her research considers new insights into past literary cultures, as well as new practices for present and future literary history that mass-digitized collections enable. In her lecture, she will focus on the approaches to data required of literary history in the digital age, as well as the new collaborations and publics for literary history that data-rich research makes possible. She has published extensively in literary studies, digital humanities, and book history, and her latest monograph, A World of Fiction: Digital Collections and the Future of Literary History, is forthcoming with University of Michigan Press in July 2018.
