Data and Literary Studies: A Research Lab

This seminar will look at the data of literary study—from colonial lending library records to course syllabi and poems—and what they can tell us about how cultural works are produced, consumed, consecrated, and distributed. We’ll learn advanced techniques in computer-assisted reading and situate them within a longer genealogy that includes book history, critical archival studies, and Marxist literary theory.
