Closing conference

The COST Action Distant Reading for European Literary History is delighted to announce that its closing conference takes place on April 21-22, 2022 in an online-only format. 

The conference is co-organized as a common event of the Distant Reading and the Computational Literary Studies Infrastructure (CLS INFRA) projects. The local organizer is the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland. 

Participants from both projects will be presenting papers on a wide range of topics in the field of distant reading and computational methods applied to literary texts. Sessions address topics such as corpus design, text encoding and annotation, analytical perspectives, theoretical concerns as well as infrastructure and training requirements. 

We are proud to welcome two keynote speakers: Prof. Dr. Karina van Dalen-Oskam (University of Amsterdam and The Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands, Netherlands) and Dr. Oleg Sobchuk (Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History, Jena, Germany).
