Close Reading + Digital Humanities: A Dialogue
April 20, 2pm-5pm
Birkbeck, University of London
Keynes Library, 43 Gordon Square

Digital practices in literary studies have been at the forefront of recent debates about what it means to 'read' at scale. Meanwhile, conventional literary studies has followed the modernist paradigm of 'close reading', insisting on close textual attention. This afternoon brings together scholars of both approaches to investigate how one can inform the other, chart common goals and navigate potential tensions and anxieties. Each speaker will present for 25 minutes with Q+A, followed by a panel discussion.
