The project The Riddle of Literary Quality

The PhD we are looking for will be working on the research into and the

digital/computational humanities. Some of the qualifications needed for
applicants are a Master in Literary Studies or a closely related field, and
affinity with (computational) linguistics and empirical research, knowledge
of Dutch, English, and possibly also of Frisian, and affinity with
information technology and willing to learn basic programming skills. The
