Dr Michael Falk’s article featured in Oxford Research Encyclopaedia in Literature

Lecturer in Eighteenth-Century Studies, Dr Michael Falk, has recently published an article, Digital Humanities, which has been featured in the Oxford Research Encyclopaedia in Literature as a featured article, freely available to the public.

The ORE in Literature is a major new encyclopaedia covering all aspects of literary study. The article describes how Digital Humanities has transformed literary theory, by posing new questions about the nature of language, textuality and meaning.

Digital Humanities explores, ‘the history of humanities computing and digital humanities, its evolution as a discipline, including its institutional development and outstanding challenges it faces.’ The article also discusses digital techniques including stylometry, topic modeling, literary mapping, historical bibliometrics, corpus linguistic techniques, and sequence alignment as well as their contribution to humanities.
