With the advent of digital humanities over the course of the last decades, discussions about the theoretical and methodological foundations of literary studies have been reinvigorated. However, discussions have all too often centered on the perceived opposition between digital literary studies and traditional literary scholarship, not on their fruitful theoretical and methodological interchange.
As the conference title suggests, the overall theme of the conference is to address the synergies between digital humanities and traditional literary scholarship. Rather than reproducing the perceived methodological bifurcation between digital humanists and literary scholars, the aim of the conference is to stimulate discussion and reflection across the methodological divide. Thus, speakers will reflect on how traditional literary scholarship may benefit digital humanities and vice versa.
