We are very pleased to announce a CLiC guest post on the Blog of the Digital Literary Stylistics Special Interest Group (also see the Twitter hashtag #SIG_DLS), which is curated by J. Berenike Herrmann (@Jberenike on Twitter) at the University of Basel’s Digital Humanities Lab.
This special interest group
brings together researchers from different perspectives to discuss theoretical, methodological and technical issues of doing digital style analysis, share resources, and organize events and initiatives. The SIG-DLS is a platform fostering the study of style in any type of discourse, register, and genre. Although the central focus is on aspects of literary discourse, this research also includes the study of non-literary texts. (https://dls.hypotheses.org/)
The accompanying SIG_DLS (“Doing Digital Literary Stylistics) Blog features posts on digital literary stylistics resources and events, so it is well worth a visit!
Our post, “The CLiC web app – a corpus tool for studying literary texts”, introduces CLiC with a little case study of body parts and characterisation in Dickens’s novels using the KWICGrouper. The post is accompanied by a poster (shown in small on the right here). We’re also making the PDF version of the poster available here – but for the full context you should still head over to the #SIG_DLS Blog!
