Background & goal

This panel is a part of the CLARIN Café series, as well as the first of the planned events dedicated to an overview of the application of digital tools in SSH disciplines.

The goal of the meeting is to introduce digital methods to literary scholars on the example of the tools provided by CLARIN. We plan to showcase some successful research projects and sketch the potential of digital approaches to literary studies. The desired outcome for the audience would be to sparkle their engagement with digital tools, methodologies and projects relevant to their interests, as well as to draw their attention to CLARIN national nodes.


The panelists represent three projects relevant to the different aspects of literary research: 

  1. corpus creation on the example of KORP : Olga Gerassimenko (Center of Estonian Language Resources) and Marin Laak (Estonian Literary Museum). 
  2. text annotation and preparation of a digital edition of ArchilochusBeatrice Nava (University of Bologna),
  3. textual analysis and stylometry with WebSty: Joanna Byszuk (Institute of Polish Language of the Polish Academy of Sciences).


This CLARIN Café will consists of two parts:

Part 1: Examples

  • Introduction from the moderator
  • Panelists showcase their work in digital literary studies, using CLARIN tools. 

Part 2:  Discussion

  • App. 20 mins for discussion between the panelists on the application of digital methods in literary studies, followed by Q&A with the audience.

Target audience

The target audience of this CLARIN Café are researchers who are willing to incorporate new methods into their disciplinary workflows but need an entry point.
