Zoom Presentation


The computational analysis of literature and other cultural media has recently blossomed within the interdisciplinary sub-field of “cultural analytics”, a community within the larger tent of digital humanities. The ability to track patterns across cultural production at a larger scale than previously feasible holds a great deal of promise as an avenue of research, but it depends on language-specific technical and data infrastructure. This talk will explore the state of this infrastructure for scholars of Francophone literatures and cultures, compared to what’s available for scholars of the Anglophone world. As “data” and “computation” make larger inroads in the humanities, how can librarians apply their linguistic and cultural expertise to the table in developing some of the necessary resources for supporting this new kind of scholarship? This talk will suggest opportunities for collaboration and advocacy that can make a difference for the future of Francophone cultural analytics.
