Quantifizieren in der Interpretationspraxis der Digital Humanities

Schruhl, Friederike


Quantitative methods experience an upswing in literary studies due to the possibilities of digitalization and the ongoing innovations and refinements in digital humanities. The following article deals with these quantitative approaches to text handling from a praxeological perspective. It aims at locating quantitative research within the interpretative praxis of digital humanities. By means of selected papers from leading digital humanities journals it systematically examines constituent sub-practices of quantifying such as counting, calculating and visualizing, as well as their prerequisites and epistemic content. Thereby it makes a substantial contribution to the current debate between digital humanities and classical literary scholarship.
