[Quantitative Methods in Literary Studies and the Humanities: Systematic and Historical Perspectives]
Ed. by Bernhart, Toni / Willand, Marcus / Richter, Sandra / Albrecht, Andrea
Aims and Scope
Starting from the early 19th century, quantitative methods have been applied to describe, analyze, and interpret texts in literary studies and the humanities. With the emergence of the "digital humanities," such approaches have gained in importance. The volume aims to historically contextualize and examine quantifying procedures in relation to theory and to assess the value of quantitative data in the humanities.
