Scalable Reading. Paul Heyse’s Deutscher Novellenschatz between individual text and macroanalysis

The first conference of the research initiative “Digital Humanities Center” will take place in the Seeburg on Lake Constance June 4 – 6, 2015.


The basic assumption of the conference is that the study of medium-sized corpora, which is often underestimated in digital humanities, enables us to formulate valuable, research-based answers to the basic methodological question about the relationship between qualitative and quantitative research. “Scalable Reading” stands for an integrative concept that overcomes the much-debated juxtaposition of close and distant reading and puts together conclusions derived from both interpretative reading and computer-based analysis.
