Dr. J. Berenike Herrman, "Towards a conceptualization of 'style' in digital text studies"

Meeting of the GCDH Digital Text Analysis Working Group, Heyne Haus Seminarraum 1

Abstract:

My talk will outline the ways in which the concept of “style” has been addressed in German studies in the last fifty years or so, linking it to the working notion(s) of style in the current international paradigms of stylometry and corpus stylistics. The objective is to draw a map of the field of what could be called stylistics and style studies in German studies, preparing a theoretically sound conceptualization of “style” for application to state-of-the-art digital text analysis.
