Opening Keynote:

Prof. dr. Marco van Leeuwen

Comparative interdisciplinary research in History and Sociology

I will talk about the role of theory, methods, data and collaboration in History – and by extension the Human Sciences – and in the Social Sciences – in particular Sociology. These rather abstract notions are illustrated with examples from my past ERC-project Towards Open Societies, using big register datasets in several European countries to study social mobility and social homogamy over the past two centuries.  I will also talk about the limitations of that project and how other more qualitative, textual sources may help to overcome these.

Closing Keynote:

Prof. Michaela Mahlberg, PhD

Fiction – the key to bringing digital humanities and corpus linguistics closer together  

In today’s digital age, many areas of the humanities have seen a digital turn and there is plenty of innovation in methods and tools. Still, there are also parallel developments across different fields, and even the danger of reinventing the wheel. The study of fiction is a case in point. In digital humanities, literary texts have received much attention. With a specific focus on language, literary texts have also been studied in corpus linguistics. While there is productive overlap between digital humanities and corpus linguistics research, there is still huge potential for more collaboration and more exchange of ideas. At times, it seems divisions between literary studies and linguistics have been carried over to separate approaches in digital humanities and corpus linguistics. I want to suggest that the way we approach fiction is the key to more collaborative thinking across different fields and disciplines. I focus on the example of corpus linguistics, but some of the points I will make do extend to other areas of humanities. Crucially, fiction is never just fiction. Fiction and non-fiction can be described along a continuum. We use fundamentally the same language to create fictional worlds and to talk about what we perceive as the ‘real world’. In this talk, I will look at how corpus approaches, as linguistic approaches, aim to account for properties of literary texts. On the other hand, I will consider how the study of literature and literary history can be linked up with questions in corpus-assisted discourse studies. Ultimately, collaborative approaches will not only lead to better methods and tools, but also to a better understanding of the fuzzy boundaries between fiction and the real world.
