Digital Methodology in the Linguistic Study of Literature: Theory

Linguistics and Literature Forum Session 1

MLA 2021 Annual Convention, Toronto, Jan 7-10

Digital tools have indisputably made many tasks in the linguistic study of literature much easier and faster than used to be. But the turn to digital methods has brought more than ease and efficiency; it has forever changed the field. What are the ways in which digital tools have shaped the linguistic study of literature? And what are the ways literary studies has itself inspired innovation, methods, and the development of new digital tools?

A recent assessment of the state of the humanities (Williams, “The New Humanities,” Chronicle of Higher Education, 14 Nov. 2019) speaks of the rise of “hybrid humanities” -- increasingly collaborative research ventures built around subjects and approaches such as the environment, digital methods, global networks, and public-facing scholarship. And proficiency, if not mastery, in a second discipline after graduate school seems to be an emerging interest (and even need) among researchers according to an upcoming report on the needs of faculty in literature and writing studies conducted by Ithaka S+R and the MLA International Bibliography.

In today's culture, it's almost impossible to avoid "monsters."  Straight from mythology and legend, these fantastic creatures traipse across our television screens and the pages of our books.  Over centuries and across cultures, the inhuman have represented numerous cultural fears and, in more recent times, desires. They are Other. They are Us. This panel will explore the literal monsters--whether they be mythological, extraterrestrial, or man-made--that populate fiction and film, delving into the cultural, psychological and/or theoretical implications.

Speculative fiction covers a broad range of narrative styles and genres.  The cohesive element that pulls works together under the category is that there is some “unrealistic” element, whether it’s magical, supernatural, or a futuristic/technological development: works that fall into the category stray from conventional realism in some way.   For this reason, speculative fiction can be quite broad, including everything from fantasy and magical realism to horror and science fiction—from China Miéville to Margaret Atwood to Philip K. Dick. This panel aims to explore those unrealistic elements and all their varied implications about society, politics, economics, and more.

The Research Group on Manuscript Evidence, in keeping with the MMLA conference’s theme of “Cultures of Collectivity,” is sponsoring panels on collecting and manuscripts, broadly conceived. Possible foci include, strictly by way of example: specific archives, collections, or even gatherings of texts in particular manuscripts; reading communities or scribal centers; book markets; and the collections of material resources involved in manuscript production. We invite all approaches—including hermeneutical, textual, art historical, codicological, and paleographical—across all time periods.
