The New Wave: Charting Skills Gap in Computational Literary Studies Training

Activity: Talk or presentationAcademic


We have explored gaps in teaching of research skills for computational literary studies to inform the CLS INFRA project’s approach to training schools and chart the territory to gain broader insight into current CLS teaching practices. To understand supply we have manually annotated a sample of European university courses in Digital Humanities and summer school workshops. To index demand we set up an online survey to ask the community to evaluate a set of predetermined ‘skills’ based on its perceived future prospects in the field and teaching (1-5 scale response, 118 participants). The survey also offered a chance to observe the demographic structure of the CLS community. In this webinar, we will discuss the preliminary results of this study.
