Call For Papers

[Deadline Extended: 31st of January]

International Conference: Digital Literary Studies
Date: May 14-15, 2015
Location: School of Arts and Humanities, University of Coimbra

'Digital Literary Studies' is an international conference exploring methods, tools, objects and digital practices in the field of literary studies. The digitization of artifacts and literary practices, the adoption of computational methods for aggregating, editing and analyzing texts as well as the development of collaborative forms of research and teaching through networking and communication platforms are three dimensions of the ongoing relocation of literature and literary studies in the digital medium. The aim of this two-day conference is to contribute to the mapping of material practices and interpretative processes of literary studies in a changing media ecology.

We invite researchers to submit papers and posters on projects concerned with the digital reinvention of literary studies. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
- computational literary analysis (macro analysis, data mining, distant reading, topic modelling; visualization, corpora);
- digital philology (electronic editions and archives, textual databases);
- computational literary creation (automatic generation of text, textual instruments, kinetic texts, locative narrative, etc.);
- the teaching of literature in a digital context;
- peer review and open access (new practices of collaboration, dissemination, transfer and validation of knowledge production).

The ‘Digital Literary Studies’ conference will take place at the School of Arts and Humanities, University of Coimbra on May 14-15, 2015. Paper and poster proposals should be submitted by January 31, 2015 through EasyChair ( We also welcome panel proposals (three presenters per panel). All paper proposals must be between 1500 and 2000 words (including references). Authors should provide name, contact details, and institutional affiliation, as well as title, abstract, and keywords for their paper. Authors will be notified of the peer review results by February 15, 2015. Proposals can use any of the following languages: Portuguese, English, Spanish, French, and Italian. Selected articles resulting from the conference papers will be published in a special issue of the journal MATLIT (
