Meeting Description: 

Abstract: The traditional lit review tends to focus on a selection of canonical authors and works, along with a sampling of lesser known (often more recent) references. But “the literature” shares with literature a common feature, namely a great unread. Thanks to interfaces such as JSTOR’s “Data for research,” we can now apply some of the methods that scholars have adapted for the distant reading of literary texts to secondary sources. In this presentation, Professor Edelstein takes the scholarship on the Enlightenment as a case-study for datamining the lit review.
