Tweets of a Native Son: James Baldwin, #BlackLivesMatter, and Networks of Textual Recirculation

Melanie Walsh

Washington University in St. Louis, United States of America

This talk will share work-in-progress from my project Tweets of a Native Son, which brings large-scale social media data and computational methods to bear on James Baldwin’s 21st-century remediation, recirculation, and reimagination. This talk will discuss the methods and progress made in the project thus far, argue that social media analysis might usefully contribute to a growing body of computationally-assisted scholarship focused on readership, reception, and textual circulation, and finally gesture to how such an approach might change our understanding of how texts are shared between communities of people, namely through its emphasis on networks.
