Enlightenment Inflluencers: Networks of Text Reuse in 18th-century France
Glenn Roe, Valentina Fedchenko, Dario Nicolosi
ModERN Project, Sorbonne University, France
The ERC-funded ModERN project is investigating 18th-century authorship practices using data-rich computational techniques to examine the digital archive of the Enlightenment period. This paper explores the use of new large-scale text reuse detection and network analysis to identify intertextual ‘influencers’ in a large heterogeneous collection of 18th-century French texts.
Networks at Scale. A Metadata-Based Approach to Detecting Links Between Fanfiction-Communities
Judith Brottrager, Anastasia Glawion, Katharina Herget, Thomas Weitin
TU Darmstadt, Germany
This contribution demonstrates a metadata-based approach to analyzing user networks of a German-language fanfiction website. Initially divided into clusters based on louvain modularity, the network is further modified to reveal the level of mutual interaction between reader-writers. The links are then categorized by various attributes, including genre and age restriction.
Mapping German Fiction in Translation: Visualizing Translationalism in the German National Library Catalogue
Université de Montréal, Canada
In this paper I present a bibliographic dataset of German fiction in translation consisting of over 35,000 translated titles and 6,000 authors extracted from the German National Library. I further propose a quantitative model for visualizing translationalism in the catalogue by combining social network analysis, descriptive statistics, and geomapping.
