Conference Announcement and Call for papers
“Digital Practices. Reading, Writing and Evaluation on the Web.”
The Basel/Zurich research cluster of SNSF “Digital Lives” projects is organizing a three-day conference on “Digital Practices. Reading, writing and evaluation on the web” at the University of Basel, Switzerland. The conference will take place from June 3rd to June 5th 2020.
In line with our own research (see below), our conference aims to examine digital discourses from the perspectives of Digital Humanities, Literary Studies, and Digital/Computational/Corpus Linguistics. We will explore how adults and adolescents read online and offline, how they write about their reading experiences individually and collaboratively, how lay people in particular appraise, assess and evaluate online, and how we as digital scholars approach, analyze and interpret the data and practices we collect for our research.
