“Digital Humanities and Its Application in the Study of Literature and Culture” examines the relationship between comparative literary and cultural studies, systems theory and model building, and recent work in digital humanities. Areas of specific application include the topology of German literature, modernist poetics in China, Japan, and the United States, and the geography of nineteenth-century fiction, as well as a range of associated computational methods. Wilkens argues that computational work represents a unique opportunity for comparatists interested in large-scale cultural analysis and that digital humanities would benefit from increased participation by comparatists.
