이재연(UNIST) 선생님의 신간 <Formation of Periodical Authorship in 1920s Korea>을 소개합니다.
이 책의 주제는 근대 문학의 형성기에 문단에 등단한 한국 작가들이 정기간행물을 매개로 한 주체임을 멀리서/가까이 읽기를 통해 밝히는 것입니다. 아래는 시카고 대학 Hoyt Long 교수님의 추천사입니다.
“This book represents a critical advance in the application of computational techniques to the study of non-English literatures. It is one of the first examples we have in English of how such techniques can potentially enhance our understanding of modern Korean literature. Lee offers a compelling model for how to adapt these techniques to the particularities of written Korean, but also for how to think with these techniques in conjunction with sociological, book historical, and hermeneutic approaches. As such, it stands as a major contribution to the fields of modern Korean literature and digital humanities and is sure to inspire future scholars who seek to work at the intersection of these fields.”
–Hoyt Long, Professor of Japanese Literature, University of Chicago
