Literary Geospaces
Howard, Jennifer
Chronicle of Higher Education, v54 n47 pB10 Aug 2008
Digital-humanities centers have sprung up on many campuses, and the field has already launched many careers--but not always smoothly. A panel at the Modern Language Association conference in December focused on a particular subset of work that the organizers described as "literary geospaces." Two of the featured projects--Janelle Jenstad's Map of Early Modern London and Matthew L. Jockers's work on mapping or "georeferencing" the development of Irish-American literature--suggest the potential and some of the uncertainties that await literary critics who take up digital-humanities work. In this article, the author discusses these projects that help convey the significance of texts' locales in various eras.
