Global and Digital Literary Studies Lab

Established in 2019, the Global and Digital Literary Studies Lab explores synergic approaches to literary and translation studies from a global perspective, combining innovative digital analytical and visualisation methods on the one side and existing sociological, text-oriented and oral-historical method of literary and translation enquiry.

The lab endeavours to develop digital tools for the analysis and visualisation of large-scale data on global literary exchange, especially focusing on the translation and international reception of Czech literature as a typical smaller European literature.

Moreover, we explore theories and methods investigating multifaceted global literary circulation as well as the variegated individual life trajectories of authors, translators, publishers as well as the trajectories of individual works both in terms of publication, translation and reception.

Our key research objectives include systematic charting the global dissemination of Czech literature by aggregating and processing bibliographical data on books and magazines as well as analysing biographical data on translators, authors and publishers of translated literature.

Currently, we are focusing on a Czech Science Foundation-funded project Global Trajectories of Czech Literature since 1945.
