Dr Katherine Bode announced as a conference keynote speaker

Posted on: 17 October 2018

IPEd is pleased to welcome Dr Katherine Bode as our second confirmed keynote speaker.

Katherine is Associate Professor of Literary and Textual Studies at the Australian National University and an Australian Research Council Future Fellow (2018 to 2022).

Her research focuses on using large-scale datasets and digital methods to explore existing and new perspectives on the transnational histories of Australian literature and literature in Australia. She has published extensively on digital literary history and digital humanities, including as author or editor of Resourceful Reading: The New Empiricism, eResearch and Australian Literary Culture (2009), Reading by Numbers: Recalibrating the Literary Field (2012), Advancing Digital Humanities: Research, Methods, Theory (2014) and A World of Fiction: Digital Collections and the Future of Literary History (2018).

With reference to her groundbreaking national database project, entitled To be continued: The Australian Newspaper Fiction Database, Katherine will explore some ways in which the principles of editing might be applied to the relationships between archives and editions, between individual literary works and the other works that circulated alongside them in the past, and between the readers and editors who together explore digitised collections in the present. This inquiry proposes new possibilities for editing beyond the page, beyond the book and beyond the literary work.
