Digital Dostoevsky

Prof. Kate Holland and her Digital Dostoevsky research team will be presenting at the Critical Digital Humanities International Conference at U of T on October 1.

The roundtable is entitled “Digital Dostoevsky, or the Challenges of Doing Multilingual DH.”

Digital Dostoevsky is a computational text analysis project on a corpus of 5 novels and two novellas by Fyodor Dostoevsky. It is a digital humanities project which emerges out of our long-standing interest in traditional philological analysis.

We are excited by how digital approaches such as TEI encoding, machine reading, and natural language processing can help to answer questions about the deep structure of Dostoevsky’s novels, questions about speech, character, space, temporality, affect, and fictionality, among other areas.

The project is hosted at the University of Toronto and supported by an Insight Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

Prof. Holland’s research team includes her co-PI, Dr. Katherine Bowers from UBC, three Slavic Department Graduate Student RAs, Braxton Boyer, Elena Vasileva and Elijah Sciborowski, and four U of T undergrad RAs: Dmytro Ishchenko, Nadia Ivanovna, Veronika Sizova, and Eden Zorne.
