    Abstract

    What effect is the move to digital-first texts having upon various types of literature and our political understanding of such works? When scholars have thought, for decades, about the way in which literary works espouse political worldviews, what might it mean that, for the first time in human history, we have a broad democratic means of disseminating work? In this inaugural lecture, Professor Martin Paul Eve will discuss topics from the emergent digital-material cultures of circulation, rivalry, and economics in scholarly publishing, through explorations of the ways in which socio-philosophical paradigms of critique can be used to think about literary and critical texts, to the role of repetitious empiricism in literary research that uses brute computational force. The result will be an overview of the overlapping Venn-like mappings of contemporary literatures, interpretation, and computation.
