New Work, New Reading

Objective

The research project New Work, New Reading interrogates the relationship between new reading practices and labor. By employing computational methods to analyze reading behavior, engagement, consumption patterns and genre developments, the project investigates reading in the context of our rapidly changing workday. The project is a case study of the Scandinavian digital book market, has established partnerships with three major institutions in the Scandinavian digital literary industry and takes place at a leading Digital Humanities center in Sweden. The project studies datasets which have previously been unavailable to Danish literary scholars: literary streaming data. Drawing on my expertise in literary labor studies, I will compare reading data, surveys of contemporary readers and influential theories about the new work regime. All in all, the project contributes to studies of contemporary reading, studies of digital book publishing and computational methods in literary studies.
