Laboratory of Literary Genres and Literary History
Description - Research Activities
The lab was established in 2016 to support the research and teaching of the Philology Department in the subjects of literary genres and literary history. The lab promotes cooperative work, so it usually focuses on larger scale research, using quantitative methods and digital technologies. However, it welcomes collaboration on other types of research as well, as long as they fall within its wider scope. Graduate students work voluntarily in the lab, whenever possible with a stipend, whereas we also welcome Drs. and PhD candidates who wish to conduct their research with the lab. The lab is hosted in CRCUC.
