PhD Programme

Corina KoolenPhD candidate with The Riddle of Literary Quality (KNAW) 2012-2018

'The reason that a Julian Barnes' novel is seen as more literary than 'Fifty Shades of Grey', can be objectified by computationally analyzing the text of those novels. That is our hypothesis. From the word-level to higher-end structures, we explore multiple layers of the texts.'
