The workshop and lectures on Sentiment Analysis in Literary Studies are organized in the context of the “Distant Spectators. Distant Reading for Periodicals of the Enlightenment” project which aims to develop and disseminate a tool chain for sentiment analysis that is applicable to multilingual text corpora of the 18th century. The event is funded by CLARIAH-AT and co-organized by the Centre for Information Modelling – Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and the Institute for Romance Studies at the University of Graz, as well as the Institute for Interactive Systems and Data Science at the Graz University of Technology and the Know-Center GmbH Graz.
