Research on Modern Japanese Literature Using Full-Text Data
Dr. Yoshitaka Hibi (Nagoya University)

Recently, the availability and use of Japanese full-text data has been increasing with remarkable speed. What approaches can the study of modern Japanese literature take in the face of the emergence of these new digital archives? This lecture will focus on the National Diet Library Digital Collections and its Next Digital Library, referring to Aozora Bunko and other digital library services as needed to show examples of their practices. Major topics will include an exploration of historical changes in concepts and keywords as well as the use of large-scale full-text data to discover new subgenres and to conduct a reception analysis.
