Network analytic approaches to the production and propagation of literary and artistic value
Daniel Allington, The Open University
Daniel Allington, Centre for Language and Communication, Faculty of Education and Language Studies, The Open University, will present the first seminar in this year’s Centre for e-Research Seminar Series, King’s College London, on 1 October 2013 at 6.15pm.
Daniel will be discussing his approach to study of the production and propagation of literary and artistic value, which emerges from Bourdieu’s sociology but employs social network analysis: two paradigms that are often assumed to be in opposition. Daniel will illustrate his methodological and theoretical reflections with details from his empirical research on interactive fiction and other ongoing projects where he examines the relationships between cultural producers (such as early 20th century authors, contemporary visual artists and electronic musicians).
The seminar is open to all and free to attend.
