We present first results of the project “Emotions in Drama” in which we explore the annotation of emotions and the application of computational emotion analysis, predominantly deep learning-based methods, in the context of historical German plays of the time around 1800. We performed a pilot annotation study with five plays generating over 6,500 annotations for up to 13 sub-emotions structured in a hierarchical scheme.

Topic modeling is a popular method in computational literary studies (CLS). For its evaluation, topic coherence measures have been proposed that quantify the semantic coherence of topic words by analyzing their co-occurrences in a larger reference corpus. As a consequence, they can not produce meaningful results for words that do not appear in the reference corpus.
Wie sich die Bilder ähneln. Vom Zufallsfund zur systematischen Forschung im Bereich der automatisierten Bildähnlichkeitssuche

The perception of the transmission of ideas and knowledge through texts is well-known to us. But the image also has a »life of its own« in relation to the text that accompanies and explains it. This has hardly been taken into notice so far. The paper takes up this problem using the example of historical children's and youth literature and focuses here in particular on the genre of books teaching knowledge. In this way, the contexts of origin of the book illustrations will be shown and their references reconstructed. In consequence, the didactic selection of the image content, which was considered relevant for the education of the child in the 18th and 19th century, can be better understood. The way to a solution is interdisciplinary and combines the library perspective in digitizing and providing the image sources, two heterogeneous information science methods for similarity search and the subject-specific expertise in children's book research. We will compare and critically reflect on the suitability and scope of the methods.
Disruptionen der Literaturwissenschaft am Beispiel der DVjs. Methodische Validierung durch Simulation und Anwendung
von Leonard Konle, Fotis Jannidis, Steffen Martus
This article deals with the use of distance measures to detect disruptive phases in literary studies using the Journal DVjs. In this context, the impossibility of methodological validation by annotated data is problematized and an alternative way of evaluation by simulation is proposed. Further, we analyse the internal structure of the DVjs through topic modeling and derive consequences for distance measurement and simulations.
