Queen’s University Library and the Institute for Collaborative Research in the Humanities were pleased to host a talk by James O’Sullivan of University College Cork School of English yesterday. O’Sullivan’s presentation on ‘The Significance of Boring Words: Stylometic Analyses of James Joyce” provided a disparate audience from the humanities, social sciences and law with fascinating food for thought not just on the immediate subject matter and research questions in literary study, but on wider issues such as the adoption of new tools to answer old questions and the integration of the digital into traditional analytical processes.
