VAL Symposium 2021 (12/11/2021): Presentation “Five stars – it was amazing”

On the 12th of November 2021, I participated in the VAL Symposium. There, I gave a presentation comparing the literary criticism of Layperson critics, in the form of Goodreads reviews, and evaluative criteria they employed in the context of three literary prizes that allow different levels of audience participation, namely the Gouden (Boeken)Uil/Fintro Literatuurprijs, the Ingeborg-Bachmann-Preis and the Not the Booker Prize. The title of this presentation was: “’Five stars – it was amazing’: Towards an Automated Comparative Analysis of Layman and Professional Literary Reviewing”.
