New article in Canadian Literature

My newest article, “Paraphrasing the Paraphrase OR what I Learned from reading every issue of Canadian Literature / Littérature canadienne and Studies in Canadian Literature / Études en littérature canadienne” has been published in the most recent issue of Canadian Literature. In the article I return to Frank Davey’s critique of the criticism of paraphrase and suggest that digital forms of literary interpretation may suggest a new paradigm that revives paraphrase as a valuable critical tool. To make my case I engage in a differential reading of Canadian Literature and SCL that combines topic modeling analysis with traditional forms of close reading.
