Stefania Forlini

Position: 

Annual Fellow 2014-15

Research Activities: 

Stefania Forlini has a SSHRC-funded pilot study to develop a computer-assisted approach to the study of early science fiction (1840-1899) in order to provide a more rigorous account of its emergence and evolution in the context of popular periodicals.  Rather than focusing on a few supposedly representative texts to define early science fiction (as most critics do), this study will employ technologies of textual analysis and data visualization to assess a much larger sample of published works, tracing the evolution of formal features that came to define this popular genre.
