You are cordially invited to three master classes on the forms and functions of punctuation in Late Middle English and Early Modern English. The classes will present three very different perspectives on punctuation, which remains an understudied area. The classes will be relevant to anyone working on historical texts, also non-English ones, not only for the theoretical perspectives on whether punctuation is prosodic or syntactic, but also because editors (and corpus compilers) have a long history of suppressing what punctuation marks are present in the historical source materials themselves.
The event is in part financed by LingPhil, in part by ILOS, which funding is gratefully acknowledged.
To understand the means and ends of readers being positioned as observers in multimodal texts, it is fruitful to take a closer look at crucial constellations within historical print cultures. The Weimar Republic periodical Die literarische Welt (1925-1933) turns to the reader as a 'literary citizen', presenting a panoramic view and a polyphonous forum of conversation.
Under the scope of the ongoing COST action "Distant Reading for European Literary History", João Marques Lopes will discuss literary historical concepts such as romanticism, realism, naturalism, symbolism and modernism in the Portuguese and Brazilian literary field during the 19th century and the first decades of the 20th century. (This lecture will be in Portuguese.)

Open lecture by Zdenka Weber, PhD, musicologist and diplomat.
Gustav Frank, Professor of German Literature and Media Studies, gives an introduction into the field of periodical studies and asks about the complex interplays of literature and periodicals.
Vera Tobin, Associate Professor of Cognitive Science, sheds light on the cognitive structure of surprise and how readers deal with narratives that take an unexpected turn.
In what ways does literature make use of materiality and mediality to sometimes radically engage readers? And what role does the socio-cognitive phenomenon of joint attention play at this?
