Social Network Analysis of Career Trajectories in Polish Literature After 1989

The project provides insights into literary reception of the Polish authors after the cultural transition of 1989 by applying social network analysis (SNA) methods to analyse relationships mined from bibliographical and textual data. The project produces several case studies on the material derived from Polish Literary Bibliography (PBL) and the Corpus of Literary Discourse 1822-2022 (KDL). The case studies employ network analysis and visualisation techniques to study the relationships between the actors of literary life and provide data-stories of career trajectories and success (or failure) patterns of particular writers (with a focus on Olga Tokarczuk).
The project focuses on selected, diverse group of authors to produce data stories of their career trajectories. These are presented as data stories based on mixed method approach to collected datasets.
