Abstract English

‘The Literary Field Guide’ analyzes any .txt file and provides a breakdown of the text’s weather, climate, geographic features, flora, and fauna, in the style of a U.S. National Park Service brochure. As a teaching tool, the Guide creates a site and sense of engagement between the viewer and a complex literary ecology. As a provocation, it creates data visualizations of literary landscapes in hopes of calling attention to the artificial and constructed natures of all such visualizations.

Keywords

Digital humanities, ecology, landscape, literature, nature
