Abstract (in English): 

Mass-digitised collections are an increasingly important part of knowledge infrastructure for literary history and the humanities generally. This book explores the requirements and possibilities of research in this context. In investigating over 9,200 works of extended fiction identified in the largest open-access collection of mass-digitised historical newspapers internationally, it shows how data-rich approaches to literary history can revolutionise our understanding of literature in the past, including the categories and conceptual frameworks through which we perceive it.
