Abstract

The emergence of digital reading platforms is opening up new avenues for the empirical study of how readers interact with literature. Such study of digital reading requires a deep structured and explicit integration of micro- and macro-scale research methodologies. In our vision, empirical studies are of critical importance to address Humanities questions, but they must be reconciled within the scope of the Humanities. In this scenario, we propose a vision and framework for DH as a structural integration of both empirical studies on reading and Humanities studies (such as reception studies and book history). A case study based on webcomics will also be included as an example.
