Corina Koolen, a postdoctoral fellow in Digital Humanities at the Huygens Institute for the history of the Netherlands as of August 2017. I use computational methods to analyse recent Dutch prose fiction, in the project the Riddle of Literary Quality. My PhD thesis is called Reading beyond the female: The relationship between perception of author gender and literary quality (freely available in pdf format). In it, I show that gender (still) has much to do with judgments of literary quality – and how you can use computational analysis to look at work by female authors differently. For more information, you can find my contact details on the Huygens ING website.
