PhD student, Institute for Literature (UvA), Huygens ING and e-Humanities Group (Royal Netherlands Academy of Art and Sciences)
Kim Jautze started last November (2012) as a PhD student in the project ‘The Riddle of Literary Quality’ at the Huygens ING (KNAW). Within this project she focuses on the ‘low level’ lexical-statistical features that differentiate between literary and non-literary texts, and between texts which are considered ‘good’ or ‘bad’.
In 2010 Kim received her bachelor degree in Dutch Language and Culture from the University of Leiden, and in 2012 she finished her Research Master in Comparative Dutch Literature and Linguistics. Her main research interests lie in the field of both the traditional and the digital humanities: (comparative) literature and (computational) linguistics, as well as book studies and language acquisition.
Next to her doctoral study, Kim works voluntarily as writer and editor for Unlimited Magazine. And in daily life, she also tries to make an effort for factory farming animals.
