The International Society for the Empirical Study of Literature and Media
(Internationale Gesellschaft fr Empirische Literaturwissenschaft
und Medien, IGEL) aims at building bridges between the Humanities
(e.g., literary studies, film studies) and the Social Sciences
(e.g., psychology, sociology, anthropology) using quantitative and
qualitative research methods in the study of (response to) literary
texts and media. The principal duties of the Society are to support
scientific projects through information and cooperation, to further
personal contact in all areas of research supported by the Society,
to support students and junior researchers in the field of empirical
literary research, and to press for the application of empirical
results. IGEL has been meeting these goals in a variety of activities:
the biennial conferences of the organization are a unique forum for
the exchange of ideas in the empirical approaches to literature,
media and historical reception studies, as well as computer science
and artificial intelligence.
