„All fam­i­lies and gen­era“: explor­ing the cor­pus of Eng­lish life sci­ences texts
Buchcover“All fam­i­lies and gen­era”: Explor­ing the Cor­pus of Eng­lish Life Sci­ences Texts aims at explor­ing sci­en­tif­ic writ­ing in late Mod­ern Eng­lish. This vol­ume is the fourth of its kind devot­ed to the analy­sis of the rela­tions between lan­guage and dif­fer­ent sci­en­tif­ic dis­ci­plines from 1700 to 1900. Here, forty texts on biol­o­gy and relat­ed fields as com­piled in the Cor­pus of Eng­lish Life Sci­ences Texts (CELiST) con­sti­tute the basis for the fif­teen stud­ies describ­ing sci­en­tif­ic dis­course on method­olog­i­cal issues, the peri­od and the sta­tus of the dis­ci­pline itself as well as pilot stud­ies.
CELiST is accom­pa­nied by an updat­ed ver­sion of the Coruña Cor­pus Tool (CCT), a pur­pose-designed soft­ware. Both the tool and the cor­pus are freely acces­si­ble at the Repos­i­to­rio Uni­ver­si­dade Coruña: CCT at and CELiST at

Embody­ing the tac­tile in Vic­to­ri­an lit­er­a­ture: touch­ing bodies/bodies touch­ing
BuchcoverEmbody­ing the Tac­tile in Vic­to­ri­an Lit­er­a­ture: Touch­ing Bodies/Bodies Touch­ing explores the impor­tance of sen­so­ry stud­ies in mid to late-Vic­to­ri­an lit­er­a­ture. Ann Gag­né rec­on­ciles the social and cul­tur­al issues sur­round­ing embod­i­ment, par­tic­u­lar­ly gen­dered embod­i­ment, through the lens of tac­til­i­ty and how touch can func­tion as embod­ied residue. The main focus on tac­til­i­ty high­lights bod­i­ly inter­ac­tions through nar­ra­tive descrip­tion and posi­tions lived expe­ri­ence as nar­rat­ed and wit­nessed on the body through touch. By explor­ing four dis­tinct types of tactility—reciprocal touch, archi­tec­tur­al touch, self-touch, and tele­path­ic touch—found in Vic­to­ri­an lit­er­a­ture, Gag­né reveals a larg­er social and cul­tur­al focus on ethics, care, the built envi­ron­ment, and ped­a­gogy. Through analy­ses of more canon­i­cal texts such as Gob­lin Mar­ket along­side less­er known works by canon­i­cal authors such as Wilkie Collins’s “Mrs. Zant and the Ghost,” Gag­né demon­strates how these same sen­so­ry con­sid­er­a­tions con­tin­ue to be impor­tant today.
