Thoughts on Granulating "Separation"

I found this the most challenging assignment of the course—not because it required technical skill, but because it seemed, at first, to require an utterly foreign analytical approach. I took about double the time allotted to complete the assignment. Looking back, I see that the struggle lay with trying to understand the computational lexicon and then applying it to an analysis of my own. The process was slow at first, but eventually I started to see the continuities between granulation and literary analysis. By the time I had completed the assignment, though, I was thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to put my skills in literary criticism to work in this new context. The exercise deepened my understanding of digital humanities work and made me feel that maybe I could participate in such work—and like it!
