Both Narratology and Digital Humanities look back on a remarkable 
history of research and progress. One after the other, the narratological 
and the digital research communities evolved into large international 
and interdisciplinary networks. While cooperation between the two 
disciplines would be possible and beneficial in many areas, they often 
still work in parallel rather than together. A workshop at Hamburg 
University brought together Literary Studies researchers from 
Narratology and from Digital Humanities to (a) discuss requirements 
for and possibilities of a digital operationalisation of analytical 
categories from Narratology and Literary Studies and (b) 
theoretically reflect upon possible connections between more 
traditional and digital approaches. The present volume combines the 
workshop contributions from both disciplines and thus attempts to 
further the bridge-building and dialogue.
