MARTOS NUNEZ, Eloy  and  MARTOS GARCIA, Aitana. Categorizations of reading and cultural praxis in the digital age: distant reading vs. close reading. Investig. bibl [online]. 2018, vol.32, n.74, pp.19-33. ISSN 2448-8321.

Through a review of the work of Franco Moretti and others, this paper examines the concept of distant reading and close reading in recognition of abundant information and diverse phenomena of cultural praxis of the digital age, ranging from the traditional education models to modern cultural currents. The paper concludes that in the current context of globalization and hybridization of contents, the school and the library should learn from alternative cultural practices and strive to return to intensive reading under other assumptions and other strategies.

Keywords : Distant Reading; Close Reading; Text; Library; School.
