Project description

This cultural historical project seeks to approach issues of collaborative authorship in twelfth-century Latin literature with stylometric methods. With a number of selected, experimental case-studies, we aim to contribute to both the theoretical debate about individual and collective creativity in literary scholarship, and to extend the usual application of stylometric methods to new questions that go beyond mere authorship attribution.
