Beyond Authorship
24-27 June 2014
University of Newcastle
This symposium seeks to move beyond authorship as the primary focus of corpus-based studies in early modern literature, to consider broader questions of language and style, genre and form, influence and adaptation; to interrogate the new literary histories enabled by electronic text corpora, and the new methods of analysis they make possible.
Abstracts due by 1 February 2014. For more information, click here.
