Digital Humanties Forensic Authorship Analysis Roundtable
|Dates:||15 May 2019|
|What is it:||Conferences|
|Organiser:||School of Arts, Languages and Cultures|
We are pleased to announce the 1st Roundtable on Practices and Standards in Forensic Authorship Analysis. The event, supported by the International Association of Forensic Linguists (https://www.iafl.org/) and hosted by the Centre for Digital Humanities at The University of Manchester (https://www.digital-humanities.manchester.ac.uk/), is aimed at moving the field of forensic authorship analysis towards standardisation in the practice by improving the dialogue between scholars with different approaches. One of the most important goals of this event series is to create a forum for discussion and development of interdisciplinary collaborations that will lead to achieve solutions that are rigorous both methodologically and theoretically.
For this first roundtable, the event will be structured with two keynote speakers, Efstathios Stamatatos (University of the Aegean) and Stefan Evert (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg) combined with a series of talks by other experts researching methodological or theoretical issues in the field of authorship analysis.
The event will also be streamed online and recorded to reach audiences across the world who cannot physically attend. Details on the way to access the web streaming will be made available closer to the date.
The event is FREE to attend but for all details and to register please go to: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/forensic-authorship-analysis-roundtable-tickets-59772040783
