Authorship & Influence

Hello all!

Sorry for the late post. I am writing from a Denton hotel as I speed back to Austin for THATCamp.

In my work at the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities in Lincoln, Nebraska, this summer, I focused some attention on authorship attribution, and I’d love to learn more about & chat about this process and the methodology. I’d particularly like to know more about Matthew Jocker’s influence study of the Book of Mormon, which measured authorial signals using Nearest Shrunken Centroid. Any attribution campers in our midst?

The future of the archival profession! The role of the university! EAD! I would happily turn my head from attribution to engage in these issues.

See you all soon!
