UON Emeritus Professor to give keynote at DH2015

30 June 2014

John Burrows, an Emeritus Professor of the University of Newcastle, now in his 80s but still active in the Centre for Literary and Linguistic Computing, has been invited to give the opening keynote address at DH2015, the international digital humanities conference.

The conference will be coming to Australia for the first time in 2015. This honour goes with his continuing recognition as the founder of computational stylistics. 

Professor Burrows' article presenting the Delta method continues to sit at the top of the most cited list for Literary and Linguistic Computing, the premier journal in the field. 

His most recent article, co-authored with Prof Peter Anstey, appeared in 2013 in English Manuscript Studies and confirmed the attribution of two manuscripts to the philosopher John Locke.
