MACIEJ EDER is Assistant Professor at the Institute of Polish Studies at the Pedagogical University of Krakow, Poland, and at the Institute of Polish Language at the Polish Academy of Sciences, Krakow, Poland. At the latter institution, he works as a lexicographer co-editing the Old-Polish Dictionary (i.e., a complete dictionary of Polish medieval language up to 1500). At the University, he teaches courses in early Polish literature, scholarly editing, and, occasionally, in computational stylistics.

Eder is interested in European literature of the Renaissance and the Baroque, classical heritage in early modern literature, and scholarly editing (his most recent book is a critical bilingual edition of Andreas Volanus’ Latin treatise De libertate politica…, 1572, and its old-Polish translation: O wolności rzeczypospolitej…, 1606). A couple of years ago while doing research on anonymous ancient texts, Eder discovered the fascinating world of computer-based stylometry and non-traditional authorship attribution. His work is now focused on a thorough re-examination of current attribution methods and applying them to non-English languages, e.g. Latin and Ancient Greek.
