Who is the next Sally Wyatt?
by Kim Jautze
Inspired by the workshop Stylometry at the European Summer School for Digital Humanities
If you are thinking about becoming a stylometrist, you should definitely learn from Europe’s finest: Maciej Eder and Jan Rybicki. Together with Mike Kestemont, they have developed a library in R with which everyone who has computational stylometric aspirations can perform their analyses very thoroughly. More information you find on the website of their Computational Stylistics Group. I attended one of their workshops in the summer as an attempt to master their stylo package. This particular one was held at the European Summer School in Leipzig. In order to demonstrate what I have learned, I will show which one of the eHumanities project members will be the next Sally Wyatt, style-wise.
