JB So, your experience was unluckier than mine – it’s a wonder you kept going. HC Well, that was unrelated to Computational Stylistics. I must have noted your work, particularly authorship attribution, happening here. I was working on a problem on Ben Jonson’s additions to the Spanish Tragedy and I thought “maybe we could apply this to Computational Stylistics”, as I don’t think it was called then.

Burrows emphasises the network of formal and informal, national and international expertise that he benefitted from, for example, John Dawson in Cambridge and Susan Hockey in Oxford. So too they reflect on the positive results that the scepticism they sometimes encountered had on their work. As central as computing has been to their research lives they emphasise that their main aim was to study literature and continuing to publish in core literature journals (in addition to DH journals) has been an important aspect of this.
