Submissions are invited for a special issue of the journal on the topic of stylometry and Shakespeare.

These might be on any aspect of Shakespeare’s style, with either internal comparisons within his corpus or external comparisons to other writers, of the time or from other periods, on stylistic matters or on questions of attribution, and either practical or theoretical or both. Papers which give some attention to the statistical significance of findings are particularly welcome. They can be written in Italian or in English.

Prospective contributors are invited to send a 300-word abstract to Hugh Craig by 30 September, 2019.

Proposals will be selected by Nov. 15, 2019

Final deadline for completed papers: 30 May 2020

The issue is slated for December 2020
