Tracking Textual Similarities within Neo-Latin Drama Networks – LREC 2022 Conference: Paper accepted at poster sessionTracking Textual Similarities within Neo-Latin Drama Networks

Our TransLatin team had a paper accepted at the LREC 2022 conference in Marseille!

Soon in the Conference’s proceedings.

Here you can read the paper’s abstract:

This paper describes the first experiments towards tracking the complex and international network of text reuse within the Early Modern (XV-XVII centuries) community of Neo-Latin humanists. Our research, conducted within the framework of the TransLatin project, aims at gaining more evidence on the topic of textual similarities and semi-conscious reuse of literary models. It consists of two experiments conveyed through two main research fields (Information Retrieval and Stylometry), as a means to a better understanding of the complex and subtle literary mechanisms underlying the drama production of Modern Age authors and their transnational network of relations. The experiments led to the construction of networks of works and authors that fashion different patterns of similarity and models of evolution and interaction between texts.
