Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the 1st Roundtable on Practices and Standards in Forensic Authorship Analysis, which will be held at the University of Manchester on the 15 May 2019.

The event, supported by the International Association of Forensic Linguists ( and hosted by the Centre for Digital Humanities at the University of Manchester (, is aimed at moving the field of forensic authorship analysis towards standardisation in the practice by improving the dialogue between scholars with different approaches. One of the most important goals of this event series is to create a forum for discussion and development of interdisciplinary collaborations that will lead to achieve solutions that are rigorous both methodologically and theoretically.

For this first roundtable, the event will be structured with two keynote speakers, Efstathios Stamatatos (University of the Aegean) and Stefan Evert (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg) combined with a series of talks by other experts researching methodological or theoretical issues in the field of authorship analysis.

For full details and to register please go to:

The event is free to attend and will also be streamed online. Details of the online streaming will be released closer to the event date. No registration is needed to attend the event online!

Looking forward to welcoming you in Manchester soon (virtually or in person)!
