Hugh Craig works at the University of Newcastle in Australia, where he is Director of the Centre for Literary and Linguistic Computing and the Centre for 21st Century Humanities. His research interests are in the application of statistics to literary style, especially in the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. He was on the Attribution Board of the New Oxford Shakespeare and this edition, which came out in 2016, endorses many of the proposals about the Shakespeare canon made in a 2009 book Craig co-edited with Arthur F. Kinney, Shakespeare, Computers, and the Mystery of Authorship. He has long-standing collaborations with colleagues in speech pathology and bioinformatics, from whom he has learned about language metrics and information theory. His recent work focuses on stylistic description rather than attribution. Style, Computers, and Early Modern Drama: Beyond Authorship, written with Brett Greatley-Hirsch, is due out from Cambridge University Press in mid-2017.
