DSI Research in Beta: Home, Again: Repetition and Literary Style in the Bonifatian Missions, 700-900

Amy Clark
Friday, January 28, 2022
11:00 AM-12:00 PM
Off Campus Location
This work is taken from a second book project, which reframes the Latin literature written by English missionaries in Europe as part of English literary history. The monasteries established by Boniface and his West Saxon companions preserved uniquely English texts and ways of imagining the world -- in places beyond the reach of the Viking and Norman invasions that would rock England itself. In this project, Amy explores not only what was preserved but what was generated by the literary community of early English people outside England. In the talk she will give, she will discuss my methods for quantifying the unusual Latin style of the Bonifatian missions using Python text analysis and other stylometric tools.
