Parse tree of the phrase 'The Riddle of Literary Quality'

Academic homepage of Andreas van Cranenburgh

I am an assistant professor in digital humanities and information sciences at the University of Groningen and a member of the CLCG computational linguistics group. Previously I was a postdoc at Heinrich Heine Universität Düsseldorf in the Beyond CFG project, and a PhD candidate in the project The Riddle of Literary Quality. My research areas are computational linguistics and computational humanities, with a particular focus on literature and coreference.
