'Professor Hugh Craig, Director of the Centre for Literary and Linguistic Computing at the University of Newcastle, New South Wales, is one of the few world leaders in the highly skilled development and application of quantitative, statistical and other computing techniques of literary and linguistic computing to early modern English literary studies. The implications of his research, most notably fashioned through analysis of Shakespeare and his dramatic contemporaries, have broadened into author attribution of unsigned articles in the nineteenth-century press, the dating of undated works from their word-frequency patterns, and the analysis of the linguistic characteristics of authors, characters and periods.

'Professor Craig is also Deputy Head, Faculty of Education and Arts at the University of Newcastle, and has been Head, Department of English; Head, School of Language and Media; and Head, School of Humanities and Social Science. He has held visiting positions at Magdalen College, Oxford; the Istituto di Linguistica Computazionale, Pisa; the University of Canterbury, New Zealand; the University of Victoria, Canada; and the University of Wuerzburg, Germany. He was convenor of Computing Arts 2004@Newcastle and of a series of digital humanities symposia such as Humanities Computing: A Practicable Future (2001), Language Individuation (2011) and Beyond Authorship (2014).'
