CLiGS (Computational Literary Genre Stylistics) is a junior research group in which researchers from Literary Studies and Computer Science work together. We study, use, adapt and develop quantitative methods of text analysis to investigate French, Spanish and Spanish-American literary texts. Our main focus is on genre stylistics, that is on studying textual differences between various literary genres and the stylistic development of genres over the course of literary history. We are part of the Department for Literary Computing at the University of Würzburg, Germany and publish news about our activities on our project website at and make code and text collections available at
