Three Research Projects are addressing this theme. Find out more by clicking on the titles:

Genome of Melody [Creativity theme, PI Jan Hajic]: This project considers influences on the stability and diffusion of Gregorian chant using a novel application of bioinformatic techniques.

Phylogenies of Literature [Creativity theme, PI Oleg Sobchuk]: This project aims to draw a macro-map of literary evolution over 300 years using large digital libraries and text mining. [Seedcorn award project]

How stories make us creative [Creativity theme, PI Wojciech Małecki]: This project is a novel consideration of ways in which literature can drive creativity in the reader, rather than focusing on the creativity of the writer. [This project is no longer going ahead.]
