Vina Tirven-Gadum

Dr. Vina Tirven-Gadum is an Associate professor of French Literature in Alberta, Canada. Her main area of research is in the field of Authorship Attribution; she tests the hypothesis that style is dictated by the subconscious and forms the “genetic” fingerprint of the writer’s work. She evaluates the reliability of this concept in light of pseudonymous works, and of works of disputed authorship. She is now doing preliminary research on the writings of Alexandre Dumas-père with a view to establishing whether the real author behind the novels for which he is best known: Les Trois Mousquetaires, Le Comte de Monte-Cristo, La Reine Margot could have been written (wholly or partly) by Auguste Jules Maquet
