Oxford is leading one of 14 new collaborative and interdisciplinary research projects investigating questions in the humanities and social sciences using large-scale computational techniques. This is the fourth Digging into Data Challenge, funded by the Transatlantic Platform for the Social Sciences and Humanities, of which AHRC and ESRC form a part with 14 other international research funders.
Oxford’s project is a 2 year, £566,000 collaboration between the e-Research Centre, the Bodleian and three major international partners, bringing together more than 500,000 Medieval and Renaissance manuscripts from key databases.
