The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded a two-year grant to Stanford University with collaborators: Mike Keller, Matthew Jockers and Franco Moretti from Stanford University; John Unsworth, Michael Welge and Ted Underwood from the University of Illinois; Dan Cohen from George Mason University; and Tanya Clement from the University of Maryland.

This team of researchers will explore text-mining as a tool for understanding the humanities and will focus on using SEASR/Meandre to solve the particular use cases.
