Digital humanities scholars receive Mellon support

Mellon Foundation, which supports scholarly initiatives in the humanities and arts, has awarded $175,000 to several Stanford faculty members to bridge the technological gap between Asian studies and the digital humanities. The award will finance a Sawyer Seminar, a pop-up research center that will bring together scholars of Asia across the humanities and sciences at Stanford. Its recipients are as versatile as the project’s scope: from the humanities are THOMAS MULLANEY, associate professor of history; JAROSLAW KAPUSCINSKI, associate professor of music; and DAVID MCCLURE, lead software developer at the Stanford Literary Lab.

Recipients from the sciences are DAN JURAFSKY, professor of linguistics and computer science, and JULIE SWEETKIND-SINGER, head of the Banner Earth Sciences Library & Map Collections. The Sawyer Seminar will address a problem that bedevils Asian studies: the scarcity of digital tools and technologies to analyze text in non-Latin languages.
