Folklore Studies and the Big Digital Humanities

(As John Laudun has already noted) warm congratulations are due to our UCLA folklore colleague Timothy R. Tangherlini who (with Peter Leonard of the University of Washington) has secured a Google Digital Humanities Research Award for their project Northern Insights: Tools and Techniques for Automated Literary Analysis, Based on the Scandinavian Corpus in Google Books. Tim is a leader in digital humanities research whose focus is on big projects that explore ways of dealing with large amounts of folklore data. This is important work and I am glad that Google is recognizing the work that Tim and his colleagues have been pursuing. Congratulations!
