Digging into Data 670x


Melodee Beals has been awarded funding from the Trans-Atlantic Platform for Social Sciences and Humanities (T-AP) to undertake a two-year project on the flow of news across national and linguistic boundaries in the nineteenth century. Her work with global digitised newspaper collections will contribute to the Digging into Data Challenge and the wider aims of T-AP to promote collaboration between South America, North America and Europe on research projects that use “big data” to address questions in the social sciences and humanities.
