“Oceanic Exchanges: Tracing Global Information Networks in Historical Newspaper Repositories, 1840-1914 (OcEx),” a project that will study information flow in nineteenth century newspapers across national and linguistic boundaries, was recently awarded a $1.5 million grant as part of The Trans-Atlantic Platform for the Social Sciences and Humanities Digging into Data Challenge. NULab Core Faculty Members Ryan Cordell and David Smith will work alongside an international team of investigators to “break through the conceptual, institutional, and political barriers which have limited working with big humanities data by bringing together historical newspaper experts from different countries and disciplines around common questions,” according to the project’s abstract.
