             Subject: High Performance Computing applications in the humanities?

    In 2001 the British Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) called for
    pilot (small-scale) projects in e-social science that use Grid technologies,
    that is, what can be termed applications of supercomputers or high
    performance computing (HPC). (The ESRC site is at http://www.esrc.ac.uk

    ESRC lists corpus-based computational linguistics (particularly corpus
    tagging and content analysis) and qualitative data sharing as
    pilot-project areas of potential interest.

    Are readers of Humanist aware of any humanities projects that now use HPC
