Glenn Roe completed his PhD in French at the University of Chicago in 2010 and is currently a Mellon Fellow in Digital Humanities at the University of Oxford's e-Research Centre. His research focuses on the challenge of "big data"--especially text data--for humanities scholarship. Text mining, machine learning, and traditional textual analysis of large-scale curated and uncurated text collections are used in concert, both to put a finer point on the exchange and translation of ideas in 18th- and 19th-century France and to identify the transnational social network or "Republic of Letters" in the early modern period.
