Gregory Crane

Gregory Crane has a long-standing interest in the relationship between the humanities and rapidly developing digital technology. Since 1985 he has been engaged in planning and development of the Perseus Project, which he directs as the Editor-in-Chief. Besides supervising the Perseus Project as a whole, he has been primarily responsible for the development of the morphological analysis system which provides many of the links within the Perseus database. He is currently directing a $2,700,000 grant from the Digital Library Initiative to study general problems of digital libraries in the humanities. Dr. Crane is particularly interested in the extent to which broadcast media such as the World Wide Web not only enhance the work of professional researchers and students in formal degree programs but create new audiences outside academia for cultural materials. His current research focuses on "computational humanities" and how this new field can help to democratize information without compromising intellectual rigor.
