Additional information

Jean Anderson was Resource Development Officer for the School of English and Scottish Language and Literature and a member of the Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute at the University of Glasgow. She lectured and directed projects in Literary and Linguistic Computing and in Humanities Computing, and is now retired and an honorary research fellow of the College of Arts.

After graduating in Philosophy and Linguistics in 1983, Jean Anderson took a postgraduate diploma course in Computing Science. She worked for three years in commerce and local government as a systems analyst and programmer. Since 1987, she was Programmer, Manager and then Director of the STELLA Project (Software for Teaching English and Scottish Language and Literature), which produced teaching packages for English and Scottish language and literature. She manageed sub-projects in this area, including STARN, the Scots Teaching and Research Network, and worked with members of the School in digitization projects such as 'The Sounds of Scots', which provides digitized readings of Scots poetry by Scots poets (funded by the Scots Cultural Resources Access Network), 'A Guide to Scottish Literature from 1350', 'An Anthology of Early Scottish Poetry', and 'Readings in Old, Middle and Early English'.

She was co-director of the Scottish Corpus of Texts and Speech (SCOTS) project, funded firstly by EPSRC and then by AHRC, and was the Principal Investigator for ENROLLER, a JISC-funded humanities/e-Science collaboration from April 2009 to 2011.
