Professor Elaine Treharne reached into her purse and pulled out an original Gothic manuscript that dated back more than three centuries.

“See the notes in the margins?” she asked, pointing to the faded handwriting trailing rows and rows of intricate calligraphy. “Isn’t that neat?”

These are the kinds of manuscripts Treharne works with on a day-to-day basis as a member of the University’s Literary Lab, one of the multiple initiatives at the intersection of the core humanities and technology at Stanford.
