head, Oxford Text Archive, Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford

Martin Wynne runs the Oxford Text Archive, a repository of digital data which, for more than forty years, has made available digital data for research in languages and literature, and has worked to preserve and share important historical texts. He is a former director of the European research infrastructure CLARIN, which supports the use of digital language data and tools in research across the humanities and social sciences. Martin has a background in research and teaching in languages and linguistics, has worked at a number of universities and research institutions in the UK and in Europe, speaks a number of European languages, and continues to travel widely, despite now being happily settled in Oxford. Martin looks forward to a future of improved cooperation and collaboration with European colleagues after Brexit.
