        Subject: statistical evaluation of humanistic scholarship

The flurry of concern about peer review in the sciences impels me to
ask if any gentle Humanist readers know of serious attempts to apply
some of the standard statistical methods (meta analysis, significance
analysis with or without null hypothesis) to work in the humanities.
