Digital Humanities

Interdisciplinary research and development in the field of Digital Humanities lie at the heart of this research area. In collaboration with other GEI departments, researchers develop, test and adapt new analytical tools on the basis of scholarly inquiry, and evaluate them over the course of the project. These tools are based on the extensive digital holdings of the GEI and its partners in the field of educational media. The interdisciplinary composition of this research area enables the team to make innovative research contributions to current debates on Digital History with a special focus on educational media, and to act in an advisory capacity.
